Healthcare organizations today are finding network video solutions to be flexible, cost-effective and of high quality for their remote monitoring and surveillance applications in the areas of security, maintenance and ability to remotely assist healthcare givers and patients in distant locations.
Application areas have included:
Securing server rooms
With important data such as patient files, digital storage of research material and a huge quantity of other critical information now being stored on computer servers, healthcare organizations are implementing network video surveillance products to secure their server rooms.
Authorized hospital staff can view live images of different locations from any workstation and receive instant alerts if motion is detected in the server rooms or any area being monitored.
VISICU, a healthcare solutions company, for example, has used Axis network video servers and audio modules to provide top quality video and audio feeds via a secure, high bandwidth connection to doctors in remote locations. The network video technology enables doctors and nurses specializing in intensive care medicine to communicate with ICU caregivers and patients from a remote monitoring center.
