Radiation detection for hospital perimeters

Splinternet : 22 May, 2008  (Application Story)
DefenTect to be used to prevent theft of radioactive material from medical facilities in the mid Western area of America
Splinternet Holdings has been selected to deploy security systems and technology upgrades for a group of mid-western hospitals, doctors' offices and administration buildings under a subcontract with Argus Technologies. Splinternet's gamma radiation detection network, DefenTect, will protect hospital perimeters and portals wherever radiological treatment material is stored.

Splinternet will implement overall technology systems upgrades including computer and physical security networks at healthcare alliance locations. Splinternet threat awareness solutions are compatible with and overlay other data related systems at customer facilities.

Systems work will begin in June 2008. The cost of the project is $1.4M.
"We pride ourselves on meeting emerging healthcare challenges with innovative solutions," said Mark Renfro, Argus Technologies. "Splinternet is capable of providing state-of-the-art systems and safeguards that are leading edge."

"Argus Technologies is a leader in healthcare information exchange solutions," said James Ackerly, Splinternet CEO. "Installing systems to better manage and protect their customers is a progressive defense for healthcare communities."
Florida-based Argus Technologies provides information technology services to hospitals and healthcare communities including data integration and business process management tools. Argus specialises in healthcare applications, community healthcare networks and regional databases of secured healthcare data, creating a bridge between hospitals, clinics, physicians and patients. Argus' suites of remotely-hosted applications enable enterprises to integrate all key points in the extended health chain: patients, providers, clinicians, employees, and payers. Remotely-hosted solutions include disaster recovery, hospital and clinic solutions (lab, pharmacy, nursing), electronic medical records and a medical billing service bureau.
