PSIM provides security protection to South African hospital

CNL Software, a provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, and e-Thele SQD Networks, a designer and supporter of Situational Management and PSIM solutions, have been chosen to provide a comprehensive security management system for a hospital facility in South Africa.

Healthcare security is facing increased violence, crime and vandalism. The security challenge includes maintaining the safety of patients, staff and visitors, the protection of medicines and medical equipment as well as securing facilities and buildings. Mitigation of security incidents is essential as breaches can have life safety consequences, as well as capital and equipment loss, financial penalties and damage to reputation.
IPSecurityCenter PSIM is a software based integration and management platform, which connects disparate security systems such as security and building control systems, patient and staff interfaces, RFID patient tagging, nurse call, HR and other business management systems. The system provides control room operators with real-time situation awareness, through a common operating picture (COP) and following an alert, alarm or trigger.
“In the first phase of this healthcare project, IPSecurityCenter PSIM will integrate the hospital’s CCTV, access control, fire alarm systems and intercom technologies to offer centralized security management and situational awareness”, explains Wolfgang Engling, Managing Director of e-Thele SQD Networks.  “Hospitals across South Africa are facing similar security challenges and are realizing that technology is a dependable option to help them reduce this risk. This innovative project will be a flagship in South Africa and a benchmark for others to follow. We are delighted to have been selected to deliver it.”

“It is essential for the hospital to provide the highest possible levels of security in the facility while retaining a welcoming environment for patients, visitors and staff”, says James Condron, VP Sales - CNL Software. “IPSecurityCenter offers a balance between these two often competing factors. Hospitals are able to make security systems as discreet as possible, while IPSecurityCenter constantly monitors these systems producing real-time intelligence and situational awareness from across the facility. Getting the right information, to the right people at the right time allows security teams to react faster and more precisely to potential incidents if and when they occur.”
