Locked Up: Trends In Hospital Access Control Devices And Technologies (10/01/2010)

The need to encourage an "open environment" for the community while maintaining rigorous security precautions to discourage transgressors has challenged hospital access control device makers like never before. However, manufacturers are responding with a wide array of technology-enabled solutions that are proving both effective and practical for health care facilities. Users and providers of access control systems in hospitals are about to enter a brave new world of technology while keeping their focus on the practicality of meeting budgets in the quest to improve security. Areas of focus include total integration, implementing Internet protocol (IP) network-based systems and maintaining an accounting trail through electronic auditing of human activity.
