Medical Facility Security: IP-Based Access Control Systems

With doctors, nurses, staff, patients, and visitors coming and going, it is sometimes difficult to keep track of the numerous secure areas in today’s medical facilities. From outside doors and doors to wards, offices, and other rooms to medicine storage cabinets, medicine carts, computers, and medical records, there is an immediate need to restrict access to sensitive areas. Failure to monitor these areas can lead to prescription drug theft, employee assault, mistakes with medication, the compromising of patient medical records, and much more!

There is, however, a simple security solution…An Access Control System, which establishes an integrated system that runs off a medical facility’s existing IT network. And since these systems piggyback off of an existing network, it is easy to install door access readers to a common network switch with standard cables.

Comprehensive access control management software is then used to manage an unlimited number of readers from a single, Web-enabled interface.
