Physical Identity & Access Management

Creating a Visitor Management System & Patient System That Work Together

Hospitals and clinics are places where everyone deserves to feel safe — staff, patients, employees, contractors, and others. Part of that security comes from having a strong and robust visitor management system that allows you to understand and control everyone coming into the facility.

What the Future Holds for Unified Access Control

The future of access control is a dynamic landscape with unprecedented sophistication and capabilities. As with any uncharted territory, new risks result as well. Regulations such as GDPR, California privacy laws and others continue to impact how businesses deploy and manage security solutions. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with ever-evolving regulations with limited legacy technologies and associated compounded security risks.

Why a Hospital Visitor Management System Is a Vital Part of the Healthcare Experience

Families entrust your medical facility with the care of their loved ones, and part of that is balancing security and accessibility to create a welcoming and safe environment. Get that balance right, and you can reduce the stress that goes with being at a hospital or clinic. Get it wrong, and it can become more challenging to manage anxious family members or friends.
