Gozio Health, an industry-renowned, customisable end-to-end mobile platform, and CriticalArc, creators of SafeZone, the unified safety, security and emergency management solution, have announced a partnership that enables hospitals and health systems to enhance security and safety, by adding CriticalArc’s SafeZone to Gozio’s location-based services platform.
SafeZone - Gozio integration
Nearly 75% of workplace assaults occur in a healthcare setting, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. CriticalArc’s SafeZone utilises Gozio’s Bluetooth infrastructure to enable healthcare staff to call for emergency help or routine assistance in any location, indoors or out, using either their smart phones or a dedicated wearable alarm.
The organisation’s security dispatchers can pinpoint the precise locations of any person calling for help, and the locations of the nearest responders, making it easy for them to coordinate a response, typically 50% faster.
Enhancing healthcare worker safety
Increasing healthcare worker safety enables staff satisfaction, reduces turnover and ultimately improves patient outcomes"
Glenn Farrant, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Co-Founder of CriticalArc, said “Healthcare worker safety is a critical component of patient care and something that is top of mind for healthcare providers. By adding CriticalArc’s safety solution to Gozio’s way-finding infrastructure, hospitals and health systems can confidently prioritise staff safety and more efficiently respond to workplace violence incidents.”
Glenn Farrant further adds, “Increasing healthcare worker safety enables staff satisfaction, reduces turnover and ultimately improves patient outcomes.”
“For the hospitals and health systems, we work with the safety of staff as a top priority, even more so with the challenges of delivering care during a pandemic,” said Joshua Titus, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Founder of Gozio Health.
Security and incident response in healthcare
Joshua Titus adds, “Partnering with CriticalArc was an obvious choice, given their deep experience with security and incident response in the healthcare space. With the ‘safety everywhere’ protection that this partnership offers, healthcare workers can better focus on what they do best, provide care to their patients.”
“Unlike a typical staff duress system, SafeZone helps healthcare providers keep their people safe with one unified system,” said Glenn Farrant, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CriticalArc, adding “By providing safety everywhere, on campus, in buildings, parking areas, community clinics, and even for staff making home visits, SafeZone is transforming the way healthcare providers manage the safety of their staff.”
