The Situation

Adelante Healthcare is a private non-profit healthcare provider located in Phoenix, Arizona. It currently operates seven health centers throughout Maricopa County, offering a wide array of services to patients of all economic backgrounds.

The Challenge

“We had to get away from lock and key,” recalled Larry Kadin, Facilities and Purchasing Manager at Adelante. “With keys, I don’t know who has a key and how many copies may have been made.” As a healthcare provider, Adelante must ensure their facilities and all data are protected in a highly secure manner. Kadin and his team researched different access control providers. They contacted a Brivo representative to provide a live demonstration of the Brivo ACS WebService technology to staff from the HR and IT departments.

The Solution

Upon seeing the live demonstration of the Brivo systems capabilities, Kadin related, “It was an easy sell at that point. I’ve not seen anything that comes close to what Brivo provides.” To date, Adelante has installed Brivo access control on 18 doors, including internal doors to IT rooms, at their seven facilities. “Since the Brivo system is scalable on-demand, more locations and doors may be added as needed. Adelente is currently planning to add at least six doors as more square footage comes online.”

Adelante has issued access cards to over 200 employees at their seven facilities with the Brivo system. In addition to managing employee access, outside janitorial staff and property management staff are also programmed into the system and issued cards which offer them access when and where needed. “The Brivo system is a joy to work with. It saves us so much time compared to other systems we were looking at,” reported Kadin.

The Highlights

  • The two biggest advantages for Adelante: the ability to install the system at an additional location, and the wide reach that Kadin and staff now have across all facilities with just a few keystrokes.
  • “Going keyless has been great for our organisation, we don’t have security issues and breaches when we don’t have all those keys out there,” Kadin said.
  • Adelante now has one person administering multiple sites from one web interface. “That’s huge for us. We have better records and better access to data, and we can provide needed information to other departments,” said Kadin.
  • Adelante security staff enjoy the flexibility and power they have with Brivo ACS WebService. Access can be programmed easily, quickly, and as Kadin said, “In a manner of minutes it’s done.”
  • With the Brivo system, Kadin related how he can pulse a door from anywhere he has an Internet connection to instantly allow entry to someone on the weekend or after hours. “People are amazed.”
