Healthcare Organisations face a myriad of issues and challenges in addition to ensuring the safety of staff and patients
DVTel was consistently asked to upgrade CCTV surveillance capabilities without increasing costs
DVTel offers a comprehensive turnkey Network Video Management System (NVMS)

Hospitals often have large geographically dispersed facilities and multiple perimeters for which they must provide rapid response to any security threats that may arise.  In addition to patients and staff working in these high pressure environments, healthcare facilities are like mini-cities complete with a constant stream of visitors, vendors, deliveries, repair work, and many other entries and exits from their buildings that need to be monitored and documented.

The Challenge

In eight recent healthcare facility installations, DVTel was consistently asked to upgrade CCTV surveillance capabilities without increasing costs.  Like any industry, healthcare faces significant budget constraints.  Most healthcare end users want to improve surveillance, ensure better video quality, and store video for longer periods all while integrating these upgraded video solutions within existing security infrastructure and business systems, as well as planned future expansions.

The Solution

Partnering with best-of-breed consultants, security application providers, and system integrators, DVTel offers a comprehensive turnkey Network Video Management System (NVMS) that provides unprecedented ease of integration while fitting seamlessly into an existing network environment. The NVMS' open architecture is highly scalable, offers end users flexibility in choosing hardware, and delivers cost effective storage and data protection.  The result is a system that upgrades surveillance and safety, improves total cost of ownership, and significantly enhances return on investment.

The Highlights

  • At Detroit's Henry Ford Hospital, administrators wanted an eventual 200+ new camera system recorded at one site viewable at multiple locations remotely, and from PDAs, and one that could accommodate cameras from multiple manufacturers.  The DVTel installation came in $10,000 under a traditional analog system option and laid the groundwork for future savings of over $60,000 when remote viewing is implemented to replace security personnel.
  • Baptist St. Anthony Hospital wanted a network video system to overcome past shortcomings like the poor quality of VCRs and the heavy maintenance required for DVRs.  The new 120-camera installation sits on the hospital network backbone, providing high-quality viewing and recording, critical redundancy, and integration capabilities with the emergency intercom systems in the hospital's parking facilities.
  •  The JPS Center for Women had multiple sites in need of monitoring and recording, and the Center wanted monitoring done by police from the main hospital building.  DVTel's scalable system enables the hospital to add cameras as sites come on line and saves the organization tens of thousands of dollars by eliminating the need for guards at the various remote sites.
  • The Tarant County Health Center needed to extend surveillance operations from the main hospital to a remote facility three plus blocks away.  Hospital security personnel can now do live viewing and archiving of the remote site with no officers located on premises.  The enhanced system performance and the reduction in needed manpower have provided a strong incentive for the Center to integrate other remote facilities into the main hospital's central monitoring station.
