This reality only underlines the need for agility. In fact, any technology decision taken today needs to consider the question: will the threat be the same in a few years from now? The likelihood of that answer being No nearly every time should fuel the decision makers to choose technology that is based on open architecture and that can unify the information and the data. In this session, we will also cover the parking management challenges that hospitals need to consider. Join Olivier Dumoulin and Nada Ebeid for this part seminar part discussion session. This webinar will discuss:

  • Challenges in the Healthcare environment for staff, the impact it has on patients and the overall hospital experience
  • How hospital security professionals can leverage their security platforms to look for operational efficiencies with their security processes and beyond
