Milestone Systems has announced the launch of its XProtect Hospital Assist, a video solution that allows medical staff to remotely observe multiple patients at once and respond to incidents quickly, easing the burden of some routine tasks and increasing situational awareness.
“There is no doubt that the irreplaceable human touch of healthcare professionals is essential and by integrating data-driven video technology into their daily routine, they can now be even further empowered,” said Rahul Yadav, Chief Technology Officer at Milestone Systems.
“With the use of XProtect Hospital Assist, hospitals can improve patient care by offering an additional layer of support for the healthcare staff. With an extra set of eyes and ears in patient rooms, our solution enables rapid response to incidents, ensuring the highest quality of patient care. And by addressing critical staff shortages and streamlining efficiency, XProtect Hospital Assist paves the way for a better, safer and more connected hospital environment worldwide.”
Built on the foundations of XProtect – Milestone’s open-platform video management software – XProtect Hospital Assist is designed for medical units treating patients who need round-the-clock or situational observation, such as people in intensive care and rehabilitation units.
According to the company, to ensure patient privacy, the technology is fitted with a live video blurring function. Other features include automatic fall detection, alerting medical staff when a patient falls and saving valuable seconds on their response time.
According to Milestone, the XProtect open platform can seamlessly ingest and process vast amounts of data from various sources such as analytic software, specialty cameras, sensors and existing facility systems. The video management system within many healthcare organizations now serves as the unifying platform, bridging the gap between raw data and actionable insights.
The Milestone XProtect open platform video management system currently supports more than 13,000 different security devices from more than 700 of the industry’s leading manufacturers. Technology partners include providers of network video cameras, NVRs, cloud technologies, access control, alarm and detection systems, video analytics, GPS technology, laser scanners, emergency call boxes and much more.
