Press Release Summary: In addition to the health and wellbeing of its patient, new ASSUTA hospital placed safety and security at the top of its agenda, and has selected DDS customized solution to equip their brand new premises
Press Release Body: Jerusalem, Israel, February 20, 2008 - DDS, a leading manufacturer of access control and alarm management solutions, announces that its solution has been selected to monitor the access control of new Assuta hospital in Ramat Achayal, Israel. More than 800 entrance doors will be supervised by DDS systems, assuring protection of almost all divisions, from doctor rooms to drugs rooms, store rooms, nurseries and surgery rooms. Access control challenges of hospitals are very specific. They include questions such as: How can well intentioned, but curious, visitors be prevented from wandering around and visiting every part of the hospital? How can access be easier for hospital personnel? How can parking areas and lifts be shared by both personnel and visitors? In general, how can the hospital maintain its open and welcoming character for the patients and their families, while restricting access when needed? After evaluating various enterprise solutions, Assuta's hospital decided to implement solutions from DDS, which has delivered proven solutions to the hospital industry, in particular in Spain, Turkey and Greece. TPL controllers proved the most appropriate on a number of counts. Robust and reliable, TPL controllers give complete control over 'who goes where' and restrict access to non-authorized people. Also the systems records who is on the site and where they are at any particular time. Lift access is limited to users according to the specific floors that have been assigned to them. Car park entry is accepted only if it remains places in the defined group members. Assuta Hospital was also looking for high-performing access control solution easy to integrate with other security systems, easy to install and to use, at competitive cost. Ardan's company, DDS distributor for Israel came with a sophisticated offer to Assuta's hospital, which includes Wizcon integration allowing connection to other security systems with DDS Amadeus software (such as intrusion security application). Even if access controls are more critical to protect medical employees, patient and visitors as compared to properties, more hospitals look for prevent themselves from robbery. Therefore, Ardan's solution includes RFID technology integration allowing tagging, tracking, and protecting property vulnerable to theft: every Assuta's towel and medical device will be then tracked with RFID technology, and will be immediately signaled if taken out of the authorized department. Staff, patients and visitors alike feel safe and secure on the premises, and all medicines and equipment used in the hospital are stored securely. The security system needed to be easy to use and reliable, yet flexible enough to adapt to the Assuta's future requirements. The system also allows for future expansion and upgrades, making it a cost effective, long-term security solution for the hospital.
