Lenel’s systems are installed in the most secure hospitals, medical centers and laboratories around the world.
Pharmacies, emergency rooms and other critical areas – with expensive equipment and prescription medications – are of special concern among health care facilities.
Lenel's OnGuard security system can monitor who walks into and out of these areas, can determine who has viewed stored data, and can quickly respond to an alarm from any point in the facility.
OnGuard offers comprehensive security for people, assets and property through a wide array of security products seamlessly integrated into a single robust system.
OnGuard’s portfolio of security products helps you provide a safer environment for the thousands of individuals who go into and out of your health care facility each day. Patients’ health histories, employee data and visitor information is protected through customizable access levels, account linkages and highly secure data sharing between multiple systems. A password-protection feature ensures that stored data is not tampered with or removed. Authorized personnel can control access to highly sensitive areas using cardholder identification, reader access grants/denials and video verification. This is accomplished through one single OnGuard system, utilizing one credential and one centralized monitoring station.
Integration With Health Care And Third-Party Systems
Hospitals and care centers around the world have their own systems to manage day-to-day business activities (patient log/discharge, human resources, intensive care or critical care unit, infant protection, etc.). Through its open architecture design, OnGuard facilitates bidirectional communication with third- party databases such as those in visitor management, parking, patient records, pharmacy, catering, human resources and finance systems. OnGuard also integrates support for a number of fire alarm, intercom and personal safety/duress systems. If a patient, visitor or employee leaves the medical institution, the information is transferred from the appropriate database to OnGuard, which automatically removes all access rights for the cardholder and downloads the required information to the access controllers.
OnGuard’s capacity to utilize the existing infrastructure adds value to the investment by using existing badges, hardware (such as readers or cameras) and bringing a powerful management function without having to replace existing investments.
Health care centers throughout the USA must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which was enacted to establish national standards for the security of electronic health care information. OnGuard proudly provides the necessary security layers and components to help health care facilities comply with those standards.
