Healthcare institutions are facing unprecedented security threats today. To address this crisis, Clete Bordeaux, Director of Healthcare Business Development for HID recently sat down with Telgian Engineering Vice President, Security Risk Consulting Lauris V. Freidenfelds on the Workforce Identity and Access Management Podcast to discuss enhancing security in hospitals by managing visitor traffic.
“Traditionally, healthcare leaders have wanted an open and inviting environment for patients and their families. However, in the current climate, the safety of staff and patients alike must take precedence.” says Freidenfelds. “Establishing an effective visitor management system takes a good amount of planning, but planning eliminates many implementation problems.”
