As pandemic trends continue, workplace violence continues to rise. Rob Leiponis, CEO and President of Parabit Systems, and healthcare industry professionals Steven Biscotti and Kevin Whaley sat down with host Gabrielle Bejarano to discuss the unique and difficult challenge facing the healthcare industry. and manage health care safety.
“Health care security is unlike any type of security in that you’re in an environment where people come here not because you’re having a good day,” noted Kevin Whaley, director of security and Security at George Washington University Hospital. Steven Biscotti, director of safety and security at Mt. Sinai South Nassau explained, “It could be interchangeable, visitor management and workplace violence.
When Whaley was traveling through an airport, an idea for visitor management was born seeing the easy management of kiosks, but he needed to find a technology partner who could change the previous manual process to digital, that’s when Parabit intervened.
“We are able to actually verify a visitor to the patient through the HL7 integration – this system integration between Parabit and our SMS software – so that in real time when a patient walks in and checks into the kiosk or at the workstation you type in the visitor, the patient’s name and it checks A) is the patient in the hospital, B) can they have a visitor? said Whaley, explaining that the software knows and can manage the number of visitors allowed per patient per day.
This innovative security solution that Mt. Sinai has also implemented to protect its workers and patients, Biscotti pointed out, “Parabit systems require either a New York State license or a passport – it captures the photo , it also takes a picture We were able to get the personal information of the individual and we store it on our network, and we have a network that can store infinitely.
