Summary

Chemnitz Hospital required an IP-based video surveillance system that provided increased safety of the clinic and helped facilitate better patient care.

Challenge

Our certified partner, the VST GmbH from Saalfeld, was entrusted with the design of a digital video system that operated with maximum flexibility. The aim was to bring together the Zschopauer branch of the clinic, with several cameras in different functional areas, into an intelligent, video management system. This included cameras in radiotherapy and in waiting areas with cameras covering entrances. Live video had to be easily available at several operating stations for the purposes of authorizing access to departments from various operating stations spread throughout the hospital.

Solution

To meet the requirements of the clinic, VST GmbH leveraged the power of the Aimetis Symphony video management system (VMS). Through the integration of cameras with standard licenses, a lower cost was found, Aimetis was able to provide a fully functional VMS at a much lower cost than other industry providers.

After taking part in training of the Aimetis Symphony software, the Chemnitz main branch of the hospital quickly realized the benefits and flexibility of the video system used in Zschopau and began the planning of another system for use at Chemnitz Hospital.

In addition, Chemnitz staff now back up multiple cameras to ensure treatment procedures in the X-ray examination room run efficiently. At the same time, nurses never lose track of the crowd in the waiting room. In addition to making work easier for the staff, the new surveillance system has been a major contribution to the high standards already present at Chemnitz Hospital and a future-focused solution is now helping improve safety and service every day.
