Milestone Systems announced it is developing a new healthcare offering scheduled for release in 2023. The company is focusing on a strategy to bring proven industry-specific video solutions to healthcare and hospitality over time, leveraging its XProtect open platform video management system (VMS) to bring together video and data integrations, video analytics and cloud solutions to address critical industry needs.
Milestone’s data-driven video technology will be at the core of the new offering, which will ensure patient and employee safety while protecting assets and property, with focused capabilities that meet healthcare’s unique compliance requirements and work environments.
“Delivering true customer value and business outcomes requires a strong customer-centric approach. Dedicated interactions with customers within these specific industries help us build industry-specific video technology solutions that go well beyond security,” said Thomas Jensen, CEO, Milestone Systems. “Milestone has the largest ecosystem of development and technology partners within and beyond the security industry, and we are uniquely positioned to work with market leaders to create solutions that address unique safety and operational needs for specific industries.”
In 2022, the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK reported a shortage of 90,000 full-time staffers. By 2030, the U.S. will experience a shortfall of more than half a million nurses. Faced with near overwhelming workloads and countless management and operational details, hospitals and healthcare facilities need to explore new technologies to optimize all resources at their disposal.
Milestone’s new healthcare offering is designed to improve patient care, outcome and experience; maximize staff efficiency and ease hospital resource pains; and expand situational awareness without additional staffing.
Milestone’s XProtect open platform video management system currently supports more than 11,000 different security devices from more than 500 manufacturers. In addition, the company’s ecosystem of technology partners includes providers of network video cameras, cloud services, storage equipment, access control, alarm and detection systems, video analytics, GPS technology, laser scanners, emergency call boxes, and more.
