Milestone to offer XProtect for healthcare

Nov. 1, 2022
Vertical-specific VMS version scheduled for release in 2023

Milestone Systems says it plans to bring "proven industry-specific video solutions" to healthcare and hospitality over time "based on a deeper understanding of the customers’ objectives, needs and challenges within specific industries.

The company said its XProtect open platform video management system (VMS) "is the perfect tool for bringing together the best-in-class video and data integrations, video analytics, and cloud solutions to address critical industry needs.

"Today, customers are looking for new ways to use video technology beyond safety and security. They are realizing that there is a wealth of data that can be unlocked and harnessed to deliver additional value. In the healthcare industry, Milestone Systems embarks on a strategy that will ultimately result in solutions that enable video technology to be a value-driver for specific industries."

“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 data-driven video technology will be at the core of a new healthcare offering scheduled for release in 2023. The new healthcare solution will ensure patient and employee safety while protecting assets and property, with focused capabilities that meet healthcare’s unique compliance requirements and work environments.

Milestone’s new healthcare offering intends to:

  • Improve patient care, outcome, and experience
  • Maximize staff efficiency and ease hospital resource pains
  • Expand situational awareness without additional staffing

"Milestone is in a perfect position" to support the challenges of the healthcare industry, the company said, as its XProtect open platform video management system currently supports more than 11,000 different security devices from more than 500 manufacturers. In addition, the company said its 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 much more.
