CriticalArc and Gozio Health partner to enhance hospital security
Nearly 75 per cent of workplace assaults occur in a healthcare setting, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics
Gozio Health announced a partnership that enables hospitals and health systems to enhance security and safety by adding CriticalArc’s SafeZone to Gozio’s location based services platform.
Nearly 75 per cent of workplace assaults occur in a healthcare setting, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. CriticalArc’s SafeZone utilizes Gozio’s Bluetooth infrastructure to enable healthcare staff to call for emergency help or routine assistance by using either their smart phones or a wearable alarm.
According to a statement, the organization’s security dispatchers will be able to pinpoint the precise locations of any person calling for help, and the locations of the nearest responders, making it easy for them to coordinate a response.
“By adding CriticalArc’s safety solution to Gozio’s wayfinding infrastructure, hospitals and health systems can confidently prioritize staff safety and more efficiently respond to workplace violence incidents,” said Glenn Farrant, CEO and co-founder of CriticalArc in a prepared statement. “Increasing healthcare worker safety enables staff satisfaction, reduces turnover and ultimately improves patient outcomes.”
“For the hospitals and health systems we work with the safety of staff is a top priority – even more so with the challenges of delivering care during a pandemic,” said Joshua Titus, CEO and founder of Gozio Health. “With the ‘safety everywhere’ protection that this partnership offers, healthcare workers can better focus on what they do best—provide care to their patients.”
