Motorola Solutions announced its Safe Hospitals solution, a technology ecosystem that combines video, data, analytics and voice technologies, to help hospitals manage threats and drive operational efficiencies.

With 23 hospitals, nearly 11,000 clinical employees and more than 2 million outpatients seen every year across Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma and Wisconsin, SSM Health has deployed a Safe Hospitals solution from Motorola Solutions to mitigate complex safety and security risks.

“What sets our security solution apart is the simplicity and speed that come from using technologies that work together,” said Todd Miller, SSM Health Regional Director of Security. “We can move quickly from detection to action to mitigate disruptions to our operations and patient care. The benefits of this are felt across the organization – it gives our security officers more confidence, because they have the right resources in place to do their jobs in a truly professional manner, clinical staff feel more comfortable and safe in the workplace, which leads to greater retention and patient care, and we save time and money by deploying hospital resources efficiently.”

The Safe Hospitals solution combines video and analytics, command center software and critical communications solutions to help hospitals detect and analyze events, seamlessly communicate and respond appropriately in any situation.


“Facing complex daily challenges, health care workers can only provide the highest level of care when an environment of safety is certain,” said Sharon Hong, vice-president, enterprise technologies, Motorola Solutions in a statement. “By creating one connected ecosystem of technologies, our Safe Hospitals solution allows for quick and clear detection and analysis of what is happening on hospital premises, bringing the speed and awareness needed to address concerns and resolve incidents appropriately, helping staff get back to what they do best – taking care of their patients.”

The Safe Hospitals solution is available now in North America.
