Hospital & Healthcare Video Analytics

Deliver outstanding patient care
and more services.

Do more with your resources

Create a better, safer, more efficient environment for patients and staff


Healthcare facilities are always attempting to provide better care and stretch budgets further – from public and private hospitals, to ambulatory surgery and residential care centers. Harness video analytics to automatically monitor patients and trigger real-time responses to falls, distress and hazards. Analyze facility usage and demand on staff over time to optimize rostering, building layouts, equipment purchasing and maintenance, as well as the availability of treatment and consultative services.

Search and review post–incident footage across multiple cameras, locations and streams to boost security and improve COVID practices that keep patients safe and staff available to work. Integrate video-generated insights with other data sources to reveal new opportunities to streamline operations and improve patient care.

Improve Patient Care

Provide excellent care to more patients by analyzing video-based data over time: Use foot traffic analysis and heat mapping to optimize building layouts, treatment workflows and ensure emergency pathways remain clear. Use motion detection, posture and facial analysis to continuously monitor the movements and actions of high-risk patients – from those receiving intensive care, to those undergoing psychological treatment – for signs of distress. Apply exception analysis to surveillance video to ensure medical and operational staff adhere to protocols that impact patient health – such as hand washing and cleaning standards. Trigger notifications when predetermined thresholds are met, hazards or dangerous actions are detected. Enable staff to respond in real-time to falls, spils and patient emergencies.

Enhance COVID Safety

Hospitals and healthcare services will have to manage COVID as part of day-to-day operations for years to come. Detect and act on non-compliance and make data-based decisions that reduce the risk of infection for staff, patients and visitors. Monitor and enforce social distancing, better contact tracing and correct PPE usage to keep staff working and COVID-free patients healthy. Use people counting, density and flow analysis to prevent overcrowding and reduce unnecessary person-to-person contact.

Integrated Insights

We live in an IoT world. So connect the dots and facilitate superior planning and oversight with video analytics: Combine different video feeds, and even integrate AI-enabled video data with third-party information sources, to identify new insights, patterns and trends. Directly pipe video-generated data into third-party processes and operational apps too, including wearable Personal Emergency Response Systems (to keep patients safer) and telemedicine technologies (to enable better remote monitoring of patients). Even integrate video-generated patient data – such as irritable behavior and disrupted sleep patterns – into specific diagnoses and proposed treatment plans.

Bolster Safety & Surveillance

Automatically monitor surveillance footage for objects or actions that warrant attention. Trigger real-time responses to security threats, emergencies, suspicious or aggressive behavior. Instantly detect and empower security to react to abandoned objects, loitering and staff abuse (70% of emergency nurses say they’ve been assaulted at work). Or, maintain access control over restricted areas with staff facial analysis and intrusion detection. Also analyze incidents after-the-fact to assist post-event investigations, such as on-premise confrontations and assaults, gift shop robbery, or stolen medical supplies. Search and pinpoint objects and actions-of-interest throughout your video library – from vehicles of a certain make or number plate, people with particular attributes (gender, t-shirt color, etc), to weapons and unexpected motions (running, punching, etc). Even assess aggregated incidents over time to unearth and act on interrelationships and trends (such as substantiating malpractice claims).

Do More With What You Have

Optimize the resources at your disposal by assessing incidents and actions over time. Armed with these aggregated insights, operations teams and management can make better decisions about facility upgrades, staffing, maintenance programs and more. Match staffing levels with predicated demand based on trends by time, day or season. Leverage video analytics insights to reduce build-up in waiting rooms, keep bathrooms clean, minimize ambulance turnaround times and ‘off-stretcher’ delays. Streamline operations and logistics to run sustainable practices and help more patients – without compromising the quality of care. Optimize the utilization of patient equipment (beds, wheelchairs and IV walkers), assessment and treatment facilities (diagnostic machines, consult and operating rooms) as well as on-site amenities (car parks, pharmacies and caffeteriers). Reduce the need for manned security patrols and monitor equipment usage to help schedule predictive maintenance, which avoids costly accidents and capacity-reducing breakdowns.
