“We went from having an outdated VMS, ineffective access control and insufficient alarm capability to the exact opposite. It’s a huge game-changer for us.”
Todd Miller, Regional Director of Security at SSM Health
SSM Health deploys Safe Hospitals ecosystem

Challenge: Data silos led to inefficient security
Without an integrated ecosystem that enabled the sharing of data across teams and systems such as access control, video security and real-time communications, the security team lacked the technology for effective and proactive situational awareness and relied on its systems for limited investigative activity. This meant it was constantly in a reactive mode when an event occurred, making it much more difficult to remediate security situations and having to lockdown Emergency Departments at times.
Solution: The Safe Hospitals technology ecosystem
SSM Health has completely reimagined how it secures its campus and facilities with a powerful ecosystem of integrated technologies.
Advanced video analytics
AI-powered video analytics help the security team easily locate people of interest or missing individuals across the entire SSM Health campus.
Efficient use of resources
Instead of deploying staff to patrol the entire campus, the team is aided by analytics, access control and radio integration to focus efforts where it’s needed most.
It’s all in the details
SSM Health’s Avigilon video security deters threats and enhances overall situational awareness across all campus facilities with specialized cameras.
Result: Integrated technology for better outcomes
By integrating once-disparate pieces of security and communications technology into a seamless integrated ecosystem, SSM Health doesn’t just receive better security, they can generate better outcomes: enhanced clinical care, higher patient satisfaction, more efficient operations and a safer workplace that enhances employee morale and retention.
