In order to have the best patient outcomes and also maintain compliance with various healthcare mandates, medical facilities must maintain high quality standards. With the passing of Public Act 100-1051 (the Healthcare Violence Protection Act) in January 2019, facilities throughout Illinois have an additional duty of care to ensure the safety of employees, patients, and other facility occupants from violence by introducing a workplace violence prevention program.
In-telligent can help. In-telligent’s patented technology helps keep facilities compliant with the Healthcare Violence Prevention Act by providing quick notification of dangerous situations anywhere within the facility. In an urgent situation that puts the workplace at risk, such as an active shooter, every second counts and occupants need to be made aware of what’s going on as quickly as possible and given direction on what to do.
