Mission

Founded in May 2003 as the first branch of Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital is a leader in healthcare services in Korea with state-of-the-art medical systems. In 2012, just before the launch of the next-generation hospital information system, the hospital introduced a new security system with higher cost effectiveness and management convenience for the new wing, raising the service quality further up.

Solution

Seoul National University Bundang Hospital decided to introduce a new security system for patients and guests. In particular, it urgently needed a new IP system that can cope with problems of the existing analogbased systems being used in the main building. In addition, the hospital management set out to review different network cameras with excellent data compression and image security features. After comparing several solutions on offer, the hospital finally came to a conclusion that Axis network cameras provide the best cost effectiveness with the highest pixel resolution. The reputation of Axis Communications that has had a wealth of experience in different industries all across the world also helped the hospital to make the decision.

Result

After deciding upon Axis network cameras, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital worked closely with Axis partner NOW Inc., to find out possible issues that could arise after installation, including compatibility issues between the existing and new systems. By minimizing risks this way and thus eliminating fears about the new system, the hospital was able to successfully install the IP surveillance system.
