Axis network cameras help with child psychiatry treatment at North Karelia Central Hospital

Effective solution unique in child psychiatry that successfully supports work with patients

“The good results have made other hospitals consider the implementation of similar solutions. A similar system will be delivered to the Pori Central Hospital in the Satakunta Hospital District.” Jyrki Hällström, Hällström Ltd.

Mission

The Child Psychiatry Clinic at North Karelia Central Hospital and Honkalampi Center in Joensuu, Finland, needed a camera and recording system to use videos in child psychiatry research and treatment in a practical and reliable way that was also safe for patients. This material was also intended for the nocturnal care of sleeping difficulties experienced by infants and small children. The clinic workers and data administration experts were looking for a solution with high image quality cameras that clearly display images taken in the dark and which are flexible and easy to use.

Solution

The IT and security consultant company Hällström designed a solution and installed Axis network cameras together with the Milestone XProtect® software. The Axis network cameras met the requirements for high image quality in the dark and for flexibility and ease of use. Image material management can be carried out in a centralized way. The hospital personnel can simultaneously view image material from several cameras and thus see both the actions of the parents and the child’s facial expressions.

Result

The Child Psychiatry Clinic at North Karelia Central Hospital and Honkalampi Center has received an effective solution that is unique in child psychiatry and successfully supports the work with patients. There are a total of eleven fixed and two mobile cameras at the Child Psychiatry Clinic. The solution is a good example of how network cameras can be used for many other applications besides ensuring safety and security. Good experiences with the cameras have made other hospitals consider the implementation of similar solutions.
