Help protect your care team members with Collective’s security and safety events notifications
A significant indicator of a patient’s risk for violence is a history of violence. As soon as a patient with a historical event at any facility on Collective’s nationwide network registers, alerts are immediately sent to providers and security staff, empowering teams to realign resources and respond—saving time, money, and preventing injury. Types of security events captured by Collective include:
Collective security and safety events provides actionable data for a safer workplace
Easily identify patients who are prone to be security or safety concerns by gaining knowledge of past actions across the Collective network.
Verify that new workflows and preventive actions are successfully preventing harm by measuring instances of dangerous behaviors before and after.
As information is gathered and compared, workflows and processes can be continually refined as instances of harm are reduced and eventually eliminated.
