Hospitals around the world are currently suffering from acute shortages of vital medical supplies. The other scarce resource is time. Hospital staff, who are pressed for time under normal circumstances, are now working harder than ever as patient numbers swell. Visilion services help alleviate both these problems.
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities often struggle to keep track of the hundreds of people passing through their buildings around the clock. This can lead to losses on many levels, and in the absence of a clear picture of the hospital’s access rights, the culprits are hard to identify.
Intended for users with an active lifestyle, the mSafety wearable device is designed to withstand the toughest conditions. Recently, our experts tested it for adherence to global Sony quality standards. Here we outline a few or the many standard tests conducted on the device.
Read about the pros and cons of connectivity technologies for use in hospital tracking system, and how Sony developers concluded that BLE was the best type of connectivity for their Visilion real-time location system (RTLS) for use in hospitals.
Administrators working in hospitals and other healthcare institutions need to keep track of 100s or in some cases 1000s of people coming and going daily. The sector has an above-average staff turnover and suffers from high levels of ‘insider’ crime – most notably, drug diversion. With the help of Criotive, hospitals can gain full control over who gets access, when and where.
Legacy lock hardware used to be an obstacle for facility management companies, hotel chains and large property owners who wanted to modernise their access management systems. Thanks to the Criotive cloud-based service, that’s all changing. Today, most brands of electronic locks can be integrated with our tech- and vendor-agnostic platform, allowing companies to transition smoothly to IoT.
Studies show that hospital staff spend up to 20% of their working time looking for equipment and people. This negatively impacts hospital efficiency and ultimately, patient care.

Criotive cloud-based access management is changing the way we think about securing people and property. As part of The Telegraph’s ‘Future of Enterprise IoT’ series, London-based Business Reporter interviewed two key members of the Criotive team at Sony.
Cloud-based access management systems are peeling back the limitations of traditional lock technologies and opening up for a new type of access control. Instead of the old go/no go dichotomy, they allow for all the options in between.
The main purpose of the new SafeTrx application with mSafety wearable from Sony is to help locate and rescue water sports enthusiasts who run into trouble at sea. We tested it with groups of professional and amateur volunteers in Norway and The Netherlands to find out just how much salt water and bad weather it can handle.
Companies in the logistics industry struggle with managing cargo and mitigating lost cargo, delays, de-tours, location and general overview and control issues. Today, although many operators have acceptable control on vehicle location and routing, there is still a lot of guesswork when it comes to parcel and package level. This is about to change.
There’s more to Sony than PlayStation, cameras, music and movies!
