Introduction to Hospital Visitor Management System
Visitor Management System (VMS) is the process of tracking every person who enters the premises of a company, building or an office. A visitor may be a customer, delivery person, job applicant or anyone else. Basically, a person who is not a regular full-time employee is a visitor. VMS actively tracks the entry of any person into a public building or residence. It is widely used in various areas such as hospitals, corporate buildings, hotels, government buildings and schools among others. They are available with features such as auto identification of repeated visitors, Photo ID or fingerprint scanning. It generates access cards to visitors with authorized access to facilities on the type of visitor, eliminates human errors and ensures high security and performance of the premise.
Healthcare facilities and hospitals need to establish such systems for visitors, vendors, contractors entering the premises. Hospitals normally have a high volume of visitors and they need a proper visitor system to accommodate rapid visitor check-ins.
Market Size and Forecast
Complexity and size of security and operational challenges faced by hospitals makes it vital that they must have efficient and effective operations management system in place. Healthcare facilities are facing growing number of security threats such as patient record privacy breaches and workplace violence. In order to maintain security, the facilities must manage people entering the building. The solution is visitor management systems in hospitals in order to ensure security in the facilities of the hospital as well as efficient management of visitors. By employing the latest innovative technologies, VMS is becoming more progressive and customized. The replacement of traditional registration methods such as paper registers or semi-automated systems with digital visitor management systems to ensure ease of work and enhancing security at the premises is estimated to drive the growth of the market. Through VMS, hospitals can ensure authentication of its visitors and track visitor details and movements in the premises as well. Moreover, all the records can be accessible under single dashboard in real-time that can help hospitals to prevent illegal activities on the premises.
The global hospital visitor management market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 7.6% over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027. The market is segmented by deployment type & hospital size. The market is segmented by deployment type into on-premise VMS and cloud based VMS, out of which, the cloud based VMS segment is anticipated to have leading shares on account of easy accessibility and compatibility from any place or area around the globe as compared to on-premise based VMS. The cloud based system is compatible with any software or system, whereas, on-premise may not offer this advantage. Moreover, cloud based system is a growing segment and is gaining importance in the IT sector, which is further raising its demand in numerous other sectors.

The market is further segmented by hospital size into small, medium and large hospitals, out of which, large hospital segment is anticipated to have leading shares on account of the security issues becoming more critical in the large hospitals as they host a large number of visitors everyday as compared to other segments.
New technological advancements have been made in the hospital visitor management system market. Instead of making the visitors wear the tags and re-issuing the tags with expiration of validity, visitor management app generates auto generated passes with validity periods for different visitors such as new visitors, patient visitor, patient attendants, staff etc. This makes the work easier and increases the efficiency of the VMS in the hospitals.
Need For Paperless Administration
The main factor driving the growth of the VMS is the need for paperless management in various organizations, especially hospitals where large number of people visit on a daily basis. Paper work would take much time and will lead to difficulty in maintaining data, whereas, software usage would lead to ease in maintaining records and retaining them when in need. Moreover, strict regulations and policies by different associations and government bodies in maintaining records of the visitors and regulating security is driving the growth of the hospital visitor management market.
There is an increase in awareness regarding the safety at the workplace and hospitals owing to the large number of visitors and conventional methods of maintaining records which may hamper the safety of the patients and employees inside the hospital. The demand for these systems is growing at various hospitals, ultimately driving the growth of the market.
The high cost of installation and maintenance of VMS might hinder the growth of the hospital visitor management market during the forecast period.
