Managing parking facilities is a particularly important concern for hospitals in need of reliable solutions to optimise parking availability. Technology is designed to facilitate payment, simplify maintenance, and guarantee system operation while creating a seamless experience for users. With more than 60 years of experience in the supply of integrated solutions for automating residential, public and urban environments, CAME has developed a turnkey solution for hospitals that responds to their management requirements and resolves the issues that most commonly affect them.
One such system is at Rome’s San Pietro, European and Aurelia hospitals. Chosen for its capabilities, CAME acted as the technology partner to create the parking management systems, taking advantage of the know-how of the CAME Parkare brand, which specialises in parking solutions and can offer customised, scalable and highly personalised systems using technology designed to simplify payment transactions and manage routine maintenance to ensure operation of the system over time.
Aurelia and European hospitals needed to reorganise and rationalise their facilities' parking spaces, manage traffic flow, and guarantee services differentiated according to user type. Another key necessity was to make it easier for the medical personnel of both hospitals to access both parking areas using a single card.
Along with improving efficiency, a primary goal for San Pietro Hospital was to create two new additional parking areas – one reserved for employees charged on an access basis and one for the public charging hourly fees.
The standout feature of CAME’s Parkare technology is Lince 6 management software, a cloud-based solution that enables hospitals to manage rates according to vehicle type and allows them to distinguish various user types, reserving different options for visitors, employees, and service workers. In this way, all three hospitals have been able to personalise their rates and manage special fees for specific types of patients or ER users.
All three hospitals now offer medical personnel access to car parks using a practical proximity card that can be easily topped up at the automatic cashier machines. This means hospital employees can access both hospitals' parking areas using a single card. To further simplify things, Aurelia Hospital has also installed a number plate recognition system to enable quick entry and exit for ambulances.
The system also features video camera functions linked to a VoIP video interphone, offering a truly bespoke service.
