AI-Powered Solution Used at Philadelphia’s Temple University Hospital
WALTHAM, Mass. – (June 21, 2023) – Evolv Technology (NASDAQ: EVLV), the leader in AI-based weapons detection security screening, today announced its collaboration with Temple Health. Temple is using Evolv’s state-of-the-art Evolv Express® screening solution at the entrances to Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia.
Evolv Express uses powerful sensor technology with artificial intelligence (AI) to provide safer, more accurate threat detection at unprecedented volume and speed. Hospitals around the country have experienced an increase in violence towards staff. Temple uses Evolv Express systems to screen visitors at four of its entrances.
“The driving factor for us to use Evolv was to increase safety and security for our patients, visitors, and staff,” said Brian Wade, Temple University Health System’s Director of Environment of Care, Emergency Management, and Security. “We know it is working because the reaction from our staff has been extremely positive.”
Evolv Express allows people to walk right through the screening system without having to open bags or empty pockets, preventing lines and keeping entry smooth at places where speed matters, such as a hospital. The technology can tell the difference between threats and the everyday metal items people carry with them.
“Evolv is proud to partner with Temple Health and to be a part of the security solution at Temple University Hospital,” said Jason Grellner, vice president of healthcare for Evolv Technology. “We share a mission in working to create a safer environment for patients, caretakers and their loved ones, as they work and heal.”
Temple Health joins a growing number of healthcare organizations across the country using Evolv. Temple University Hospital is the latest Philadelphia facility working to keep people safe by using Evolv, including Citizens Bank Park, where Evolv is the Preferred Fan Screening Provider of Major League Baseball’s Philadelphia Phillies.
