IgeaCare Systems reportedly has launched its Apolo Dynamic Server “push” technology on Avaya’s IP Browser phones – an application that complies with all of Avaya’s (News - Alert) IP Office and Communication Manager Platforms.
Although the market for patient care is growing fast, many hospitals, assisted living, independent living and acute care facilities are handicapped by economical challenges such as limited staff and budgets. So, adding the capability to “push” rich content to Avaya and other IP end-points enables the service providers to deliver and sell economical end-to-end communication solutions in the healthcare industry.
The apoloDS event notification engine is a middleware server that improves communications between patient and nurse; caregiver and resident; and doctors and administrators. It combines IgeaCare’s telephony-based nurse-call devices with Avaya’s platforms and notification endpoints such as: PDAs and the most popular wireless phones.
“Turning Avaya’s IP Browser phone into an application enabled device to deliver “rich content” to the healthcare provider or nurse, such as patient affliction, medication and dosages; or, emergency and business continuity instructions for acute, long-term and assisted living facilities, was the next logical step in the evolution of our apoloDS technology,” says Paul Perryman, chief technical officer of IgeaCare.
IgeaCare Systems (News - Alert) is now eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, New Jersey, as the company is a Gold Member of the Avaya DevConnect (News - Alert) Program. A team of Avaya engineers develops a complete test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant and make sure that the companies can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network.
Recently, the company joined Toshiba America Information Systems Inc.’s Telecommunication Systems Division to distribute an integrated telephony-based solution in the healthcare industry. According to the agreement, IgeaCare’s igeacom “emergency call and nurse call solution is integrated with Toshiba’s (News - Alert) Strata CIX” family of IP business telephone systems. The solution will be sold through Toshiba’s Authorized Dealer Network nationwide as well as by IgeaCare’s sales team.
