Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division and IgeaCare Systems USA Inc. have announced their agreement for the distribution of an integrated telephony-based solution aimed at the health care industry. IgeaCare’s igeacom emergency call (e-call) and nurse call solution is now integrated with Toshiba’s Strata CIX family of IP business telephone systems. The integrated solution is sold through Toshiba’s Authorized Dealer Network nationwide as well as by IgeaCare’s sales team.
The igeacom series of resident and patient units, call cord, hardwired or wireless devices and dome lights work in conjunction to provide total in-room monitoring. Integration with Toshiba’s Strata CIX IP business telephone platform allows for built-in individual call-point escalation with programmable response parameters, call-point priority settings and flexible routing schemes.
Additionally, the igeacom solution allows ease of communication with standard analog, digital and/or IP telephony endpoints. Additional integration capabilities include: HL7 gateway; AD&D; enhanced reporting and recording QOS igeatrak portal; staff and asset tracking; staff assignment management; and monitoring of patient wandering and medical equipment.
“Toshiba’s nationwide network of Authorized Toshiba Dealers specializes in health care vertical markets, bringing the Toshiba-IgeaCare solution to a wide variety of health care facilities, such as hospitals, acute care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, retirement homes, assisted living homes and other types of integrated group living facilities,” added Craig L.
