NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 9 Dalcon Communication Systems, Inc. announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation's INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine has named the Dalcon Communications Manager - Healthcare Edition as a recipient of its 2008 Product of the Year Award.
"With hundreds of applications, the judging process was difficult but Dalcon has demonstrated a commitment to quality and the continued development of the IP communications industry and deserves this honor. I look forward to seeing more innovative solutions from them as they continue to contribute to the future of VoIP and IP communications," stated TMC Editorial Director Greg Galitzine.
"We're pleased to be honored by this leading publication in the Internet telephony industry. This is another milestone of our continued journey developing VoIP solutions that are accessible and easy to use," said David Condra, Dalcon's CEO.
Dalcon has integrated its award-winning IP Communications software with other products commonly found in healthcare. Now hospitals can take full advantage of VoIP through the use of a fully integrated, open-standards-based communications system.
Utilizing software running on standard PC servers, and standard IP and analog phones, DCM - Healthcare Edition not only supports functions such as Direct Inward Dial Numbers, Interactive Voice Response, and find-me/follow me to cell phones, it also supports powerful, integrated functions including:
-- Electronic Faxing - eliminate the phone lines, paper, and toner of fax machines while automatically producing electronic documents for electronic medical records systems.
-- Nurse WiFi - these critically important staff members and others can now be reached as easily as if they were sitting at their personal extension phone.
-- Patient Nurse Call Integration - existing nurse call systems can now be integrated with hospital fixed and wireless phone systems to better respond to patient calls.
-- Staff Physician Communications - doctors can now communicate simply by being a part of the hospital system so that, whether they are in their offices or doing rounds, they can reach key nurses and staff, and be reached immediately if needed.
The DCM - Healthcare edition was first installed in Trinity Hospital in Erin, Tennessee. "This is a whole new mindset, like changing from an old IBM mainframe to laptops," says Trinity Hospital's CEO, Yvette Gillespie. "You don't realize what you haven't had until you finally get it! Now that we're using Dalcon, I wish we could have done this years ago."
INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine has been the VoIP Authority since 1998 and offers rich content from solutions-focused editorial content to reviews on products and services from TMC Labs of 225,000 readers.
