IgeaCare System Inc. and Panasonic announces interoperability between Panasonic PBX systems and IgeaCare's line powered telephony base e-call and nurse call solution



    TORONTO, March 30 /CNW/ - IgeaCare Systems Inc. and Panasonic today
announced the completion of testing and interoperability for the world's first
line powered telephony based e-call and nurse call solution with the Panasonic
KX-TDA family of PBX products,
    The igeacom(R) series of resident and patient units, call cord, hardwired
or wireless pull cords, and dome lights work together to provide total in room
monitoring. Panasonic brings these feature rich platforms to unify all
communication needs for healthcare facilities. The igeacom(R) patient and
resident units, once connected to Panasonic's communication solutions, will
provide traditional nurse call features and bring state of the art telephony
functionality and ease of use to the healthcare industry.
    The IgeaCare solution powered by Panasonic's PBX systems provides
unprecedented reliability. The requirements of each individual facility will
determine the scalability and scope of the total solution. Patient/resident
and administrative telephone services and emergency event notification can
coexist on a unified platform and keep everyone within a facility connected at
all times. Furthermore the IgeaCare/ Panasonic solution allows facilities to
reuse existing infrastructure and reduces the cost of deploying an e-call
solution.
    In addition, the joint solution allows ease of communication with
standard analog, digital and or IP telephony desk sets and the Panasonic
Wireless Handsets. It provides intuitive operation and eliminates the need for
specialized training. The system provides real-time event notification and
acknowledgement on any visual display. The solution can also allow for
priority audible tone, automated speech notification and transmission of
clinical information.
    "The unification of Panasonic's platform with our unique product line
enables healthcare facilities to deploy comprehensive emergency response and
nurse call solutions using current infrastructure. We are proud to bring a
cost effective alternative that allows customers to finally migrate from
traditional intercom systems to IP and telephony based technology." says
Martin Beauclair Vice President of sales at IgeaCare Systems Inc.
    "The IgeaCare healthcare system and Panasonic PBX solution are an
excellent combination for any facility wanting to become more efficient in
managing staff and providing for their residents. The wireless handsets on the
Panasonic KXTDA systems allow caregivers to be notified immediately of any
call for assistance and establish instant 2-way communications with the
patient" says Brian Cox Marketing Manager for PBX Products with Panasonic
Canada Inc.
