Healthcare Technology and News: C7 Technologies and Dalcon Partner in Healthcare Technology


In order to make improvements in emergent bedside care of hospitalized patients, C7 Technologies, an affiliate of Vanguard Health Systems, and Dalcon Communication Systems, Inc. have joined hands for the development and promotion of new software.

According to a press release, Continuum provides nurses and bedside care providers with near real-time information at their fingertips to track care required against care received for each patient. The system will be integrated with a wide variety of hospital based information systems, and deliver both near real-time status and progressively intensive alerts to nursing staff if care falls outside of established guidelines and pathways.

C7 Technologies has developed Continuum to help synthesize the fragmented information clinicians must deal with every day. It was used by Vanguard Hospitals nationwide for almost two years. 

While Continuum tries to provide timely, accurate information at the point of care, Dalcon Communication Systems is a developer and distributor of health care management solutions like Dalcon Communications Manager and Dalcon Alert, providing advanced, in-room monitoring and nurse communication systems to improve patient safety and quality of care.

Bobby Addison, CEO of C7 Technologies said, “The company was searching for a firm with great vision and a proven track record to help the company to build better information and communication systems at the bedside and Delcon seems to be an ideal partner with impressive record of reliability and a visionary leadership team.”

“In Continuum we have found an innovative approach to synthesizing information so doctors and nurses can see the big picture in one place," said David Condra, CEO of Dalcon Communication Systems.

C7 and Dalcon will collaborate in on-going design development of the product and customized applications. Under terms of the agreement, C7 will license Continuum to Dalcon and Dalcon will have rights to market and distribute Continuumworldwide.
