Healthcare Technology and News: Next Intelligence Health and Dalcon Communications Join Forces To Provide Advanced Patient Care

Next Intelligence Corporation, one of the leaders in message-based nurse call systems, recently announced a partnership with Dalcon Communication Systems, Inc. for integration, development, and distribution of their products. This new joint offering will include Dalcon's VoIP-based voice talkback to patient rooms, NiQ's CarePlus message-based nurse call system and the Dalcon Alert solution that sends patient care notifications to wireless devices.

In a release, Chris Clabaugh, vice president of business development at NiQ said that "Dalcon is a trusted provider of advanced communication technology and services for the healthcare industry nationwide. The combination of CarePlus advanced message and workflow nurse call systems with Dalcon's world class services and communication technology should prove extremely attractive to acute care and aged care facilities of all sizes. We look forward to partnering with them to deliver our combined solutions."

In a release, John Menees, director of health care at Dalcon said that "Our goal as a company is to enhance patient safety and the quality of care at the moment it's needed. We're constantly looking for solutions that help us meet that important goal. In CarePlus we've discovered innovative technology that surpasses nursecall in the traditional sense, where the hardware is not just used as a box on the wall. Our integrated solutions will immediately empower clinicians to see a bigger, clearer picture of the patient care environment.”

In a related story reported on HealthTechZone, C7 Technologies, an affiliate of Vanguard Health Systems, and Dalcon announced a new partnership for the development and promotion of software to improve safety and quality at the hospital bedside.
