VoIP Based Communications Platform Comes with SIP Wireless Phones

Healthcare communications provider Jeron Electronic Systems, Inc. and SIP software developer Brekeke Software have inked a partnership to bring VoIP-based communications with SIP wireless telephony systems to acute care facilities. As a result, the two will integrate Jeron’s Provider 790 nurse call system to Brekeke’s SIP server.

According to Jeron Electronic Systems, adding SIP wireless phone integration to Provider 790's VoIP-based communications platform untethers staff from the nursing stations and delivers mission-critical nurse call alerting and communication to mobile caregivers.

Key functionalities of the Provider 790 SIP wireless phone integration include team nursing assignments and rollover, facility-wide alerting and mobile communication, patient call information, fast, one-touch answering, no blocked calls (multiple voice paths on the nurse call and multiple SIP trunk connections ensures that caregivers will always be connected to their patients when pressing "Talk" on a ringing phone), no special codes to remember and remote service requirement setting.

Using Brekeke SIP Server with Provider 790 makes integrations simpler, more flexible and lowers costs.    

“Reliable wireless communication is a critical tool in providing timely response to patient demands in the hospital environment,” said Myles Cochran, Jeron's director of marketing. “There is a tremendous amount of pressure to maintain and improve the level of patient care. A networked solution for wireless phones increases the efficiency of staff by keeping mobile caregivers in direct communication with their patients.”

Likewise, Brekeke Software’s chief technology officer Shinichi Mitsumata, commented that "in an environment where patients' lives are at stake, Brekeke SIP Server adds value as a component in Jeron's high-performance Provider 790 nurse call platform. Jeron with our SIP server is a perfect solution for acute care facilities that need advanced and reliable technology in a simple package."

Provider 790 is available through factory-trained and certified Jeron distributors across North America who provide comprehensive, one-stop local services – consultation, integration and support – to Jeron healthcare customers.
