Colorado hospital extends communications deal with NEC
NEC of America has extended the communications infrastructure built on its Univerge communications servers at University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) by implementing the Cisco Nurse Connect application at UCH.

Irving, Texas-based NEC said its deployment of unified communications is designed to allow nurses and other clinical staff to reduce human latency and improve response times through the deployment of routing tools and mobility enabled solutions on top of UCH’s existing communications infrastructure.

“Instead of being at the nurses’ station, our caregivers are on their preferred devices, in-building wireless IP phones, responding to a patient need, even as they are on the way to the patient’s room,” said Joe Bajek, chief technology officer at UCH.
