Brooktrout's Fax Products Make Health Care Applications Healthy

2/25/2004 - Brooktrout Technology, Inc., a leading supplier of media processing, network interface, call control and signal processing products will exhibit its award-winning voice and fax platforms that enable health care applications and services at this year’s Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition.

Brooktrout’s intelligent fax products help businesses and institutions comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA-compliant solutions built on Brooktrout’s platforms will keep a patient’s information protected and secure. Brooktrout’s fax boards, running under HIPAA-compliant network fax software, can eliminate the problem of unsecured patient information sitting on fax machines, because faxes can be routed directly to specific computer users’ desktops or third party secured applications, allowing for secure and confidential access to patient information. Health care organizations, service providers and plan administrators can electronically send, receive, archive and manage patient information. For voice applications, Brooktrout’s speech recognition performance allows added security such as speaker authentication for access to protected information.

For health care organizations that need to improve access to patient information, Brooktrout’s voice products can help doctors and other health care professionals access computer-stored patient data from any telephone. In addition, Brooktrout’s voice technology can help organizations reduce the cost of service delivery, for example by creating interactive voice response (IVR) and speech recognition systems that allow prescriptions to be refilled by phone, and by dictation systems that streamline record-keeping.

Several of Brooktrout’s partners will showcase their Brooktrout-enabled voice and fax solutions for the health care industry including, Accpac, Amtelco, Ateb, Biscom, Captaris, J2Global, Lanier and Optio.

At its booth, Brooktrout will display its TR1000TM voice processing platform specifically designed to support a broad array of speech, IVR, messaging, and conferencing applications. The TR1000 includes VoiceXML integration to extend data applications and information to any telephone. Brooktrout will also showcase its TR1034TM intelligent fax platform, offered in a variety of analog, BRI and PRI configurations, for ultimate flexibility, allowing customers to grow into their fax solution and increase the number of ports as their requirements dictate.
