Release:23 Feb 2012
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – GlobalMed, an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of telemedicine systems, today announced it has been selected by Avaya, a global provider of business collaboration systems, software and services, for membership as a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect program.
GlobalMed is a real-time healthcare delivery system company that deploys state-of-the-art medical data and images to the cloud, providing access anywhere. GlobalMed has developed hardware, software and service solutions to enable leading healthcare professionals to be more effective in providing patient care, and more productive and efficient in managing patient information.
As a DevConnect Technology Partner, GlobalMed expects to deliver proven interoperability of their solutions with Avaya’s unified communications, collaboration and video portfolio, so that companies can provide access to healthcare with telemedicine. Telemedicine solutions help patients access healthcare professionals form their locations which can lead to better patient satisfaction, outcomes and lower costs. This includes easier access to specialists that are often not available to patients of smaller healthcare facilities or rural locations.
The Avaya DevConnect program promotes the development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of innovative third-party solutions that are compatible with standards-based Avaya solutions. Member organizations have expertise in a broad range of capabilities – spanning collaboration, management, analytics, reporting and communications-enabled business process applications – helping joint customers extend the value of their collaboration and contact center investments and accelerate the speed at which their organization delivers true value to the bottom line.
“GlobalMed’s mission is to provide the platforms and tools that can make healthcare accessible anywhere, despite geographic barriers and the disproportionate number of specialists in underserved rural areas,” said Joel E. Barthelemy, Managing Director of GlobalMed. “As part of Avaya’s developer community, we look forward to working with Avaya’s secure and reliable network to achieve this goal.”
The Avaya DevConnect program currently includes thousands of software and hardware developer companies, integrators, service providers and customers. Members have created a broad array of innovative solutions tested for Avaya compliance, including natural language speech recognition applications, mobile and emergency notification services, specialized computer telephony integration and reporting capabilities, and applications tailored for specific vertical industries.
Through the DevConnect program, Avaya provides companies with a wide range of technical education, access and support for many Avaya platforms and interfaces, often at no cost to Registered members. Technology Partners receive additional benefits in terms of in-depth, joint compliance testing activities and co-marketing support, based on their alignment with Avaya’s strategy and value offered to Avaya customers. DevConnect Technology Partners like GlobalMed must meet rigorous criteria for customer satisfaction, product support, business operations, marketing and sales.
“Avaya welcomes GlobalMed as a new Technology Partner in our DevConnect Program,” said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations, Avaya. “GlobalMed not only brings its proven telemedicine solutions to our community, but also the promise of new and exciting innovations aimed at improving healthcare worldwide.”
