ADTRAN Connects Patients and Providers for Pro-Care Home Health

Home health care provider improves office efficiency and reduces communication costs by half with the NetVanta 7100

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 31, 2012-- ADTRAN®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN, news, filings), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that Pro-Care Home Health has deployed ADTRAN’s NetVanta® 7100 unified communications platform across its office locations in nine West Central Kentucky counties. Looking for the ability to create a centralized phone system for its five Pro-Care Home Health offices and the offices of its sister company, King Health Care, the company turned to ADTRAN for its ability to provide multiple data and voice functions all from an affordable single platform. Using the NetVanta 7100, the company is more efficient in its customer scheduling and has reduced interoffice communication costs by fifty percent.

Pro-Care Home Health needed a new communication system that gave them the ability to perform centralized scheduling from one main call intake location. The NetVanta 7100 supports a multi-site SIP network that allows Pro-Care Home Health to link remote offices together and provide direct dial access between their sites. The NetVanta 7100 also enables employees to transfer their phone number to whatever remote location they are working at for the day making it easier for customers to reach their health care provider.

“During our evaluation process for a new phone system, we looked at several products and ADTRAN’s NetVanta 7100 not only provided all the features we needed, but was also a very cost-effective solution,” said Kevin Bailey, IT Manager for Pro-Care Home Health. “I have used ADTRAN products before so I know the quality and reliability is high and that my network won’t go down.”

The NetVanta 7100 offers outstanding business value and simplifies VoIP communications for small to medium businesses. ADTRAN has integrated into the NetVanta 7100 all the voice and data networking functions into a single platform and is the ideal solution for businesses that have up to 100 stations at each location. The web-based administration tools also enables Pro-Care Home Health’s IT department to quickly and easily perform administrative tasks and customize the platform as the business grows and expands.

“Health care businesses are constantly looking for ways to make it easier for patients to schedule their appointments and stay in touch with their health care providers. The NetVanta 7100 unified communications platform has enabled Pro-Care Home Health to do just that,” said Chris Thompson, Senior Product Manager for ADTRAN’s Enterprise Networks Division. “ADTRAN helps small and medium sized businesses simplify the migration to VoIP with a single platform that incorporates all of their communication needs and is completely customizable to best serve their customer base. Whether the need is replacing an old system or expanding to a new location, businesses will quickly see a return on their investment and lower their overall cost of ownership.”
