NetFoIP enables hospitals to take advantage of the cost and reliability benefits of virtualization and voice over IP (VoIP)
Natick, MA – March 4, 2014 – Interbit Data, a leading provider of software and services connecting people with information for more efficient healthcare, today announced NetFoIP, a new product that provides completely virtualized faxing for NetDelivery and NetFax, its healthcare report distribution solutions. By virtualizing the NetDelivery and NetFax servers, NetFoIP enables hospitals to improve operational efficiency, remove hardware constraints, and create automatic fail-over configurations for enhanced reliability.
NetFoIP provides software-enabled fax over IP (FoIP) without requiring an existing voice over IP (VoIP) network or an extensive and costly modification to the existing phone system. Interbit Data uses a VoIP stack that is compatible with generic session initiation protocol (SIP) and provides the ability to connect directly to low cost SIP providers in the U.S. and Canada.
NetFoIP is also fully digital and allows hospitals to configure inbound faxing rules utilizing direct inward dialing (DID) technology, enabling both inbound and outbound fax routing. Hospitals can remove or consolidate fax machines and modems, thereby reducing their equipment, maintenance and operating costs, and eliminating any hardware failures.
“Healthcare organizations that are dealing with increasing patient loads and the task of meeting government and industry requirements are always seeking to reduce costs and simplify management,” said Ken Hoffman, president of Interbit Data. “By virtualizing information distribution with digital fax communications, we are helping them to achieve those goals. In addition, NetFoIP’s ‘soft migration’ technology allows healthcare organizations to avoid sending faxes over an aging Telco infrastructure, regardless of whether or not they have an existing VoIP network.”
With NetFoIP’s optional Inbound Fax Client, hospitals will be able to manage all their incoming faxes in Microsoft Windows directories. The Inbound Fax Client also enables them to view, move, and/or categorize received faxes; split multipage faxes; search and retrieve faxes; utilize Windows directory storage and security; obtain an audit trail of all activities; and deploy as needed (with a site license).
