ShoreTel Summit powers Callidus Health communications suite

Communication solutions provider ShoreTel´s (NASDAQ: SHOR) Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) architecture Summit is powering Callidus Health´s technology, the company said.

Voice and SMS functionality was integrated into Callidus Health´s two communications solutions -one for patients and one for doctors.

By leveraging the Summit platform, Callidus Health´s CareLINK solution is able to route patient requests to the appropriate doctor based on the patient´s needs. CareLINK eliminates the need for third-party answering services and pagers by alerting the doctor of a new patient request via email, voice or text, allowing for fast physician follow up. CareLINK also uses Summit´s call scheduling functionality to automate voice and SMS appointment reminders for patients. Plus, text-to-speech functionality makes it easy for users to update the appointment reminders without having to record and upload a new message.

As Callidus Health´s solutions have continued to grow and expand, Summit´s developer tools have allowed them to easily make changes in-house to the application code.

As part of ShoreTel´s focus on enabling Summit-based businesses, they have engaged with Callidus Health to help them expand market reach in the healthcare space by introducing them to ShoreTel´s channel partner community through the ShoreTel TechConnect Program and ShoreTel´s online technology marketplace.
