Date:1/5/2009

Desktop Alert, a Premier Net-Centric Alert and Notification Technology Company today announces the award of a network IP-Based alerting system acquisition supporting Berkshire Medical Center.

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) December 15, 2008 -- Desktop Alert, Inc., a Premier Net-Centric Alert and Notification Technology Company, today announces the award of a network IP-Based alerting system acquisition supporting Berkshire Medical Center. Desktop Alert can deliver emergency alerts, code alerts, sonograms, patient charts, x-rays and live streaming video from operating rooms to workstation monitors and digital signage; it also plays audio and video files, shows images, collects data/input from recipients and more.

Berkshire Medical Center, a nationally award-winning community hospital and a Planetree affiliate dedicated to patient-centered care, is a not-for-profit medical center, licensed for 302 beds and fully accredited by Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. As a medical center affiliated with Berkshire Health Systems, Berkshire Medical Center and its Hillcrest Campus serve all residents of Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and communities in adjacent eastern New York, northwest Connecticut and southwest Vermont.

The Desktop Alert Platform is much more than a mass notification platform, because it empowers the user to have "presence management" as a significant capability within the system. As part of the presence management capabilities of the program, the Desktop Alert Platform lets the user know who is online, who has received the alert, who has clicked on hyperlinks and other capabilities at this level.

This communication augmentation delivers highly valuable actionable intelligence and revolutionizes the way communications are utilized on a day-in day-out basis across the entire enterprise worldwide. Alerts and information are also available for digital signage display on ceiling and wall mounted LCD, plasma monitors and other digital signage devices.

Desktop Alert securely extends alerting to personal computers outside the network by the utilization of Protexx 256 Bit AES digital encryption certificates which protects data in motion thus providing the ability to instantly allow secure external connectivity for remote employees The Protexx remote VPN protects against hacking and identity theft, secures Wi-Fi Hotspot connections and safeguards IP addresses from theft.

"Secure emergency response capability is critical in hospitals worldwide daily. Desktop Alert enables rapid communication to nurses, doctors and all personnel by leveraging existing computer infrastructure and networks across the enterprise. The selection by Berkshire Medical Center is an honor for our company. During the last few years hospitals worldwide have made numerous inquiries to our sales department for mass notification. While not mandated to implement mass notification, medical institutions have proven they are aware of the numerous benefits of mass notification. The gestation of such systems within the medical industry shows a genuine concern for patient and employee safety and awareness. Desktop Alert will continue to work hard to improve upon solutions highly tailored towards the medical industry's specific needs," said Howard Ryan, CEO Desktop Alert Inc.
