Orlando, FL – HIMSS 2019 – February 13, 2018 - Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA), a leading provider of communications solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that CHRISTUS Health has implemented Avaya IX Contact Center solutions to help digitally transform their business and provide enhanced patient experiences.
CHRISTUS Health is an international Catholic, faith-based, not-for-profit health system with more than 600 centers, including community hospitals, walk-in clinics and health ministries across the United States and Latin America, and has been an Avaya customer for more than twenty years. With its recent partnerships with Trinity Mother Frances and Good Shepherd Health Systems, they were facing multiple challenges integrating these new facilities while still delivering a differentiated and enhanced healthcare experience.
In April 2017, CHRISTUS Health turned to Avaya to help craft a long-term digital transformation plan to streamline and harmonize their care team and staff’s ability to engage and communicate with patients to optimize their experiences. The company’s existing mix of legacy Mitel, ShoreTel, and Cisco systems was creating a logistically impractical and inefficient environment that was costly to maintain. CHRISTUS Health chose an Avaya communications platform to begin migrating and consolidating their extensive network to Avaya’s IX Digital Contact Center solutions, with the full implementation to be completed in 2020.
“CHRISTUS Health strives to provide innovative health and wellness solutions that improve the lives of individuals and communities,” said Lynn Gibson, CHRISTUS Health VP & CTO. “We partnered with Avaya based on experience and flexibility proven by our two-decade long partnership. We can have peace of mind with Avaya’s advanced solutions that allow us to improve efficiency, increase revenue, and enhance both our Associate and patient experiences, all while allowing us to remain a leader in the ever-changing healthcare landscape.”
“An open, flexible communications solution with omnichannel, automation and analytics is critically important to the successful digital transformation of healthcare systems,” said Tara Mahoney, Senior Director, Global Healthcare Practice Leader, Avaya. “Avaya and CHRISTUS Health, together, developed an innovative plan to help transform patient and care team experience, leveraging communications solutions to increase efficiency and drive growth.”
