For healthcare providers, the care team’s ability to communicate with
patients along their health journey is vital to the mission of
supporting their care plan and reducing readmissions. By connecting
people, resources, data, and solutions, providers can optimize
operations and reduce risk, while increasing operational efficiency and
profitability. A flexible communications solution is critically
important to the successful digital transformation of health care
systems. The top 10 healthcare services companies in the world, and the
top 10 U.S. hospitals all depend on Avaya communications solutions to
enhance patient experience, improve care team effectiveness and
collaboration, and drive increased efficiency.

Avaya and its ecosystem of partners have deep expertise and teams
focused specifically on addressing the unique requirements of delivering
communication solutions to the healthcare industry. Avaya works with
these partners to combine technical, customer engagement and services
resources to provide a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for
healthcare providers addressing patient access and services, virtual
care, telemedicine and care team collaboration to improve productivity,
streamline workflow, improve the quality of care and increase ROI.

“We have 55 remote locations, three different hospitals, and 450
different healthcare providers as part of our network, and our Avaya
communication solutions enable us to provide an optimal combination of
human touch supported by smart automation for improved patient
experience,” said Tim Rosner, Chief Technology Officer, Southcoast
Health. “We’re implementing new technologies in healthcare and place a
lot of value in our long-term partnership with Avaya that enables us to
move forward successfully in this effort.”

According to research firm IDC, today there are more opportunities and
challenges than ever to effectively communicate with patients, starting
with the number of channel choices—phone, web, text, or chat—used to
connect with them. A one-size-fits-all strategy will not work.
Enterprise patient access and services and digital care coordination
solutions must be flexible based on patients’ communication needs and
where they are in their patient journey. These solutions must also
address evolving technology, business, and regulatory requirements
facing healthcare organizations.1

“Our focus is completely, 100 percent on our patients, including our
entire workflow, systems and communications platform,” said Jim
Hennigan, IT Manager, Innova Health Systems. “We are looking at new and
innovative ways to enhance the patient experience and to make healthcare
more accessible to diverse groups like millennials. Avaya omnichannel
solutions enable us to use all channels of communication, from web chat,
video, voice, and telemedicine to provide more effective care in a
proactive, efficient way.”
