•Franciscan Alliance and Sisters of Charity implement Avaya solutions to evolve and succeed in new era of healthcare
•Avaya to spotlight latest innovations in telemedicine, healthcare mobility and proactive outreach technologies at HIMSS 2013 event, March 3 - 7 (Booth # 6846)
As new workplace demands transform the healthcare industry, more healthcare organizations are seeking innovative ways to streamline costs and processes, while enhancing patient experiences. This includes healthcare companies that have chosen Avaya collaboration solutions to overcome challenges such as the acceleration of Accountable Care Organization (ACO) models after healthcare legislation, and the need to address mobility and business continuity requirements in a new era of healthcare.
Avaya will be demonstrating solutions to meet these challenges at the 2013 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition in New Orleans, La. (Booth no. 6846). This includes advancements in healthcare mobility and proactive outreach -- and a new telemedicine solution with Avaya partner GlobalMed. Based on Scopia video collaboration technologies, this solution addresses the 'Rural Health' initiative and improves patient outcomes by enabling healthcare practitioners to visit patients at their home, and use videoconferencing devices and cloud workflow to collaborate and conduct exams with specialists in another location.
Healthcare Companies Evolving with Avaya Technology
Two healthcare organizations that have recently chosen Avaya collaboration solutions to evolve communications are Franciscan Alliance, a 13-hospital health system that includes clinics, home health services and doctors serving Indiana and Illinois, and Sisters of Charity Health System, owner of four hospitals in Ohio and South Carolina. The Avaya Connect channel partner for these implementations was Integration Partners.
The evolution of healthcare requires that organizations optimize health system performance. To address the challenges of enhancing patient experience of care, improving the health of populations and reducing the per capita cost of healthcare, Franciscan Alliance is simplifying and future-proofing their infrastructure with solutions from Avaya. Their Avaya Virtual Enterprise Network Architecture (VENA) is reinforced with high-level security, QoS and disaster recovery capabilities, and was implemented with zero downtime -- a critical factor that keeps hospital operations seamless and uninterrupted when evolving communications needs. With this approach, Franciscan Alliance can decrease costs by reducing hardware and configuration needs, while driving affordability requirements.
