CHRISTUS Health Partners With Avaya to Enhance Patient Experiences

More than 60 hospitals and 175 clinics in the CHRISTUS Health network
rely on Avaya communications

ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA), a leading provider of communications
solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that CHRISTUS
has implemented Avaya IX Contact Center solutions to help
digitally transform their business and provide enhanced patient

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.”
