“We have control over how and when we communicate with internal and external customers that we never had before.”

HealthEast, one of the largest health care providers in Saint Paul, Minnesota, was struggling with an out-of-date contact center and communications solution.


  • Complex healthcare system spanning four hospitals, one long-term and three short-term acute centers, plus 14 clinics and specialty clinics
  • Outdated Avaya contact center solution not meeting its needs
  • Needed to access data from Epic via contact center and channel applications



  • A 20 percent increase in agent productivity based on new design and technology
  • A 6 percent decrease in Abandon Rates
  • 30 percent to 86 percent increase in SLAs
