The Veterans Affairs Medical Center, a respected veterans hospital in Washington, D.C., will update its communications network with the Avaya Aura platform. Avaya Government Solutions will work with Standard Communications, Inc., a service disabled veteran-owned small business, to install and support the software by the end of the year.
The upgrade will allow healthcare professionals to stay in touch through mobile devices, including iPads.
“Healthcare organizations need secure, reliable communication solutions that can be easily adapted to the way they work,” said Chris Formant, president of Avaya Government Solutions.
“With Avaya Aura, we’re able to help medical personnel and administrators at the VA’s D.C. Medical Center communicate more efficiently, reduce the cost of care and use mobility capabilities to become more responsive. This ultimately improves patient experiences for the tens of thousands of veterans the VA serves.”
