ChenMed is a forward-thinking organization committed to bringing superior healthcare to the most vulnerable population—moderate-to-low-income seniors with complex chronic diseases. The company was created to address the fractured state of doctor-patient care for seniors, a situation experienced firsthand by the founder in his successful battle with cancer. Today, ChenMed patients experience 38% fewer days hospitalized than the national average for seniors, despite the fact that most of them are living with five or more major and chronic conditions.
With a mission to create a healthcare solution specifically for their patients’ needs through dedicated doctors, a supportive team, and customized technology, ChenMed is committed to achieving excellence through scalable innovation, resourcefulness, and accountability. ChenMed’s approach is a system of more frequent and lengthier physician visits and better integrated services, aided by innovative technology—and this is where RingCentral comes in.
In order to provide patients with the best possible care and support, ChenMed needed a cloud communications solution that had robust voice, video, messaging, and conferencing capabilities, as well as an integrated contact center, all while being in accordance with HIPAA. With 1,900 RingCentral Office seats, ChenMed has a seamless experience that helps employees stay connected with patients and other colleagues across the entire enterprise.
In addition, RingCentral Contact Center now also supports 325 ChenMed help-desk agents on the front line to deliver greater patient engagement and flexibility. ChenMed uses advanced routing, queuing, and call distribution to provide more personal care to new and existing patients. The next phase of ChenMed’s deployment is to leverage RingCentral’s open platform APIs, which will enable its team to customize day-to-day workflows and drive operational efficiencies.
With the help of the RingCentral Professional Services team, ChenMed has deployed RingCentral across 41 locations, making it one of the largest healthcare companies today using RingCentral. We’re excited to play a part in their future success as they continue to expand and revolutionize the healthcare industry.
