Largest Free Standing Privately Held Cancer Center in the U.S. Replaces Legacy Avaya System With RingCentral Cloud Communications Solution

Comprehensive Blood & Cancer Center of California enhances physician connectivity; improves patient experience; eliminates complex manageability of legacy system

BELMONT, Calif.—February 23, 2016 - RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE:RNG), a leading provider of cloud communications and collaboration solutions, today announced that Comprehensive Blood & Cancer Center (CBCC), a leading free standing, UCLA affiliated, privately held cancer center in the United States, has migrated its communications to the cloud by selecting RingCentral Office to replace its legacy on-premise Avaya PBX system. 

With a need to support an untethered working environment to better serve patients, CBCC adopted  RingCentral Office, a complete cloud business communications solution designed for the mobile workforce, enabling physicians, nurse practitioners, and employees to easily stay connected anytime, anywhere. Using RingCentral on mobile devices, CBCC has seen significant improvement in the patient experience, as doctors are more reachable and can return patient calls from any location while maintaining the privacy of their personal mobile contact.

“Moving to the cloud for our communications was the best decision we’ve made as we’re now connected with our patients and colleagues whether we are in the office, at home or even traveling overseas," said Dr. Ravi Patel, founder of CBCC. “Our patients are happier, our IT staff is focused on more productive areas, and we now have a state of the art solution that makes our future expansion limitless. RingCentral has helped significantly with video conferencing and web meetings, powerful communication tools, often needed in managing and planning complex cancer care both locally and nationally.”

CBCC’s legacy system had no flexibility to efficiently manage patient call volumes, had reached its scalability limits, had no mobility support, and was expensive and difficult to maintain. With RingCentral Office, CBCC’s patient-facing staff has become more productive, helping improve the overall patient experience. Furthermore, the IT staff no longer has to bear the burden of managing complex PBX equipment, and can now focus on productive, business-impacting matters. When CBCC recently expanded its office space, the IT team wasn’t concerned with how to scale the communications system since RingCentral Office is cloud-based.

“Our goal is to help businesses effectively communicate with their customers – in this case, efficiently and flexibly connect physicians with their patients,” said Mitch Tarica, vice president of Enterprise Sales for RingCentral. "The staff at CBCC is doing amazing work, and a key pillar of delivering excellent healthcare services is enabling seamless patient communications. We’re glad that RingCentral has been able to migrate CBCC to the modern cloud communications solution."

CBCC is committed to investing in new technologies and treatment options, recently including the CBCC CyberKnife® Center, the first and only robotic radiosurgery system, and the only technology in the world located at a free standing cancer center.
