How has the innovation advanced the field of healthcare or the practice of care?

As the novel coronavirus pandemic continues, it is necessary for people to stay home as much as possible to help fight the spread of the virus. Clearly healthcare organizations are playing a vital role in the fight against this virus, but certain sectors of the healthcare system, such as contact centers, are now requiring staff to work from home. And where recent trends in contact center communications have shifted toward the adoption of omni-channel technology that’s hosted in the cloud, today healthcare contact centers face an urgent need to implement virtual contact center technology as quickly as possible to support remote agents.

LinkLive Healthcare has advanced the field of healthcare by enabling swift and efficient patient transfer during the pandemic. Also, Revation’s security-first approach is critical as healthcare organizations use LinkLive Healthcare to communicate with patients via voice, text and video. Telehealth appointments supported by LinkLive Healthcare are efficient, easy, secure and HIPAA compliant.
