Delivering high availability for critical patient care

10 hospitals and multiple departments now operating as one.

The challenge

A legacy environment with an install that had already gone badly. Capstone jumps in to save the day.

That was the situation for our healthcare customer. They had completed a large RFP and were in the process of installing their new Avaya CM environment and integrating with their legacy Nortel systems. The vendor could not handle the install and decided to leave the customer without support.

The solution

One complete, fully integrated solution for the entire operation

Capstone was engaged on the project and quickly was able to get things back on track and fix all systems that were not installed correctly. Over the next several years more hospitals and more remote offices were brought onto the system and Capstone’s dedicated team of project managers, engineers and service delivery managers kept the projects moving and the customer updated and informed. The Healthcare system has recently bought more hospitals and Capstone has been there to integrate their phones system from Cisco, Shortel, and Microsoft all into the Avaya Session Manager.

We designed and implemented a custom solution to:

  • Migrate the hospitals legacy telephony network to the latest telephony protocols (SIP)
  • Create a fully resilient architecture to fit the 24×7 “always on” nature of the customer’s setup
  • Consolidate the entire business and branch network into a single dial plan
  • Deploy Ascom wireless system to provide doctors and nurses with medical grade mobile phones
  • Upgraded the trunking to high availability Sonus/Ribbon SBC’s to integrate with both Avaya and Microsoft Skype for Business
  • Installed Avaya Equinox for mobile clients on iPhone and for soft phones
  • Enable E911 routing for all sites
  • Provide reporting tools to assess key statistics
  • Optimize network routing and on-net calling to keep all systems connected

The result

Technology powering a more agile operation and delivering a new competitive edge

The health network is able to integrate all of their contact centers and operators and move them to central locations therefore leveraging a larger talent pool to process customer interactions more efficiently. Capstone continues to work with the evolving needs of the health network and is there to support them with all technologies that they will be utilizing in the future.
