Healthcare provider enhances contact opportunities and responsiveness to meet growth demands fueled by location expansion and growthLITTLE ROCK, Ark., June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Windstream Enterprise, a leading provider of advanced network communications, today announced that Physician One Urgent Care, serving Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts, has positioned itself to provide reliable access for patients as it continues to expand across the tri-state region. Windstream Enterprise (WE) channel partner Infinite Technology Consulting (ITC) recommended OfficeSuite UC to Physician One as a solution that could replace their outdated legacy system, and provide a cost-effective solution that could grow with them as their needs changed.
“When we met with ITC, we were struggling with adding new facilities to our existing premise-based phone system,” says Mayara Miranda, Physician One IT system analyst. “We needed a system that was easily scalable, had the ability to quickly reroute calls and increase our mobility with a solution that was user-centric vs. device centric.”
According to the Urgent Care Association of America, the industry is expected to grow on average by 6 percent in 2018 with many of the larger companies growing at double-digit rates, and Physician One is responding to that trend with 17 current locations and more on the drawing board. Open daily, evenings and on weekends, urgent care centers fill the need to treat routine health needs while delivering additional services such as X-rays and a more convenient, cost-effective, and timely option for serious but non-emergency medical situations.
“OfficeSuite UC delivered all the functionality Physician One was looking for,” says Sean Kelly, ITC founder and chief executive officer. “We were able to quickly add more than 200 agent seats, and the hosted system allows Physician One to easily add new sites, manage all locations via a ‘single pane of glass’ and quickly re-route calls to back-up facilities as call demands change.”
