CHRISTUS Health Launched Virtual Assistant
Supporting Vaccinations Across Four States
Your efforts over the last several weeks and in particular the push in the last few days despite the holiday have enabled us to take necessary steps to try to control the spread of COVID and save lives.Andria Cardinalli-Stein, Ambulatory Chief Quality Officer, Northeast Texas Region
As a trusted partner in the communities it serves, CHRISTUS Health experienced a significant surge in demand from patients seeking COVID-19 information, wanting to determine eligibility, and set vaccine appointments. CHRISTUS anticipated their call centers and support staff would be overwhelmed trying to answer everyone’s questions.
Vaccinating CHRISTUS communities required a configurable solution that quickly minimized provider and staff interactions. Automating scheduling and answering questions allowed CHRISTUS to prioritize provider availability to vaccinating patients.
