Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association and Clinica Tepeyac to Pilot ‘Voice with Visuals’ Communications
BOULDER, CO (October 7, 2015) — Radish Systems, an award-winning mobile/enterprise software company adding visuals to any phone call, announces that through its participation in the Digital Health Challenge run by Prime Health of Colorado two Colorado healthcare organizations will pilot ChoiceView(r). Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association will use ChoiceView to provide ‘Voice with Visuals’ communications with field staff. Clinica Tepeyac will use ChoiceView to improve communications with its patient population. ChoiceView allows organizations to talk and share visuals (and data) with smart device or browser users. All callers see, hear, and send visual content and data while talking with live and “self-service” agents. The firms Radish works with want to improve the customer experience, save time and money, and increase profits.
2015 DIGITAL HEALTH CHALLENGE
The 2015 Digital Health Challenge, powered by $150,000 from the Colorado Health Foundation (www.ColoradoHealth.org), brought together leading healthcare organizations and digital health entrepreneurial ventures with the goal of matching organizations to pilot new products, especially to help safety net institutions.
Lisa Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, said, “We are delighted to investigate improving communication and serving patients faster and with better comprehension. This pilot is a great opportunity to test Radish’s ChoiceView technology.”
“ChoiceView will strengthen customer service on behalf of our patients and the community we serve. This is part of our overall effort to improve communications with our patients and demonstrate responsiveness to their needs,” stated Jim Garcia, Executive Director of Clinica Tepeyac.
CHOICEVIEW EVERYWHERE OPERATION
With ChoiceView, what started out as a regular phone call is transformed to a voice and visual call with endless ways for businesses to serve their customers. Users call from anywhere in the world using ANY phone including a smartphone, standard mobile phone, landline, Skype, webRTC, or other VoIP service while visuals are displayed on a mobile device, PC, Mac, or tablet. ChoiceView callers use a standard Internet browser and the free ChoiceView Web App (no download required) or the free ChoiceView Mobile App that works with any ChoiceView-equipped business. Try it out by calling +1-720-440-7560 or going to m.radishsystems.com on your mobile device and selecting Try ChoiceView Now.
