Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health
Our team provided IT and network systems services for the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health in Los Angeles, California.
Our team helped Los Angeles County meet its goals of improved performance, shorter hold times, and compliance with federally mandated standards. We teamed with a medical systems expert to address the complete workflow, processing, and communications challenges for the ACCESS Center, a 24x7 operation that supports the mental health needs of the community.
This project included a complex contact center with our reports addressing infrastructure, data networking, base telephony, Unified Communications, IVR, Call Center, reporting tools, call recording, workforce management, computer/telephony integration, options such as reader boards, and the physical environment (workstations, lighting, sound, etc.).
Our scope of work consisted of assisting in the creation of a design that met the LA County standards. The solution was sourced using a state-wide contract, CALNET II. We also project-managed the implementation.
There were multiple limitations to the project including the need to obtain approval to modify the County’s telecommunications standards to meet the center’s business requirements. The call center is in operation 24x7, so there was no allowance for downtime during the implementation. The supporting systems and tools were manual at the time and were in the process of being updated.
