Chicago-Based AVIA announces expanded partnerships with top U.S. health systems
During the first six months of 2021, AVIA, the nation’s leading digital health transformation partner, added six new Member health systems with a record 100% renewal rate from existing Members. This growing demand to join the AVIA Network reflects the heightened sense of urgency for health systems to optimize their digital strategies and mission-critical initiatives.
The six new health system Members joined the AVIA Network to accelerate their digital strategies and advance digital capabilities such as care delivery, revenue cycle management, and remote and virtual care initiatives. New Members include: Lee Health, LifeBridge Health, MedStar Health, MercyOne, Moffitt Cancer Center, Multicare.
“The sharp uptake in demand we are seeing from both new and current Members is a clear reflection of a sea change in approach to digital innovation.

As a result, these organizations are turning to us to get ahead of retail-first disruptors by planning and executing a digital strategy.”
