About Arizona State University Center for Services Leadership

The Arizona State University Center for Services Leadership (CSL) was

About Allviant

Allviant, a division of Medicity, Inc., is the developer of the Allviant Service
Relationship Management (SRM) platform and the first-ever, consumer-centric SRM
tools and network for healthcare called CarePass. CarePass gives consumers a new
method of access, convenience and control by connecting existing healthcare
information systems and administrative data though a personally defined set of
communication mediums and methods-from phone to text to email or fax. The
opposite of customer relationship management (CRM), SRM empowers the customer to
determine when and how they want to interact with service providers across their
unique array of relationships-making a disconnected healthcare world painless
and saving time, money and frustration for everyone. For more information,
