Coming to the 7 key advantages of BPO outsourcing medical answering services, here is the all-embracing list:
The first major benefit is that you can choose to FOCUS ON YOUR PATIENTS.
We understand your patients are the reason for your existence. Outsourcing your healthcare call center services leaves your doctors, nurses and other staff with more time to take care of the patients. They can focus on the critical tasks, thus enriching the quality of service at your hospital.
Hiring a trained and experienced team for your hospital call center service means you continue receiving patient queries that will be answered as professionally as you would want them to, without interrupting your core services. This will result in more revenues for the hospital from new patients.
The second major benefit is that you can choose to MINIMIZING OPERATING COSTS.
Running an in-house call center demands a lot of extra costs- advertising to hire deserving candidates, their training processes, investing in appropriate infrastructure in terms of space and equipment, employee benefits, and above all, premium real estate that could very well be used as another few rooms for your core business- hospitalization of patients.
You can save bulk of these costs when you hire an outsourced hospital call center like Open Mind as we already employ well trained call center executives at our offices, without any need for you to vacate existing rooms in your hospital to accommodate them.
The third major benefit is that you can choose to INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY.
Healthcare facilities like a Hospital are by default 24/7 operations. But a call center that works 24/7 requires 3 times the investment, or at least doubles your operative costs. Outsourcing your hospital call center helps you eliminate the exorbitant costs of working overtime. Your hospital can also enjoy the freedom of arranging for the call center services at your desired hours.
Added to it is the enormous benefit of hiring empathetic, well trained executives who are adept at soothing frayed nerves. Our hospital call center executives undergo special training sessions continuously, focusing on the accuracy of information they disseminate as well as how they propagate that information so that patients and their families stay calm and composed.
The fourth major benefit of outsourcing a healthcare call center is SAVING A LIBERAL AMOUNT OF TIME.
It is no secret that doctors and allied medical staff are one of the busiest professionals and a 24-hour day probably extends to 36 hours for them. Every single day. It becomes criminal to expect them to also attend to a call center queries in such a scenario.
Our experience and discussions with many hospitals has revealed an interesting phenomenon- Even if your in-house call center hires a dedicated staff, they invariably tend to rush to doctors and other staff for help, for the sole reason that help is available at hand.
It is in the best interest of the hospital and patients that such instances are avoided and patient communication should be handled by a professional call center. A wide-ranging support from empathetic professionals who are trained for such calls can leverage your credibility and brand image.
The fifth major benefit of outsourcing a medical call center is BETTER COMPLIANCE.
The healthcare industry comes with a distinctive set of stringent regulations and standards, that necessitates following a rigorous set of protocol in every transaction. Outsourcing a hospital call center to a professional and experienced team of call center operators signifies that a hospital is resolute about serving its patients and prospects the best it can offer.
Healthcare call center services are extremely helpful to hospitals looking to deliver exceptional patient care- by focusing on attending their patients better, improving overall efficiency and working with experienced call center executives at a budget-friendly price.
The sixth major benefit of outsourcing hospital call center is access to MODERN INFRASTRUCTURE at POCKET-FRIENDLY PRICES.
A call center is way more than a few telephones connected together to a system, allowing a few people to answer queries! A best-in-class technology infrastructure requires huge investment plus uninterrupted modernization since what’s new in IT becomes obsolete within months.
