Inbound Medical Call Center and Support For ER
Emergency rooms earned their name for a reason: both medical and support staff deal with truly urgent and frequently sudden medical issues day and night. Even non-emergency medical offices and departments often have time-sensitive issues to deal with, from the provision of care to the maintenance of supplies and conditions that allows medical action to be taken swiftly and correctly. One thing few ERs and other busy medical offices have time for is the constant interruption of a ringing telephone.
With an inbound medical call center providing support for an ER and/or other medical department, staff will be able to dedicate themselves to performing the medical and support tasks necessary for treating patients while someone else handles over-the-phone triage, scheduling, and more. An answering service for hospitals and other medical centers employs professional virtual receptionists specifically trained to handle calls from patients and those in medical distress. An outsourced service like this can improve efficiency, improve patient satisfaction ratings, and even improve care outcomes by allowing doctors, nurses, and others to do what they do best.
