Pandemic Can Affect a Medical Facility In More Ways Than One
The ongoing pandemic has caused disruptions to regular office routines. However, if you own or operate a busy medical practice, patient care is your top priority. One way of taking care of patients is to respond to requests for appointments, medication changes, and various questions efficiently.
Using a medical call center allows a practice to answer and respond to calls promptly. Here is how a professional medical call center can help.
Fluctuating Call Volume
One of the most significant changes during these turbulent times is a fluctuation in call volumes. Many schools have switched to online learning which requires parent supervision. Families may wish to reschedule appointments and request additional medication refills. The regular cold and flu season is coming up as well, so there may be a spike in appointment requests.
Changes in Client Hours
The quarantine could also mean some shorter or longer hours, or additional closings for a medical office. A medical call center will have this information in advance and handle all incoming calls for your business. Answering365 provides 24/7 answering services and can deliver medical dispatch services and appointment scheduling services. While the clinic is closed, patients will be able to speak with a helpful agent who will assist them on your behalf.
Different Client Requirements
