Call center experts help achieve results-driven outcomes for medical call centers
It’s no secret that the healthcare industry is being pushed. They must accomplish more, do it better, and do it for less. This means more work, increased pressure, and lower reimbursement rates. And the call center sits at the center of this. They are in the ideal position to cost-effectively address these pain points. While doing so they can improve the level of care and enhance patient access.
Often the telephone serves as a patient’s entry-point into a health system, preparing them to receive a lifetime of healthcare services. And Call Center Sales Pro is ready to help healthcare providers navigate this ever-evolving reality for their call center.
Visionary Leadership: Call Center Sales Pro was launched in 2014 by call center industry veteran, Janet Livingston. Her initial mission was to help outsource call centers and answering services take the pain out of growing their business. Since then Call Center Sales Pro has developed into a full-service contact center consultancy. They pride themselves in addressing big picture issues for their clients. This includes operations, accounting, technology, customer service, and administration, in addition to sales and marketing.
They also expanded into the healthcare niche. The collective expertise of their team is an ideal match for the needs and opportunities afforded by the healthcare industry. “We didn’t start out focusing on healthcare,” Livingston said, “but that’s certainly where were headed. Our team of call center professionals fits great with the healthcare industry. We know how to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the call center to achieve profitable outcomes—and healthy results.”
HIPAA Compliance Training: Toward this end, Call Center Sales Pro has developed a HIPAA compliance training program. It’s designed to accomplish three things. The first is to educate healthcare call center employees about HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). Next, the course covers why this is important. Last, they stress how to follow its guidelines. This includes learning about PHI (protected health information), how to recognize it, and the essential steps to take to protect it. Critical to this is understanding how PHI is transmitted between covered entities (CE) and business associates (BA).
Livingston notes that HIPAA training is required for anyone with access to PHI. Additionally, all healthcare organizations must provide HIPAA instruction for all staff, with periodic refresher training. Call Center Sales Pro’s HIPAA compliance training program addresses these needs. It’s an online video course with a live instructor and takes about 45 to 60 minutes.
Healthcare Call Center Consulting: While their HIPAA compliance training program is a critical tool for every healthcare call center, the cornerstone of Call Center Sales Pro’s work revolves around healthcare call center consulting. They offer a full-service consultancy that specializes in addressing the needs of healthcare contact centers in today’s ever-changing environment.
Their team of consultants can assist healthcare organizations with their call center operation, customer service, and agent training. They can also address staffing, disaster recovery planning, and call center technology.
By customizing their consulting program, they can meet the specific needs of each client, which can include:
- Add expertise to supplement the call center’s management team.
- Optimize systems, protocols, and processes for optimal results.
- Pursue new initiatives.
- Solve problems that restrict the ability to capitalize on evolving opportunities.
- Refocus call center direction and priorities.
System Optimization: A third component Call Center Sales Pro addresses for healthcare call centers focuses on call center system optimization. This specifically addresses the 1Call platform from Amtelco. Call Center Sales Pro is an expert resource in mastering this powerful technology and harnessing it to achieve maximum results.
The key outcomes that healthcare call centers can accomplish with Call Center Sales Pro as their partner include helping patients better manage their healthcare, increasing per-patient revenue, and maximizing their lifetime value. Critical to this is helping shift call centers from being a cost center to a revenue center.
In addition, Call Center Sales Pro can handle strategic planning and logistics, offer technical support and system engineering, and provide agent training and coaching. They can also address system setup, configuration, and optimization, as well as enhance medical answering service functions.
