Improve engagement with Patient Portal Service Desk Services.
Today’s healthcare organizations face a rapidly increasing volume of calls as their patient portal user population grows and patient support demands increase.
Is your team prepared if the number of daily support requests double or triple?
Proper support is critical to the ongoing success and growth of the Patient Portal and patient engagement, but supporting patients can easily overwhelm your internal IT team and prevent them from supporting physicians, clinicians and other users. Managing this basic support services internally can impact quality, cost efficiency, and productivity. Here’s how:
1. The Quality
Patient support takes expertise to ensure users and patients get the accurate and timely support they need.
2. The Distraction
Password resets, navigation issues, and other support needs can keep skilled resources off of mission-critical IT work.
3. The cost
Hiring and managing full and part-time support teams to cover support is expensive and inefficient.
