The medical industry is consistently evolving, focusing not just on the quality of care but also on improving the patient experience. With the majority of patients’ first interactions being over the phone, having a professional, HIPAA-compliant answering service is more critical than ever. At Centratel, we offer a Medical Answering Service tailored to meet the unique demands of the medical sector, ensuring both efficiency and patient satisfaction.
The Significance of Telephone Interactions in the Medical Sector
According to a study by the Journal of Healthcare Management, nearly 70% of patients’ impressions of a medical establishment are formed during their initial phone interaction. A missed call or a long waiting time can potentially lead to a patient seeking care elsewhere. In an industry where every call might be an emergency, the stakes are incredibly high.
