Medical answering service.

The need for modern medicine will always be prevalent. So will the need for exceptional customer care to those you serve.

More often than not, people contact your facility because they have a pressing medical problem and need your help. As anyone who has ever required medical assistance knows, the frustration of reaching an automated service or voicemail can escalate your uneasiness and make you feel worse. The simple solution to that concern is to offer a live-voice medical answering service to your patients and their families. Instead of the canned, unfeeling voice of a computer, having compassionate, professional operators on the other end of the phone line instills an immediate sense of calm in your callers. Did you know that only 26% of companies have a strategy for improving the customer’s experience? We believe that nothing is more personal or improves a customer’s experience faster than speaking to a real person. SAS takes customer care just as seriously as you take patient care.

There are over 1 billion visits to doctors’ offices annually. 1 billion visits = a lot of phone calls! For under $5 a day, SAS’ live-voice service can be your front desk staff’s best friend.

SASDelivering Outstanding Customer Support

Specialty is a HIPAA compliant medical call center, providing complete patient services and logistics solutions for your industry. While we offer around-the-clock answering, our team can do so much more. As medical industry specialists, we are able to schedule appointments, make outbound reminder calls, and operate emergency hotline services on your behalf. We customize our plans to meet the particular needs of your organization. Research shows that an individual will spend an average of 1.2 years waiting on hold. No one has that kind of time to spare, especially when it comes to medical concerns. That is why we work diligently to ensure rapid response – usually within 3 rings or less – and accurate communication of your patients’ issues and information.

What We Can Do.

Our team of more than 300 customer service representatives is well-versed in the practice of phone answering services for the medical industry, and we will follow your regulations to a tee. We have an ongoing system of quality control checks, making certain that your patients will always receive the highest level of care and professionalism on every call. Plans can be changed or expanded as the need presents itself.

  • 24/7 Answering Service: Our staff is on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. While the majority of your patients will call during regular business hours, around-the-clock care is a vital ingredient in proper patient care management. Patients and their families will be relieved knowing that even if your doors are closed, your office is always open. With our service, you are only as far away as a phone call.
  • Intake Procedures: Our dedicated agent service can provide staff support by gathering patients’ information prior to their first visit, answering insurance or referral questions, or responding to billing and payment inquiries. The more we know about your practice, the better we can assist you and your patients.
  • Emergency Hotlines: The quality of the medical industry is almost defined by the way organizations handle emergent care. Our agents know that reliable, respectful service is essential when screening emergency calls. Based on the criteria you provide, we will gather all of the pertinent information and contact you or your staff via phone, email, text, or pager. We can even establish direct hotlines for patients to use in cases of extreme emergencies.
  • Appointment Scheduling : Interfacing with your online calendar management application, we can schedule, modify, or cancel appointments for callers. Any updates will be immediately communicated to you and your staff so that you can plan accordingly. Additionally, our outbound call reminder service greatly contributes to increased efficiency and prevents miscommunication and missed appointments.
