Health care organizations are becoming more competitive and more driven by patient loyalty. Patient loyalty is primarily a function of how a patient feels they were treated during the receipt of their care. It's more important than ever for medical organizations to remain in-tune with the needs and perceptions of patients as well as providing thorough customer service training to employees. This is what's going to allow medical organizations to gain a competitive edge in a rapidly shifting industry.
When delivering care the focus should be on the patient and providing the best value for the individual, which means that healthcare providers and organizations must work to create a patient centric experience - which is why customer service is an imperative.
Why should you attend?
Creating a patient - centric experience means that you integrate communication and patient engagement to create the best possible experience.
Great patient service begins and ends with how you train your employees. Until recently, it's something that wasn't given a lot of attention in the healthcare industry and it began to take its toll. What?s important to remember is that these people who come into the hospital or doctor's office are still consumers and they have to be treated as such. Ultimately, health care providers have to be skilled, expert physicians, nurses, etc., but they also have to serve as a customer service representative, which can be a difficult undertaking.
