If you are looking for a way to improve the efficiency of your medical practice, you need to pay attention to your voicemail messages. You probably have a lot of patients who call the practice regularly. They have questions that need to be answered, and you need to respond to their concerns on time if you want to improve patient loyalty and provide the highest possible level of care. Unfortunately, there are situations where there can be a significant turnaround time between when patient calls come in and when you respond to them. This can often lead to multiple calls and voicemails from a single patient. How can you determine if your voicemails are being handled promptly?
The Problem: A Disconnect Between The Staff and Your Patients
If you find that you have a lot of repeated calls coming into your practice, it could be because your staff cannot keep up with your voicemail. If your staff states that they cannot keep up with the voicemails coming into practice, you need to turn them into trackable tasks that can make it easier.
Of course, there is always a chance that your staff is simply not handling the voicemail fast enough, but there is also a chance that there are too many of them. The best way you can answer this question is if you streamline your processes and work to turn your voicemails into actionable, trackable tasks.
