Critical Communications

A hospital’s contact center platform helps to unify and simplify communications related to on-call schedule management, secure messaging, and automation.

Quickly directing callers to an agent for assistance helps your organization provide better patient care. 1Call’s healthcare contact center software includes built-in automatic call distribution (ACD) capabilities with ACD skill groups to help you accurately send callers to an agent trained to help them. This increases efficiency for both callers and agents, helping improve patient satisfaction.

In critical situations, ensuring fast response times is crucial to providing the best care for patients. The innovative 1Call MergeComm integration engine features automated dispatch capabilities to contact personnel quickly.

Now you can streamline the process of contacting on-call personnel with 1Call’s OnCall Connect feature. To use this, physicians, nurses, and staff call an extension, select an on-call resource, and the 1Call Smart Paging feature can contact the resource – all without talking to an operator! OnCall Connect saves time for your physicians, nurses, and staff and helps your personnel respond faster.

Patient experience leadership should involve their contact centers when planning frictionless patient experience goals. The technology already being used in their call centers, along with well-trained, informed agents, can be leveraged to help the entire enterprise achieve its patient-first goals.
