Improve Patient Satisfaction With Staff Training

How satisfied are your patients? According to recent statistics, 51% of patients would switch to a new healthcare provider to receive great customer service. Yet a whopping 81% of consumers are dissatisfied with their experience in the healthcare system, and the less they must engage with that system, the happier they are.

Today, patient satisfaction is more critical to your practice success than ever before. In order to attract, connect, convert and retain patients, your entire team – front-desk staff, billers, office managers, techs and physicians – is responsible for cultivating an outstanding patient experience. That’s where these Practice Builders’ staff training programs can help:

Whether you have a solo, small, large or multispecialty practice, our healthcare and operational management experts will train you and your staff to do the following:

  • Attract the patients you want
  • Improve telephone and customer service skills
  • Convert patient calls into appointments
