Customer Service and Patient Retention
1 hour Audio and Power Point Presentation
Recorded September 25, 2015
With the Patient Affordable Care Act fully in motion, there will be many more insureds. Interestingly, many of these new patients will be enrolled in high deductible plans that means they are spending first dollar. Physician groups will need to understand all of the nuances of what truly effective customer service means. In addition, patient retention will be just as necessary in the new world of branding and competition. This presentation will coordinate a discussion about market changes and ideas you can deploy to begin adapting to these changes.
- Define the impact of the Affordable Care Act and other recent industry changes on patient's service expectations.
- Make observations of how patients are more informed as to their health care options.
- Describe the shift from a paternalistic model of care to a facilitative model of care
- Identify how patient expectations for service and outcomes are changing.
- Recognize the value of maintaining an existing patient versus drawing in new patients from the community.
