Ensure every patient call is a positive experience

A medical call center is often the front line of patient interaction and the quality of the experience can mean the difference between setting an interaction on a positive path or leading the patient to another provider. At CMS, we help healthcare providers ensure that every call center interaction is perfect. We know every phone call is important and work with providers to map the entire call experience, from the auto-attendant or IVR to the scripting live operators use for each call type.

Your centralized healthcare call center

As patients increasingly seek convenient care access and a straightforward care experience, healthcare organizations are under pressure to make their call center operations more efficient. At CMS, we help healthcare organizations set up centralized call center operations that deliver a myriad of capabilities, from basic telephone answering and message taking to medical office software integration and appointment scheduling.

We can help you build your medical call center from the ground-up, from establishing call-taking procedures to determining call routing, on-call scheduling, message delivery, and reporting. Whether you need a custom medical call center for a single facility or a centralized contact center for an entire hospital network, our solutions are scalable and customizable to fit your needs.

Custom Medical Call Center Services

We deliver more than your typical Medical Call Center by combining top tier customer service with leading technology personalized to the needs of your organization.

Frequently Asked Questions

A medical call center works by taking calls for a medical practice or healthcare organizations. The call center may be responsible for centralizing appointment scheduling, taking messages after office hours, connecting patients with on-call doctors, handling appointment reminders, providing general information, and handling other routine telephone functions.

Medical Call Center costs are based on usage and complexity of the setup. That means you only pay for the time you need, nothing more.

Yes. All of our Medical Call Center services are 100% HIPAA compliant. We take privacy and security seriously. While the handling of the caller is important to the success of a doctor’s office, how the information is handled and protected is just as important. This is why we offer HIPAA Compliant Answering Services for healthcare companies, ensuring sensitive patient health information (PHI) gathered during each call is secure and compliant with the latest HIPAA policies and requirements.

We utilize an on-call scheduling system that enables you to manage your on-call schedule. That way, it’s always up to date and integrated with our call center. We follow the instructions that each on-call contact has on file. We can reach practitioners via secure text message, page, a phone call — whichever contact method works best for them. We can also follow detailed escalation procedures to ensure we reach someone in the event our primary on-call or primary contact method was not successful. In short, we always have what we need to reach the right on-call staff member and do so quickly to ensure your patients hear back quickly.

Yes! This is the most common way that healthcare companies use to send their calls to us. This is accomplished using call forwarding features from your telephone company. 

Yes. We have two call center facilities in the United States, one in Columbus, Ohio, and a second facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. All of our calls are handled in the USA.
