Industry experts believe that the chances of losing the customer increase manifold, in the case where the staff does not present its best self to the customer or the patient!
The number of patients requiring medical services has been increasing and with this influx in demand, it is becoming increasingly complex to manage performance consistency. Hence, when medical practice staff is not trained well, it can result in inefficient performance and reduced patient satisfaction. The practicable solution for this is good quality training on a regular basis.
Earlier, customer service training was limited to hospitality and BPO sector. However, with the increase in competition, even medical centres need to offer regular customer service training to the staff on a routine basis in order to keep their patients satisfied.
However, it should be kept in mind that training is not just a onetime affair but a continuous thing to achieve great and consistent results.
Improving customer service management at your clinic-
It is quite difficult to establish a relationship between influx of patients and staff behaviour. However, on close and regular observation, this becomes simple. The primary objective of any medical practice is patient satisfaction, which can be achieved through one of the aspects of customer management, staff training.
Plan Training and Development –
The initiators of the medical practice should plan the training and development of the staff instead of making it a random affair-
Develop objective training literature
Improvement in Performance
Post the training it is necessary to monitor the behaviour of the staff with the patients as frequently as possible as this helps make the training objective and practical. In addition regular staff training, helps consistently improve performance and also increase patient satisfaction.
When it comes to service companies, customer experience matters and patients are the customers of medical practices. Good customer service not only helps in their speedy recovery but also persuades them to return. Cordial staff results in satisfied patients hence increasing number of patients returning and also bringing other customers, which ultimately results in improved revenues.
