Studies show that patient satisfaction is at an all-time low. This is because of the lack of the communication that patients feel occurs from their doctor. Indeed most doctors don't have the ability to spend time with patients like they did years ago. Instead, a patient spends more time in a waiting room filled with crowds of people. Then, when it comes time to find out test results, they will be lucky to even receive a call back regarding their results. The onus is then put on the patient to contact the doctor and find out if everything is ok. The patients are put on hold while the records are found, they become frustrated and nervous.
Instead, with the Patient Portal for InphoniteVoice 2012 you allow patients the ability to see their results as soon as they are available. With the combination of our import/export program as well as our patient portal, you can contact patients to remind them to check their results, and have record that they have indeed received their results. Additionally, you are holding the responsibility for giving them their results and they appreciate that. The more ways you are able to communication with your patients or customers, the better your relationship with them will be. They will be happier and will be likely to continue to do business within your establishment.
