Collections aren’t just a job for the billing office. And nurturing patient loyalty isn’t just the job of the physician. Everyone in patient flow chain – including the front office staff – has a role to play in patient service, work flow and collections. In this entertaining-but-illuminating session, Elizabeth Woodcock brings a wealth of wisdom, tips and tools that will help front office staff improve time-of-service collections, optimize work flow and nurture patient loyalty. Whether the job is "perfect" appointment reminder calls, flawless patient registrations, or impeccable management of each patient’s wait, your front office staff has a lot to offer.
This session will enlighten and empower you in:
- Proven techniques to manage incoming telephone calls;
- Top-notch reception and welcoming of every patient;
- Optimal time-of-service collections;
- Seamless management of patients’ wait times;
- Picture-perfect handling of appointment scheduling; and
- Peak performance in service quality.
In this audio conference, you’ll learn what case-studies, research and a wealth of professional experience has to say about how to perfect front office performance. Plus, you’ll get take-aways including a job interview guide for front office staff, a mystery patient survey template and sample time-of-service collections scripts. The question isn’t, ‘should I register for this audio conference?’ but, rather, ‘how can I afford not to use these ideas in my practice?’
