This is a great advantage as it helps free the specialist without immediate pressure to study the patient history and enables time to attend to other crucial tasks. The doctor is in a position to revisit this information at a more convenient time. The information about patients can be provided by the hospital at any time and doctors can view it with a single click.
Saves time and offers better service to patients: When patients call in, the IVR system has an Auto attendant feature which activates auto reply to a call. After welcoming the patient, the auto attendant feature moves on to assist in providing the required information without human interference. All types of queries pertaining to the hospital and services are presented to the caller in a menu format and after the choice of information is made, the caller is auto directed to the information without any employee engagement. With the IVR system in place, manpower can be employed in other indispensible areas, thus improving quality of healthcare.
