CUSTOMER SERVICE TRAINING FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS CLASS DESCRIPTION
Your attitudes, manners, and facility amenities are as necessary to patients as the treatment processes. From the patient’s perspective, healthcare is as much a consumer-focused service as other service industries. Students will learn how to optimize patients’ experiences just as business operators in retail stores and banks, colleges, and universities, and the travel industry do for their customers.
It is safe to say, most healthcare facilities you deal with failure to deliver superior customer service. No one was born knowing this skill…it is a learned trait. How can you expect to provide the kind of customer service that wows your customers if you do not train to do so?
This course is offered for each level of customer service:
- For policymakers, we examine how company policies can impact customer service. In the vast majority of cases, company policies are responsible for customer dissatisfaction. Policies that are made for what is most convenient and/or profitable for the company, with little consideration on how they impact the customer relationship, can have a devastating impact on customer retention resulting in declining sales. Poor customer service policies will also affect employee retention. Employees consistently forced to deal with irate customers will soon seek employment elsewhere.
- For managers, we discuss how to manage the customer service program with an emphasis on building a motivated customer service team.
- For the customer service representative, this two-day class examines who we are and what we do as a healthcare provider. We analyze our attitude and communications skills and take a hard look at what our customers need. We learn customer service skills whether delivered in person, over the phone or electronically. Finally, we learn how to handle complaints and challenging patients.
