How to fix hospital call centers to improve patient experience

In this article, Cancer Treatment Centers of America® was rated by mystery shoppers as the “gold standard” in call center customer service:

“Of the 20 call centers we tested as self-appointed Mystery Shoppers, we found one that did everything right – largely because the call center representative was compassionate, and knew where to send us for further information. That happened with the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), which encourages patients to call anytime, 24/7, or participate in a live chat, or even communicate via video chat with an expert.

“While CTCA’s customer service is the gold standard that many organizations should emulate, some call centers need to walk before they can run.”
