Medical Practice Front Desk Success

Does your front office staff go above and beyond to optimize the patient experience?

5 Questions to Ask:

  1. Do they communicate with tact and discretion when greeting patients, vendors, insurance companies, and other offices?
  2. Are they able to handle challenging personalities and situations?
  3. Do they understand their role and how they fit into the overall workflow in the office?
  4. Can they explain your financial policies, guard PHI, and maintain security standards?
  5. Do they display good organization and time management skills?

How often do you evaluate patient communication?

A welcoming and attentive front office can turn a difficult time for your patients and their families into a caring, positive experience. Small changes in the way your staff connects with new, established, and prospective patients can have dramatic results.
