Remove barriers between your medical practice and your patients, increase customer satisfaction, and deliver a great experience with bilingual customer service representatives
Customer service is a top priority in every business, and for a good reason. In medical practices, your patients are the foundation of your business. Looking for ways to improve their experience could help you retain customers while delivering more value to them.
The demand for bilingual call centers is growing in the U.S. – and shows no signs of slowing down. United States of America is a multicultural country and with that comes multiple languages that converge.
One of them is Spanish, the second most common non-English language spoken in the country. There are an estimated 41 million Spanish speakers in the U.S. and that number is increasing.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, it is estimated that by 2050, the United States will have 138 million Spanish speakers.
People need medical assistance and that is where medical practices need to be ready. The main purpose for medical practices is to provide excellent care for patients regardless of the language they speak.

Make sure your call center services are HIPAA Compliant
Before choosing a call center to work with, healthcare organizations must ensure that they are HIPAA complaint. HIPAA compliant call centers enable medical practices to make sure their information and their patients is safe and protected.
At HP, we validate the account patients are calling from and verify if they are the patient. If they are not the patient, we check if the person is an authorized party on the account. This means the patient has signed a document where they authorize somebody else to get information about their account, or, that the practice annotated that on the PMS system.
We always confirm that we are speaking to the patient. It is essential so validate if that person is allowed to get the information.
Healthcare offices and their business associates must comply with the HIPAA privacy, security and breach notification rules and implement reasonable safeguards to prevent violations. Even with controls in place, violations and data breaches can still occur. Most breaches that occur are unintentional but still represent a serious issue that can bring major consequences”.
