If you follow our blog, you are aware that in our recent articles, we have already discussed how we started our Call Centre from scratch, our core working strategy line and phone systems we prefer in the course of the cooperation process.
As a Customer Support direction has been witnessing a rapid growth lately, there has arisen one more essential point calling for discussion: EHR (electronic healthcare records)/EMR (electronic medical records) software platforms. Yes, the cloud systems nowadays are something every business is perfectly aware of and, what is more, actively using to make the venture more efficient, coherent and customer focused. There are a good number of opportunities to jump at with a properly chosen medical EMA that will resonate with you and your business.
What about the sphere of Customer Support? What place does it occupy in the EMA systems modern market? To be more precise, the idea of the article has resulted from the fact that Call Center services are super tightly customer-connected and customer-oriented ones, so the platforms preferred and, consequently, chosen have to be paid special attention to.

This experience allows us to quickly master any system, regardless of the direction as well as to understand the approaches, requirements and capabilities of a system and assistants who work with it. More precisely, the virtual assistant has a solid background for customer support handling, the very medical direction and is well aware of the main tools, functions and features of such medical systems. Each of our assistants passes HIPAA training and certification (needed for US market) to add to his/her professionalism considerably.

The above-mentioned platforms are quite good with that as well.
IMPORTANT: In order to make the issue maximally informative and clear, the above presented EMA systems report is based on our practical experience; we have discussed here the very systems we have worked with but it is not a single problem for us to switch to other tools and master them in no time.
Consequently, feel free to contact our virtual assistants on other business vectors customer support as well to promote your business with. Our agents have solid expertise while working with various systems and it will not take them long to master new ones.
TIP: As practice shows, it frequently happens that a company wants to change a CRM system. For sure, a virtual assistant can help you with that process as this is one of our responsibilities. However, you should be aware of the fact that the very process of data transmission is rather a time-, money- and effort consuming task as the very personal data is highly sensitive and under HIPAA (US) or GDPR (Europe) protection.
The BPO agency that works with a team of employees directly in the office, besides working with the existing system, will be able to provide the client with a data transfer service if you need to change the EMA.
