5 Things You Might Not Have Known?

Could Your Practice Be Saving Hundreds of Dollars – and Dozens of Hours – Per Month With an Automated After-Hours Phone System?

For all the technology and sophistication of modern medicine, it's often surprising how uncoordinated many practices are when it comes to handling phone calls after business hours. Over the years, we've seen offices handle them through staff receptionists and temps, expensive answering services, and even systems of traded cell phones – all just to try to manage the constant flow of patient calls, inquiries, and messages.

But are any of these really a good way to handle after hours calls? And an even better question: wouldn't it be better to save that time and money?

Most of the practices we visit would love to have a better way to handle their incoming after-hours calls, but they don't see any other options available. Or, they assume that going in a different direction has to mean disrupting their practice and incurring huge monthly bills. Thankfully, neither of these are the case. Modern technology allows for an automated after hours messaging system to be installed in your practice quickly, seamlessly, and for a lot less than your current system is probably costing you.

Here are five reasons you should consider moving your practice to an up-to-date automated answering system:

You get better information. If there is one complaint most of the physicians and office managers we talked to have about their current setups, it's that too many messages are taken incorrectly, or don't even end up with the right doctor to begin with. By letting patients decide whether they actually need to speak to someone, or leave messages in their own words, you can go a long way towards getting clear, accurate information from after-hours calls.

Modern answering systems are much more cost-effective. If inaccurate or unclear information is the biggest complaint, the high prices of most answering services have to come in as a close second. Given that most of these companies charge several dollars per call – regardless of what the patient needs, or whether the information is passed along correctly – it's not surprising that most practices save hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars every month with an automated system. Even small practices can feel the bottom-line benefits quickly, as one of our clients discovered when we slashed his after hours answering costs by more than 20%.

It means better choices for your patients, too. There are hundreds of reasons patients might want to call your office outside of normal business hours... and only a few of them require having you paged at two in the morning. By giving them a few simple choices, you can often make it easier for patients to find what they were looking for on their own – especially when it comes to driving directions, voicemail boxes, appointment confirmations, and so on.

You don't have to lose the personal touch. If there used to be a downside to all of this technology, it was that automated after hours answering systems didn't seem as personal. After all, who likes endless computerized voice prompts? Fortunately, you can set up your system however you'd like, including giving patients the option to page you or speak with an on-call receptionist.

It's all about combining quality with versatility. One of the greatest things about an automated answering system, besides the improved information and typical cost savings, is that it can almost literally set you free. Because settings can be scheduled weeks, months, or years ahead of time, updated in a flash, and directed any way you want them to, you're no longer tied to a set schedule... or even a location. One of our clients recently decided to spend extended time at his vacation home – without disrupting his practice at all.

If your practice handles after-hours calls or stays late because it's just "always the way you've done it," or because you simply haven't had the time to look at any alternatives, now might be a great time to check out an automated system. Setting one up doesn't have to be a hassle, and it's an improvement that will pay for itself again and again in the months and years to come.

Synectic Showcase Customer- Birkenstock USA

"At Flowmaster, we had a Definity, 2 Magix and a Legend. I was becoming increasingly concerned about the age of the old legend switch. I called Synectic (you), spoke to a sales rep and it became clear it would benefit us greatly to move to an IP Office solution. We were able to drop some point to point lines, and fully integrate our 4 sites. Everyone loved the new systems and it worked with a lot of our old phones which kept the costs down.

At Birkenstock, we were running on a leased Nortel switch that was far too large for our needs. Based on my experience at Flowmaster I contacted Synectic and we were able to implement an IP Office solution. We are paying about what we did annually for the leased switch for the purchase of our new switch and everyone is very happy with the functionality.

In both situations, we were running a call center and multiple offices. The Avaya -IP Office met our needs very well. The Synectic staff was and continues to be courteous and helpful ." Alan Glazier - IT Director.
