Drive Higher Response Rates

Over one-third (34%) of U.S. consumers said they would be more honest when talking about their medical needs through an automated call, email, or text message than in person with a healthcare provider. TeleVox Patient Satisfaction Surveys can be delivered after hours when your patients are more likely to be willing and able to complete your survey. Allowing them to provide feedback from the comfort of their own home eliminates the discomfort a patient may feel when providing feedback live or in-office.

Get Faster Results

TeleVox Patient Satisfaction Surveys can begin interacting with patients in as little as 48 hours from their last appointment. Best practice calling times, customizable survey branching and multiple answer format options ensure you collect the most relevant feedback from your patients to make the best decisions for your organization. Patient survey responses are analyzed immediately, and actionable survey results are conveniently accessed online 24/7 from any location.

Collect Data for Less

The solution requires no upfront investment and gathers personalized feedback for a fraction of the cost of mailed surveys or live interviews. Your organization could save thousands in annual costs commonly associated with traditional survey methods, including ever-rising postal rates and FTE hours spent on preparing mailed communications or making manual outbound calls.

Devote Staff to Other Important Tasks

TeleVox Patient Satisfaction Surveys gather data with no staff involvement or impact on your telecom resources or call center, allowing your staff to focus on other important tasks.
