hc1.com(R) and Interactive Intelligence Announce Healthcare CRM and Call Center Automation Partnership

Indianapolis, IN, Dec 03, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- hc1.com, provider of the world's leading Healthcare Relationship Management(TM) solution, and Interactive Intelligence, a global provider of unified IP business communications solutions, today announced a strategic partnership that will increase the operational efficiency of medical laboratory customer service centers.

The partnership integrates hc1 Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) healthcare customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities, which provide labs with a 360-degree view of all business and clinical activities associated with each provider, with Interactive Intelligence's contact center solutions.

"In today's environment of shrinking reimbursements and increasing competition, it has never been more essential for labs to increase operational efficiency while improving service levels," says Brad Bostic, Chairman and CEO of hc1.com. "The quality and speed of each customer interaction has a direct impact upon the lab's overall success. By combining hc1.com's robust healthcare CRM capabilities with Interactive Intelligence's contact center solutions, labs are able to quickly intercept client needs while seamlessly viewing a complete history of the relationship." "For example," adds Bostic. "When a contact calls in to the lab, Caller ID immediately identifies the individual and presents the service representative with a screen conveying all associated clinical and business activities. Based on the inquiry, the call can be resolved, rerouted, or recorded in a matter of moments. At the same time, managers are able to better train and manage resources with a real-time view into active calls and call queue reporting." "Interactive Intelligence enables contact centers to take a highly personalized approach to customer care," says Roger Reeves, Territory Manager of Interactive Intelligence. "The Interactive Intelligence hc1 App provides lab staff with the intelligence and tools necessary to better anticipate and exceed customer expectations." Medical laboratories have long struggled with timely access to the endless data contained in various systems spanning sales, service, and operations. In a recent poll conducted by hc1.com and G2 Intelligence, over 50% of respondents indicated that they had to log in to 4-6 different systems in order to access the information necessary to effectively do their jobs. By bringing all client activities into a central view of each provider that is available instantly, hc1.com empowers lab personnel with actionable intelligence that leads to the highest level of service.

The Interactive Intelligence hc1 App is immediately available to medical laboratories. To learn more, contact info(at)hc1.com.
