Check Out How Our VoIP/Unified Communications Solution Helps Chesapeake Potomac Home Health Agency In Southern Maryland
The team at Kyocera Intelligence recently helped Chesapeake Potomac Home Health Agency in Hughesville, Maryland, transition from their premised-based phone solution to the Kyocera Intelligence Elevate Unified Communications solution.
What Problems Were Solved By Using Our Solution?
As a healthcare provider that receives and makes around 2,000 calls each week, reliable communication is essential for Chesapeake Potomac Home Health Agency. They were experiencing the following issues with their business phone system:
- The phone server was getting old and outdated. They needed a communications solution to improve the productivity of their employees without having to make a large capital expenditure for a new system.
- They had little to no support. Getting in touch with somebody to help was tough.
- As a medical provider, receiving and making calls to patients, referring doctors/pharmacies, and communicating internally was vital. Power outages and other issues with their phone system caused loss of use, which meant a loss of business and revenue.
Renee Forsee, the Practice Administrator at Chesapeake Potomac Home Health Agency, says it all…
Before Kyocera Intelligence Elevate:
“When the power went out, our phone system also went out; including when we had internet issues. We were unable to use secure fax without purchasing from a separate 3rd-party vendor.
Those costs begin with a minimum and increase depending on volume. We would have reached the minimum in one day of use. The inability to use an intercom system slowed down response to internal and external customer service. Not to mention the cost for the phone lines!”
After Kyocera Intelligence Elevate:
“Today, with Kyocera Intelligence Elevate, we’ve had a significant decrease in dropped or unanswered calls. This has improved our vendor and internal/external customer service and satisfaction.
We’re also able to use a secure fax now without having to purchase that service separately through a 3rd-party vendor. This is saving us both time and money. The application is user-friendly and doesn’t require that employees log in to special consoles just to forward their phone calls. We use a ‘hunting’ tree for calls.
Before Kyocera Intelligence Elevate, many of our calls were lost or dropped. The new system has significantly decreased this problem. And, if the power goes out, we just send or receive calls from the mobile app that came with this system!”
