Memorial Healthcare System (MHS) needed to restructure their call center, improve caller experience, and achieve their five-year goal for a digital front door. MHS operated 12 separate on-premise contact centers—each having separate owners, processes, and with little to no integration. Talkdesk was a natural solution with its Epic EHR integration. After going live within a month, Talkdesk automated caller identification and offered a more comprehensive view of callers for agents. Callers enjoy a less frustrating and more personalized call experience because agents have a head start with patient records in a streamlined desktop view. Agents don’t have to ask callers for the same questions or information they’ve already given through the interactive voice response (IVR).

"In less than a year, Talkdesk has changed our outdated call center to a modern cloud experience that identifies actionable insights. We have consolidated 12 call centers into one Patient Access Center, and since February 2021, we've seen huge gains in key metrics: cut our initial abandonment rate by 3X, increased our service level by 30%, and seen improvements in other areas, including average speed to answer, average handle time, and IVR optimization (time to queue). Historically, we couldn't measure anything, and now we're measuring everything."
