Why Use a Medical Answering Service and How Does it Work?
When your patients require emergency medical care (regardless of how your practice defines urgent care), we know that every second counts. This is why your medical answering service, whether it is a clinic answering service or a hospital answering service, needs to be on top of its game.
That’s why you use Medical Answering Service.Ai. Our team can immediately tell which calls need an immediate response and will instantly pass them on to the relevant medical professional. It’s always done within a few seconds so they have access to the care they need.
You don’t need to worry if there is no answer. We will ensure that the patient is passed on to the next healthcare provider on the call list given to us. This minimizes the risk of dangerous delays in their care. We understand the urgency that comes with medical emergencies, and we know that patient care is always at the top of your list.
In the case of non-emergency calls, we will forward them to the correct medical answering service in your practice so they can be picked up during regular office hours. Non-urgent medical appointments, patient questions about health insurance, and any other administrative tasks are just some examples of incoming calls that don’t need to be forwarded to medical providers right away.
What happens to those non-emergency calls? Well, our answering service will bundle them up and have them delivered the next working day. This allows you to go through them in your own time while also ensuring that you’re not bothered by non-emergencies out of hours.
We understand the healthcare industry like the back of our hand, and this is why differentiating between urgent and non-urgent calls for your medical practice is so simple for us. No matter what patient calls request, we are likely to be familiar with their needs and are experienced in properly handling them.
You don’t need to be concerned with any potential human error or delay that comes with other medical answering services because we are automated and ensure that patient calls are sorted and put through in mere seconds.
It gives your patients peace of mind, you confidence, and ultimately provides you with an answering service that you can trust.

The healthcare industry is already so expensive, especially when you are maintaining medical practices and doctors offices. If you add unreliable billing for answering services on top of that, it just adds more stress that takes away from your patients and that’s the last thing we want.
When I switched to No More Phone Tag, I was mainly frustrated with the outrageous cost of my old service. I thought that an automated service would not be as patient-friendly, but I wanted to see if it would still work. Well, was I surprised? It turns out that my patients like No More Phone Tag better than my old “live” service. Why? Because it’s quicker, they know that I get the complete message, and I’m able to get back to them quickly. When my patients call me after hours with an urgent medical issue, they want to talk to the doctor, not to some call center person that has no medical expertise.
