Hi, I’m Brian.

2

00:00:03,780 –> 00:00:05,940

I’m here with Kim MacTavish, Senior Vice President

3

00:00:05,940 –> 00:00:07,336

of Customer Services.

4

00:00:07,336 –> 00:00:08,710

Kim, it’s great to have you here.

5

00:00:08,710 –> 00:00:10,084

Thank you so much for joining us.

6

00:00:10,084 –> 00:00:11,580

Thank you for having me, Brian.

7

00:00:11,580 –> 00:00:15,000

So how is support at MEDHOST a differentiator

8

00:00:15,000 –> 00:00:17,130

for the organization?

9

00:00:17,130 –> 00:00:20,610

I would say, because we provide an experience for the customer.

10

00:00:20,610 –> 00:00:22,950

While it’s important for us to measure the customer

11

00:00:22,950 –> 00:00:25,860

satisfaction through a transaction,

12

00:00:25,860 –> 00:00:29,880

ultimately if we want to maintain customers,

13

00:00:29,880 –> 00:00:34,140

that experience that we provide to the customer

14

00:00:34,140 –> 00:00:36,590

provides a huge value to MEDHOST.

15

00:00:36,590 –> 00:00:40,080

There’s a lot of transparency that we have with our customer

16

00:00:40,080 –> 00:00:42,510

support that’s not typical in the industry.

17

00:00:42,510 –> 00:00:43,510

That is correct.

18

00:00:43,510 –> 00:00:44,490

It is not typical.

19

00:00:44,490 –> 00:00:47,520

It’s not standard for other competitors

20

00:00:47,520 –> 00:00:49,650

to provide the level of communication

21

00:00:49,650 –> 00:00:54,150

we do to our customers related to key performance indicators,

22

00:00:54,150 –> 00:00:58,710

as well as some of the health metrics that we do monitor.

23

00:00:58,710 –> 00:01:03,810

And while we believe whether we succeed or we’re not

24

00:01:03,810 –> 00:01:06,090

doing so great, that information is

25

00:01:06,090 –> 00:01:08,460

important to share out with our customers,

26

00:01:08,460 –> 00:01:11,770

and ensure that they understand the level of experience they

27

00:01:11,770 –> 00:01:12,960

are receiving.

28

00:01:12,960 –> 00:01:15,590

And it also holds us to a high level of accountability

29

00:01:15,590 –> 00:01:16,960

as well.

30

00:01:16,960 –> 00:01:22,035

Now you mentioned that we have a 96% customer satisfaction,

31

00:01:22,035 –> 00:01:25,820

and 82% first day resolve.

32

00:01:25,820 –> 00:01:28,670

What do you attribute to that success?

33

00:01:28,670 –> 00:01:32,420

Ownership is key to how we operate.

34

00:01:32,420 –> 00:01:36,410

And the fact that people not only own themselves, but own

35

00:01:36,410 –> 00:01:40,790

the customers, they are focused on putting their best

36

00:01:40,790 –> 00:01:42,380

foot forward.

37

00:01:42,380 –> 00:01:47,780

Which in turn, has them put every effort forward

38

00:01:47,780 –> 00:01:50,390

to create that level of experience.

39

00:01:50,390 –> 00:01:53,510

I will say that all of our resources,

40

00:01:53,510 –> 00:01:55,150

no matter what level they function in

41

00:01:55,150 –> 00:01:57,650

within customer support, are all held

42

00:01:57,650 –> 00:01:59,900

accountable to the same metrics.

43

00:01:59,900 –> 00:02:04,160

And on an individual basis, on a team basis, as well as

44

00:02:04,160 –> 00:02:07,000

the entire leadership team, including myself,

45

00:02:07,000 –> 00:02:10,740

are accountable to ensuring those metrics on that.

46

00:02:10,740 –> 00:02:13,250

So why are the services that your team provides

47

00:02:13,250 –> 00:02:16,920

so valuable to our customers?

48

00:02:16,920 –> 00:02:22,500

I believe that addressing customer issues in real time

49

00:02:22,500 –> 00:02:24,810

as quick as we can, as promptly as we

50

00:02:24,810 –> 00:02:28,980

can, with a holistic experience, really allows

51

00:02:28,980 –> 00:02:32,110

our customers to get back to what they do best.

52

00:02:32,110 –> 00:02:33,690

Which is caring for their patients,

53

00:02:33,690 –> 00:02:36,720

and for their communities, and managing their business

54

00:02:36,720 –> 00:02:38,197

operations well.

55

00:02:38,197 –> 00:02:39,780

Kim, thank you so much for being here.

56

00:02:39,780 –> 00:02:41,860

57
