Healthcare Provider Saves More Than $1,000 on First Day with VPI's VirtualSource Agents™

Customer: Healthcare Provider

Industry: Health Care

 

A Medicaid HMO Healthcare Provider wanted to reduce the amount of “no shows” for non-emergency transportation pick-ups. On the first day of implementation, VPI VirtualSource saved the Healthcare Provider more than $1,000 by avoiding “no shows.”

Challenge

A Medicaid HMO Healthcare Provider wanted to reduce the amount of “no shows” for non-emergency transportation pick-ups. Each trip costs the Healthcare Provider $35. 

Solution

VPI's VirtualSource Virtual Call Agents make an outbound call to patients scheduled for pick-ups and confirm that the patient still needs transportation. Previously, live agents made some calls to confirm transportation pick-ups, but were unable to reach all patients.
