Human-Powered IT Help Desk with 24x7 Full-Service Support

Keep Calm and Trust Our Help Desk to Handle the Surge

The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine has caused an explosion in patient call volume for appointment scheduling. CTG has a flexible, highly scalable solution to support these spikes in scheduling volume, while adhering to all rules and regulations. Our high-touch and cost-effective approach provides your patients with immediate access to the information and support they need without further taxing your internal teams.

For a government client, CTG stood up a call center capable of handling 3,000 contacts a day in less than 1 month from initial call until go-live, and on-boarded and trained 60 agents in just 10 days from contract signing. This project included complete COVID-19 “Notify” Tracking, which traces and reduces the spread of COVID-19.

Another CTG client, an academic medical center on the west coast, experienced a huge spike in patient calls—up to 15,000 a month—when they pivoted to telehealth due to COVID-19. CTG was able to help them handle a:

  • 57% increase in contacts
  • 1,772% increase in telehealth-related calls

Despite the increase in call volume and complexity, the team has continued to meet all SLAs:

  • First-level resolution rates: 99.9%
  • Abandonment rate: 0.7% after 30 seconds threshold
  • Calls answered within 30 seconds: 92.1%
  • Contacts Processed: 7-11K contacts per month over the past 12 months

    IT Help Desk

    We are your end users’ single point of contact. We understand that the more we increase our first level resolution (FLR), the more value we provide to you. We thoroughly document each issue to ensure seamless communication across departments and to facilitate improved FLR, and contribute to a knowledge base to improve future support. These scalable, multi-level services are delivered according to defined services plans, with mutually agreed upon service level agreements (SLAs). Our support includes:

For healthcare organizations, we provide Tier 1.5 Clinical Service Desk support to resolve EHR issues for clinical users. CTG’s analysts receive vendor-specific training in industry-leading EHR systems, resulting in improved FCR and lower average talk times compared to the industry average. The higher FLR rate in turn allows our clients to focus their attention on more critical organizational IT regulatory and optimization efforts and a lower average talk time allows your clinicians to return to patient care faster. Our services integrate seamlessly with your workflows and physician environment. Our experts can also assist with patient portal and telehealth application support.
