Why a VoIP System is Perfect for Medical Offices

medical office telephonesVoice over Internet Protocol can help medical offices boost their service to the next level. Medical offices have unique needs and VoIP Systems can be custom-tailored in order to provide the best services for different offices. It’s an easy-to-implement, efficient and hassle-free communications system that helps to smooth out the medical practice workflow. It’s also scalable, so the system can keep up with your practice as you continue to grow. Here are a number of features that make VoIP a great choice for medical practices.

Inbound Fax to Email
You can ditch your hard copy fax machine and automatically get all inbound faxes delivered to your email inbox. That way you can handle all your communications electronically, which both frees up space in your office and also ensures that papers don’t get lost or misfiled.

Easier Call Direction
VoIP offers a service called Caller ID Prefix, which means that your reception department will be able to see on the phone which specific number the caller dialed. That way you will be sure that the staff can direct the call appropriately and keep response times down.

Call Routing
You can set up call routing so that calls ring to multiple extensions or numbers. This means that you can have your desk phone and cell phone ring simultaneously, a very helpful function if you do a lot of moving around the office or want to take calls when you’re out of the office.

Voicemail to Email
When patients leave a voicemail, the VoIP system will send it to your email as a WAV audio file. This helps to ensure that you have a record of the patient’s message and can respond to it quickly and efficiently.

These are just some of the features that a VoIP System can introduce into your office. Having the right phone system is key to providing excellent service and maximizing the efficiency of your medical practice. Get in touch with us to find out more about setting up a VoIP System in your office!
