High Touch, Dedicated Call Center Provides Superior Patient Services Brand Challenge A leading manufacturer was using multiple vendors for patient support services for its medication. Triplefin was selected to consolidate these services for purposes of eliminating intervention from other service providers and ultimately improving the patient experience. A high touch, dedicated call center solution was designed to streamline benefit verification and prior authorization processing, as well as patient savings and patient assistance support. Triplefin Solution Over sixteen weeks, Triplefin implemented a comprehensive project plan to migrate complex operations from multiple vendors, including the consolidation of numerous customer service phone lines. Customized technology applications were architected to maintain a variety of patient support functions. A high touch, dedicated call center solution was designed to streamline benefit verification and prior authorization processing, as well as patient savings and patient assistance support. Specialists were hired for their critical thinking, active listening and problem solving skill sets. They were trained to follow strict quality assurance standards to provide the highest level of service to patients and/or their caregivers. Patient support specialists were also trained on the intricacies of the manufacturer’s program, which included disease state training from a physician and enhanced empathy training to align with the patient journey through recovery. The dedicated call center allowed for more personalized, concierge-level assistance for inbound and outbound calling programs and case management. Adverse event and product complaint calls were managed to manufacturer specifications coupled with Triplefin’s quality assurance oversight. A patient-centric model ensured that each patient was provided one point of contact who was well versed on the brand’s program, and that every call was customized to the patient’s needs. Within the the first nine months of the program, the client reported a significant increase in call volume. The brand team reported increased patient days on therapy and additional engagement with those in the support program. By consolidating these services with Triplefin, the manufacturer experienced streamlined operations that enhanced patient adherence.
