Multi-Channel Contact Center and Patient Advocacy Unit
As power shifts to payers and providers, evidence-based decisions and funding channels become increasingly challenging. Payers and providers are evaluating medical devices based on safety and procedural efficacy as well as cost and value. There is an increasing need to maintain higher levels of communication with both healthcare providers and patients throughout the product experience. Knipper’s advanced Contact Center provides services including HCP detailing, HCP support, patient support, HCP and patient surveys, as well as adverse events handling and Patient Assistance Program (PAP) management.
