10 Life Sciences Contact Center Fundamentals

What Every Life Sciences Contact Center Should Have

We’ve built a lot of life sciences contact centers and learned along the way. Here are the 10 fundamentals to building a patient or HCP-facing contact center that will perform, and what you’ll find in our contact centers.



Meet your customers (consumers and HCPs) where they are and still be able to increase volume with the same number of agents.

Integrate all communication methods (voice, email, chat, web, social, and even snail mail) for optimization.



Help reduce repetitive processes by incorporating automation, artificial intelligence (AI)-powered chatbots, and robotic process automation (RPA).

Drive resolution at less costly tiers of support to make your support staff’s job easier.


Productivity Focus

Delight your employees with operations that are automated and human-centered… frictionless.

When you automate the requests that have straightforward answers, you free up your agents to spend time with patients and HCPs on the harder-to-solve requests.


Customer Focus

Capture customer feedback after every interaction. Consumers and HCPs will tell you exactly what they need.

Zero in on trends that you want to repeat-or refine. Iterate based on feedback and report on it, so they know you are listening.


Complete Picture

Allow for a full view of both your patient and HCP customer via systems integration across your medical information systems (like Veeva Vault), IVR, CRM, and social platforms in one interface.

Enable your agents with quick access to accurate info., so they can give the best experience possible and get results.



Allow for robust reporting and analysis

Zero in on the health of your customer experience and agent performance.



Upgrade your legacy platforms to state-of-the-art, cloud-based solutions.

Seek to reduce downtime and improve KPIs – customer satisfaction, acquisition, adherence, safety, and product quality.



Provide multilingual capabilities and customer choice between automation and live agent.

Connect with customers (consumers & HCPs) by knowing the right time to offer a human touch.



Automate your outbound calling, speech recognition, call back, and product recognition to increase volume and performance.

Provide dosage reminders, collect payment or feedback, resell, or upsell.

Decrease the wait time and abandon rates.


Holistic Approach

Combine a data-driven, human-centered strategy with expertise in both healthcare and customer service, state-of-the art technology, and frictionless operations.

Your contact center solution will turn into a results-generating machine.
