The healthcare industry has undeniably been the most battered sector globally because of the pandemic. While we are hoping for and working to end the pandemic, the current public health emergency has cemented the importance of a fully functioning healthcare system. The healthcare industry has been adopting medical outsourcing strategies to improve patient care and increase the efficiency of healthcare staff. 

Some of the most common roles outsourced in the medical industry are medical billing, customer support, and recruitment. There are other equally important roles that can be outsourced, and some strategies to go about the outsourcing process without compromising hospital operations.

IT administration 

Most healthcare providers have started outsourcing IT administration to ensure that utmost attention is given to the handling of critical and sensitive health records. By outsourcing IT administration, healthcare providers can focus on medical expertise and entrust their electronic data management needs to IT professionals. 

Outsourcing this critical task also comes with a downside. If data falls into the wrong hands, patients and practitioners alike may fall victim to data breaches and cybercrime. This can come about by negligence on the part of the provider or a deliberate attempt on their part. These can be prevented with the following tips. 

Medical outsourcing strategies for IT administration: 

  • Do a thorough background check on the outsourcing company and the team they will assign to handle your IT needs. Check if they have a robust privacy policy. 
  • Foster the employees’ IT hygiene and cybersecurity awareness as an internal, proactive measure in protecting their own data. 
  • Require a regular security audit to flag vulnerabilities and address issues.

Virtual assistance

With the growing acceptance and uptake of telemedicine, most doctors will consider beefing up their virtual arsenal to provide the best healthcare experience for their patients. A virtual assistant can help doctors and other medical practitioners sift through a pile of electronic health records, prescriptions, diagnoses, and other reports. Assistants that both healthcare providers and patients can reach remotely can help improve patient engagement. 

Healthcare providers can be initially apprehensive in hiring a virtual assistant to handle life-and-death matters like healthcare. The following will help improve the provider-assistant relationship. 

Medical outsourcing strategies for virtual assistance: 

  • Reputable outsourcing services providers make sure that the virtual assistants assigned to you are highly qualified professionals for the industry. But each provider has an individual style of handling patients and healthcare matters. An exhaustive orientation or education session on the industry will help your virtual assistant get up to speed. 
  • Set up an alignment mechanism with your assistants to ensure that you are on track with appointments and that you are on the same page in terms of their deliverables. 
  • Seek feedback from internal (e.g. nurses, technicians) and external stakeholders (e.g. patients, guardians of patients) that your virtual assistants interact with. 

Digital marketing

Do you need aggressive marketing efforts for an essential industry? The healthcare industry has become so noisy over the years. A clear communication plan about your vision, products, and services will put your patients and other stakeholders at ease. 

Digital marketing is a commonly outsourced function but healthcare providers may be uneasy entrusting the communication efforts of a specialized industry to non-medical professionals. Yet, outsourcing this function smartly can free your staff’s workload for more critical services. This is how you can ensure your outsourced digital marketing team delivers your story well. 

Medical outsourcing strategies for virtual assistance: 

  • Build the story you want to sell first. If you cannot figure out your healthcare narrative, there will be nothing to communicate. 
  • Take briefing sessions and downloads with your outsourced digital marketing team seriously. Carefully break down medical jargon and other technical matters.
  • Request for a periodic (e.g. monthly, quarterly) report of your digital marketing performance to determine the effectiveness of your campaigns. 

Even if COVID-19 is kept at bay, there are other life-threatening diseases to prevent or treat. A stable, well-managed healthcare system is necessary to give adequate care to all ailments. This can be doable with the right business process outsourcing services.
