Improving Data Integrity and Establishing Efficient Workflows
America’s Pharmacy Source was looking for a CRM that allowed them to provide efficient, innovative customer service management to track and report on patients and their interactions with the customer service team. SpiceCSM was able to deliver a solution that guides agents through calls as well as, integrates and manages their data, all while keeping customer information secure and private. The solution provided a simple to use interface that bridges the gaps between the various systems their agents need to interact with.
Unified User Interface
SpiceCSM is able to provide agents with an intuitive workflow by securely integrating multiple platforms into one interface. America’s Pharmacy Source integrated their patient records with their telephony system to make it easier to validate records. When a patient calls in to customer service, their data is retrieved from a matching contact record and presented to the agent automatically. The agent is also, on the same screen, guided through how to handle the call and prompted to enter relevant information about what the patient is reaching out for. This would include anything from general patient information to specific medicine or support details.
Workflow Engine and Process Automation
SpiceCSM worked with America’s Pharmacy Source team to design workflows and automate processes for their most common call drivers. This would include automating various background tasks on behalf of the agent, for example, retrieving patient information or filing patient reports. Background tasks automatically retrieve prescription details when they refill a prescription. During service calls, there are user-guidance prompts presented to the agent that walk them through how to handle the call while automatically taking notes on the interaction. Transactions are automatically processed through the integrated pharmacy management and billing system. For the end-user, this simplifies interactions and makes them less prone to error. In addition to this, many interactions are automatically classified for the agents to ensure that reporting is accurate and further reducing the agents’ tedious tasks.
A vital component of any process for the America’s Pharmacy Source team, was maintaining HIPAA compliance. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was put in place in 1996 to protect sensitive patient health information. The SpiceCSM platform ensures that agent workflows maintain adherence to HIPAA standards by obfuscating, encrypting, and safeguarding sensitive information.
SpiceCSM provides America’s Pharmacy Source with a CRM powered by intelligent workflow, integration, and automation. When a patient calls in, the databases are queried to see if the person calling is already in the system. If they are, the system will pull all specified information and display it to the agent. If they are not, a new record is created to fill in the patient’s details. A case is also automatically created to track that interaction. Agents are given access to specific subsets of cases based on their role, so multiple groups can work within the same system easily while maintaining compliance.
SpiceCSM enables all manner of systems to be connected to the platform, creating a more intelligent CRM. America’s Pharmacy Source leverages several integrations with order fulfillment, payment processing, and recording software. The integrations with these systems were crucial to creating a complete solution for agents to assist pharmacy customers with almost any issue. Telephony integrations allow for contact matching as well as self serve IVRs for patients to leverage when they simply need a refill on their prescription. Depending on the origin of the call, Spice will initiate the specific agent workflow that aligns with that call type.
Another key integration is with a payment processing solution that protects the privacy of patient payment information. This third-party product can be engaged as part of agent workflow, and will tokenize payment information to prevent unauthorized use. This in conjunction with an integration to their call recording software to pause and restart recordings ensure compliance is maintained.
America’s Pharmacy Source also choose to integrate PrimeRx, a pharmacy solution and order fulfillment system, to pull in patient information and provide additional guidance and workflows to process that information. PrimeRx serves as the main tool for the Pharmacy staff to fill and process orders. By integrating, agents are able to get insight on both current and past orders to better assist the patients calling in.
Working with SpiceCSM to design their Integrated CRM solution has provided America’s Pharmacy Source with a multitude of benefits. They were able to combine data and functions from other critical systems and overlay everything on a single platform for ease of use and advanced process management. SpiceCSM provided the perfect combination of plug and play, customizable software. With the low code, drag and drop Process Editor, America’s Pharmacy Source is able to enhance and make changes to the workflow as they adapt and expand their business.
