“Our needs are immediate, and the ability to benefit from the hc1 platform in a matter of weeks rather than months or years was an important aspect of our decision,” - Jennifer Blair, Castle Medical Director of Operations
Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) September 11, 2014
Due to its rapidly expanding client base and strong foothold in the ultra competitive pain management specialty area, Castle Medical recently doubled its business development force to include almost 100 sales representatives nationwide.
“As any high growth organization can relate to, our success has bred its fair share of operational challenges,” says Castle Medical President of Sales Rob Mitchell. “The process of tracking business opportunities and client concerns via Excel spreadsheets and email messages ultimately breaks down, and we realized that our future livelihood depended on getting ahead of the curve in the way we serve our clients.”
After evaluating several general customer relationship management (CRM) tools, the Castle Medical team determined that it needed a lab-specific healthcare CRM solution provided by a partner that is intimately familiar with the healthcare industry.
“hc1.com is the only comprehensive healthcare relationship management solution on the planet designed to meet the unique needs of health systems and labs,” says hc1.com Founder and CEO Brad Bostic. “By combining healthcare CRM, real-time analytics, and secure collaboration, the hc1 Healthcare Relationship Cloud™ empowers lab staff members to identify the highest priority issues and drive closed-loop accountability resulting in outstanding service levels for clients and efficient internal operations. For high growth independent lab companies like Castle, this results in higher retention rates and more new client wins by delivering a truly personalized experience to providers and their patients.”
“Our needs are immediate, and the ability to benefit from the hc1 platform in a matter of weeks rather than months or years was an important aspect of our decision,” adds Castle Medical Director of Operations Jennifer Blair. “Rather than spending our valuable time and resources to switch out our LIS which only impacts internal clinical processes, we knew that immediately leveraging the data housed in our existing LIS and other business systems would help us accelerate our expansion by engaging and personalizing the experience with the providers and patients we serve.”
