3 things to look for in a home health care answering service
Home health care centers provide skilled nursing services to patients in the comfort of their own homes.
It’s often the more affordable option when it comes to long-term medical care. Medical staff providing clinical care and therapeutic services at home health centers are often under severe pressure due to the associated workload and level of care required.
A home health care answering service takes the pressure off permanently, when there is an overflow, or during holidays and after-hours. Sunshine Communication Services, Inc.’s highly-skilled call center agents receive calls and redirect them accordingly. They are trained to know who to contact when it’s an emergency and when it’s not, and they send non-urgent information to the relevant people via email, text, fax, or voicemail.
Sunshine Communication Services, Inc. has been in the business of supplying the best professional healthcare answering service since 1975. We’ve put together a list of three things to look for when choosing a home health center answering service.

We know an answering service is only as good as its front line and our well trained customer service representatives are subsequently the best in the business. Ensure that when you choose an answering service you look for a company that employs educated, multilingual staff.
