Concentrix Health Practice’s team of experts helps clients automate business processes while making the most of modern communications to improve their customers’ experiences and ease of interaction.

Whatever the specific service, Concentrix Health Practice works hand in hand with clients to deliver personalized, member-centric solutions across front and back office processes. This improvement process often begins by asking the client a foundational question: What is your member/patient strategy? With that knowledge in hand, the team then assesses a client’s processes to identify what can be improved and automated—and then they work to make those improvements. “We partner with our clients to realize their strategies by providing solutions that maximize the value of every consumer interaction, while driving revenue and reducing cost,” Concentrix summarizes.

Concentrix Health Practice has the résumé needed to win clients’ trust and deliver individualized solutions. The company has provided end-to-end services specific to healthcare plans for over 13 years and earned the business of the majority of the top 10 largest health plans in the United States.

On average, the company’s healthcare practice experts have more than a quarter century of combined CRM operational and healthcare services consulting experience.

“This unique combination of hands-on expertise with strategic health industry insight allows us to assess, design and implement innovative, yet practical solutions that yield significant and measurable results,” Concentrix points out. For instance, Concentrix Health Practice improved accuracy for a leading United States healthcare provider by 25 percent. The team also increased customer self-service from 9 to 36 percent while raising customer satisfaction scores by 12 points for a top ten multi-vertical enterprise. In addition, Concentrix consultants improved enrollment and billing time to process between 10 and 20 percent for a U.S.-based non-profit healthcare payer.

To provide such game-changing results, the team focuses on three service areas:

Customer Experience – Customer experience is now a primary competitive battleground for many of Concentrix’ clients as they seek to connect with their customers, differentiate from the competition and increase brand loyalty.
