MCFARLAND, Wisconsin – February 18, 2021 — 1Call, a division of Amtelco, today announced that Amtelco has been granted a U.S. patent for “Auditing Communication Sessions.” The patentable element is Amtelco’s systems and methods for auditing communication sessions. 

Existing call center systems only allow rudimentary forms of call auditing and are limited to a single method (e.g., listening to the communication session in mute-mode). If the communication occurs via text message, web chat, or electronic mail, call center managers are unable to audit the communication session. 

“The ability to audit different types of communication sessions helps to ensure that a patient’s experience with the hospital call center is satisfactory. A good patient experience is critical for both patients and a healthcare organization,” said Amtelco and 1Call President Tom Curtin.

Amtelco’s improved auditing enables hospital call center supervisors to audit communications from different platforms to help ensure a satisfactory patient experience. In the healthcare industry, patients are asked to provide information about their care experience with a hospital via the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey. Unacceptable survey outcomes can result in hospitals losing some reimbursements.
