A Suite of Services For Your Practice
Comprehensive Patient Mystery Shopping
We objectively evaluate and thoroughly narrate a complete visit to your practice by sending in trained mystery shoppers (based on the criteria that you specify)
as if they were either new potential patients, or existing patients. The steps can include some or all of the following:
1) The shopper calls to make an appointment (depending on applicable local, state and federal regulations, this call can be recorded for you to hear - see below);
details are noted (such as date/time of call, who answered, was the shopper put on hold and for how long, etc.) and an appointment is made.
2) The shopper then visits the designated location to ascertain how the staff deals with him/her as a patient (including the front office staff, the clinical staff,
the doctors/dentists and billing staff).
3) The timing of the experience can be a critical factor for some patients - our shoppers are trained to time each segment of their visit.
4) Included in the report are the shopper's impressions of facility cleanliness (external and internal, including restroom) and ambiance.
5) Pictures tell a story - under certain circumstances, these can be provided for visual confirmation of the good, or bad, aspects of the experience.
Based on the protocol that you want followed, ACL gives you the information you need to determine the level of compliance by your staff regarding standard
procedures. Further, accolades and other awards based on shop scores can be an incentive to those employees who exemplify the highest level of professionalism.
Telephone Mystery Shopping
A great, cost-effective option to ensure that phone protocol and scheduling procedures are followed, this type of mystery shopping is a valuable adjunct to the
comprehensive office visit. Depending on applicable local, state and federal regulations, ACL facilitates the recording of the actual telephone interaction
between your staff and the mystery shopper, allowing you to see whether your practice is creating a fantastic or a less than favorable first impression on your
prospective and current patients.
A great way to keep in touch with the pulse of new and existing patients is to give them a means to tell you what they think. As a third party provider, A Closer
Look offers patients the opportunity to reveal their true perceptions regarding your practice, including the staff, office environment and treatment they
receive. ACL compiles the data and makes available a full reporting analysis over time.
