Surgery Connect reporting separates repeat callers who have hung up in the queue and called back one or more times

Repeat Caller Adjustment

Call Summary

As suggested by some customers, we have separated out repeat callers who have hung up in the queue and called back one or more times. This makes a substantial difference to the number of missed calls in some cases.

Further analysis shows many patients repeatedly join the queue in the hope of being answered quickly, but of course they are instead lengthening their wait. We recommend adding a message "Please don't hang up" once callers enter the queue. The addition of estimated wait times may also help patients on decisions as to whether to wait.

Monthly Summary

This figure is added to the Call Summary and the new Monthly Summary.

Summary by Month

New report shows a summary by month. We have included the percentage of callers hanging up in the queue that excludes repeat callers, since we believe this is a more fair representation of call handling performance.
