A Patient Service Representative is a person who is in charge of booking medical appointments and calling individuals to remind them of their meetings. They keep patients informed about setbacks or longer waits so they can be seen on time, and they update their data at each appointment. A patient services specialist is a customer service professional who works in a healthcare facility and gathers data from patients before hospital appointments and answers billing inquiries. They operate at the front desk of a medical facility, where they interact with patients verbally and in writing. Entering data for sick people into electronic health records, enrolling, planning, and re-scheduling clients for initial consultations and follow-ups, notifying patients over the mobile or handling documents in-person to obtain data about the patient’s past therapies and other historical clinical records, including medicines and surgery history, responding health questions about invoicing and payouts, and monitoring patients are some of the daily duties of a patient service rep.
