A VIRTUOUS CIRCLE OF ACCURATE RESPONSE & INSIGHTFUL FEEDBACK
As your frontline representative, each medical communications team member adds value as a brand ambassador, armed with the right level of experience and training for the type of inquiries they receive—whether they’re speaking with health care providers, family members, or the patients themselves. PPD completes the communication loop by providing you with feedback and insights that help you improve service and build loyalty.
DELIVERING EXCELLENCE IN MEDICAL COMMUNICATIONS ON A GLOBAL SCALE
As a global leader of medical information contact centers, PPD provides local, regional, and global solutions customized to meet each client’s needs. PPD’s reach extends to 10 countries, with agents speaking 18 languages.
Effective communication worldwide requires more than language mastery. While the language capabilities of PPD’s medical communications team are third-party verified, their fluency also extends to local culture and health care systems. Their knowledge of the local culture frequently comes from direct experience living and working in the countries they serve.
The ability to speak those three “languages” leads to more successful communication, greater clarity and empathy for the patients, their caregivers and family members.
