735-DOCS operators answer the call….over 60,000 times
Tarrant County residents are quickly becoming familiar with UNT Health’s 735-DOCS phone number as a resource for their health care needs. The last four month’s numbers have been tallied and analyzed… they totaled a whopping 62,514 calls. The average waiting time before speaking with a live representative was 51 seconds. Each call averaged just under three minutes, which means each staff member averaged 11.5 calls every hour. Currently, there are seven customer service representatives manning the phones and two of them are bilingual. There are also efforts underway to add additional staff and an RN Assistant Director.
