The three keys to quality customer service: opening the doors to exceptional performance



The three keys to quality customer service: opening the doors to exceptional performance



Clinical Leadership and Management Review 16(4): 249-252

This commitment is expressed to customers by an adherence to six customer-friendly processes and by personnel who possess a high level of skill in the behaviors that make up customer service. When these three requirements are met, laboratorians not only maintain a competitive edge but also fulfill their mission as health-care professionals.
