NORRISTOWN, Pa. – February 26, 2019  MRO, a leader in the secure, compliant and efficient exchange of Protected Health Information (PHI), announced today it won four Stevie Awards within the Customer Service category in the 13th Annual Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service.

For the third year in a row, MRO’s teams were recognized by the Stevie Awards group for providing exceptional service to two sets of customers: hospitals and health systems that partner with the company for Release of Information (ROI) services, and patients and other third-party entities that request copies of patient medical records.

The four 2019 awards are “Best Customer Satisfaction Strategy,” “Customer Service Department of the Year—Healthcare,” “Best Use of Technology in Customer Service” and “Customer Service Training Team of the Year.”

Best Customer Satisfaction Strategy

MRO’s dedicated implementation team received Silver honors for their workflow strategy to onboard new clients onto MRO’s platform and services. The strategy involves reassessing existing processes to identify gaps and make improvements where necessary, as well as creating new processes to achieve a normal state of operations efficiently and effectively for optimal client outcomes.

Customer Service Department of the Year—Healthcare

For the second year in a row, MRO’s operations team was specifically recognized as a Silver Stevie Winner for organizational cohesiveness among its two service units—a centralized National Service Center and the front-line client operations group that works at the company’s client facility sites.

Best Use of Technology in Customer Service

MRO received Silver honors for its technology solutions and platform that provide real-time reporting, tracking, communication and other tools designed to eliminate inefficiencies during interaction with live representatives.

Customer Service Training Team of the Year
With the highest Gold level of honor, MRO was recognized for its training program, which includes the online learning management system, MRO Academy, live leadership training sessions, an innovative leadership retreat, and various staff motivation and development campaigns. MRO’s “Everyday Heroes” program highlights members of our team who receive accolades from healthcare providers and their requesters of PHI, including patients, for high levels of customer care.

“We are honored to be acknowledged by the Stevie Awards program for our customer service,” said Stephen Hynes, CEO for MRO. “Over the years, MRO has gained ongoing recognition for quality, service and innovation through a variety of awards from third-party groups such as the Stevie Awards and KLAS. I am very proud that our teams are receiving this level of appreciation for their hard work and effort.”

In 2018, MRO was recognized for superior customer service with two Silver Stevie awards for “Customer Service Department of the Year” and “Customer Service Training of the Year.” In 2017, MRO’s patient advocate program received a Bronze award for “Innovation in Customer Service.”
