UHealthSolutions is an innovative and unique health care consulting and management organization. We offer our clients a wide range of program management and consulting services to improve quality, maximize revenue, and reduce costs.
Under the general direction of the Contact Center Supervisor, the Team Leader is responsible for monitoring activity within the contact center and assigning work to Member Service Representatives (MSRs) in order to ensure that service level standards and productivity standards are met on a consistent basis. The Team Leader will also handle escalated calls and provide assistance to MSRs with regard to complex call types. In absence of the Supervisor, the Team Leader may be asked to assume full responsibility for directing work activity within the contact center. Also, as needed, the Team Leader will perform various functions of the MSR role in order to mitigate high volume and/or absences among MSRs.
UHealthSolutions maintains expansive hours of operation which span multiple shifts, 7 days per week, including holidays. In order to ensure appropriate coverage across all hours of operation, the Team Leader role is designed to provide a layer of oversight supplemental to that of Supervisors and Managers. While the Team Leader will provide input regarding hiring, performance feedback, and disciplinary action, any decisions in these areas will continue to be the responsibility of the Supervisors and Managers.
