5 Things to Consider Before Hiring Through A Remote Assistant Company

A picture of a headset on a laptopMany healthcare practices employ the services of someone who can take care of additional tasks that their staff find difficult to manage. Yet it is often difficult to find the perfect hire. There may be no one located nearby, or it could be that you only need someone to work part-time. As a result, they turn to remote workers to take up the slack. This often means turning to a remote assistant company to help make contact with the right hire.

But, as with all things, not all remote assistant companies are equal. Furthermore, many of these companies cannot fulfill specific needs. Here is what you need to know before engaging the services of a remote assistant company.

Considerations Before Hiring Via A Remote Assistant Company

Their Services

When considering which remote assistant company to use, first you need to know whether they can help you achieve your aim. Does the remote assistant company offer adequate client services that meet your needs? Do they offer the administrative support you need? Are their assistants quality hires?

Their Rates and Billing Structure

You need to know whether the company you choose is budget-friendly. This means that you need to talk to someone at the company and ask for a quote before deciding to use their services. Different companies charge different rates and have different payment structures in place. At Cool Blue VA, you can make an affordable hire without signing any contracts and get billed bi-weekly. Furthermore, you only pay for the hours worked.

Location and Availability

Most remote assistant companies work with assistants from across the globe. Before hiring for a specific position, you need to make sure that the remote assistant company has assistants who can work during the hours you need them to do so.


Check the reviews! You can either talk to other healthcare professionals or check the reviews of a remote assistant company online. This will help highlight their strengths and weaknesses.

Their Ability to Support Future Needs

A healthcare practice is a business. The goal of any business is to grow. This may mean that you need to employ someone with more specialized skills further down the line.

When choosing a remote assistant company, you need to make sure that their goals align with yours and that they can supply you with someone with these skills when you need them.

The Benefits of Hiring Through A Remote Assistant Company

When deciding whether to make use of the services of a remote assistant company, keep the benefits of a virtual hire in mind. These include the following:

  • You, and your staff, will have more free time to focus on quality patient care. Furthermore, it may help prevent burnout, something common in the healthcare industry. Your hire(s) can help with a variety of tasks that include, amongst others, handling insurance claims, telephone management, scheduling, writing reports, and keeping patient data up to date.
  • Stress reduction is another thing to keep in mind, and it tends to tie in with burnout. Stress leads to all kinds of health issues, including mental health conditions. Delegating certain tasks to your remote hire takes much of this stress away. This could lead to increased overall well-being of both you and your staff.
  • A virtual hire is a significant cost-savings as compared to an in-house hire. And if the company sets up pricing per hour as we do at Cool Blue VA, you only pay for the hours worked. This could significantly cut your salary costs in the long run.
