Serve the Patient

At PPS, we strive to provide great customer service to patients and their care givers each and every time. Our service involves visiting patients in their home or health facility and providing them with the prescribed oxygen equipment or sleep therapy equipment. To ensure that they can successfully and safely use their therapy, PPS staff provide thorough education and instruction to the patient or caregiver to ensure that they understand the equipment and the doctor’s orders. Everything is thoroughly document and the required paperwork is completed in order to bill the insurance company.

Many field staff say that visiting patients is the favorite part of their job. Bringing a smile to someone’s face, and helping them live a fulfilling and healthy life can provide a great sense of purpose, and these customer focused staff excel at PPS.

With the customer is mind, PPS always has a member of staff on call to assist patient’s in need, such as through trouble shooting equipment over the phone, or visiting the patient in an emergency.

Serve the Healthcare Provider

Healthcare providers, including physicians and their staff, hospital case managers and sleep labs, trust PPS to care for their patients, and are core to our business. Our staff foster these relationships by working to save healthcare providers time and effort, visiting patients in the home, simplifying paperwork, facilitating pulse oximetry testing, coordinating sleep studies, and solving problems.

Serve Each Other

Team work is a core value at PPS. We work together to serve the patients and health care providers by ensuring that we communicate with each other continually and fully. Whether it is ensuring that every account has appropriate notes of action taken, or a phone call to a teammate who needs to visit a patient, we ensure that we are serving each other with the same level of commitment and positive attitude that we show to our patients.

Field staff are supported by an array of staff who work behind the scenes. This includes Human Resources, Information Technology, Compliance, Finance, Training, and other administrative services. We are always working to find ways to support the PPS team and to serve our patients and healthcare providers better.
