IVR - Interactive Voice Response

An IVR allows you to send your callers into a menu.  Their calls can be routed to internal extension # or to external 10 digit phone numbers.   This is commonly used for "After Hour" messages.  This allows you to prompt the patient to press a key to be forwarded to the On-Call doctor.
