Improving performance in healthcare contact centers

Drive patient satisfaction, business improvement, and contact center performance with the CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform.

The rise of the contact center in the healthcare industry

Contact centers are quickly becoming indispensable to healthcare organizations seeking to improve outcomes and increase patient satisfaction. As the healthcare industry becomes more complex, contact centers in healthcare organizations can help to coordinate care more effectively by centralizing patient communications. Using specially trained agents to interact with patients can enhance the patient experience while simplifying communication around scheduling, billing, prescription refills, and follow-up care.

To optimize the performance of contact centers in healthcare delivery, organizations need technology that can accomplish three things:

• Analyze patient conversations at scale to gain insight into their needs, wants, and expectations.

• Deliver real-time feedback and next-best-action guidance to help agents deliver better customer experiences.

• Provide real-time metrics and feedback that can help agents and supervisors improve performance, increase efficiency, and adhere to healthcare call center best practices.

CallMiner Eureka offers a solution that can help contact centers in healthcare organizations achieve these objectives – and much more.
