Digital Patient Experience

The key to a superior digital patient experience

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform delivers critical insight to help healthcare organizations understand and meet patient needs with better digital experiences.

The patient experience today is digital

To remain competitive, healthcare organizations large and small are focused on delivering patient experiences that satisfy patients and meet their expectations. While patient experiences will always include traditional points of care in hospitals and doctors’ offices, much of the patient experience today is a digital one. Patients use digital tools to choose a doctor, research symptoms, schedule appointments, manage post-care follow-up, handle billing, and interact with a variety of providers. To impress and retain patients, healthcare organizations must deliver a superior digital patient experience.

The medical call center is central to this digital revolution in healthcare. Call center agents may be involved in all aspects of the digital patient experience, communicating via phone, email, chat, SMS, medical portals, and other channels. By measuring and improving the quality of these interactions with patients, healthcare organizations can make enormous strides in delivering the kind of service that patients expect. That’s where CallMiner can help – with the leading conversation intelligence platform for analyzing omnichannel patient interactions at scale.

Six Trends Transforming Healthcare and Patient Experience

Improving the digital patient experience with conversation intelligence

When designing and refining digital patient experiences, healthcare organizations must know how satisfied patients are with the services provided through their healthcare contact center. Traditional measures of patient satisfaction are inadequate, sampling only a fraction of respondents and receiving responses that are typically highly polarized.

A conversation intelligence platform offers a more effective tool for managing digital patient experiences. Conversation intelligence uses AI and machine learning to determine the meaning of a speaker’s words and the emotions that drive them, converting unstructured information in conversations into structured data that can be searched and analyzed. Rather than reviewing a small portion of interactions, conversation intelligence technology enables companies to capture and analyze 100% of conversations to reveal insights that drive better outcomes. Conversation intelligence can provide post-call insight into areas of opportunity. But it can also provide real-time feedback and next-best-action guidance to help improve agent performance and increase the quality of digital patient experiences.

Frequently asked questions.

The digital patient experience is the sum of all the digital or online interactions that patients have with a healthcare organization. This can include everything from virtual medical appointments to email communications around scheduling and billing to medical portals that provide health information, organize a patient’s records, and track all aspects of the patient’s medical journey. To improve patient acquisition and retention, many healthcare organizations today have focused on improving the quality of the digital patient experience.


To enhance the digital patient experience, healthcare organizations must first understand how patients feel about their interactions with the organization and how well each point of communication serves their needs. With this insight, organizations can take measurable steps to improve patient experience at every digital touchpoint.


Conversation intelligence is a technology that’s typically used in a health care call center to capture, transcribe, categorize, analyze, and score every interaction with a patient or customer. Using AI and machine learning, a conversation intelligence platform converts the unstructured information in patient interactions into structured data that can be searched and analyzed to reveal insight into a patient’s needs, wants, opinions, and feelings about an organization.

This is the number one thing we wanted; something automated to understand the patient experience in a faster and more accurate way. Before CallMiner, we were doing patient surveys and manual quality assessments, and that just doesn’t offer the same level of actionable insights.
