Enhance health care call center performance with CallMiner

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform delivers insight that enhances patient satisfaction and improves contact center performance.

The benefits of a health care call center

In an increasingly competitive industry, a health care call center can help organizations effectively engage patients, improving patient experiences and enhancing patient satisfaction. The patient’s healthcare journey today is quite complex, requiring greater coordination of care and clearer communication to achieve optimal outcomes. By centralizing communication with patients on everything from scheduling and billing to prescription refills and follow-up care, a contact center in a healthcare organization can improve patient service while increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

Perhaps the most significant benefit of a health care call center is its ability to drive patient satisfaction. Contact centers are where most patient conversations take place and where patients feel most free to express their honest opinion. With the right technology for capturing this information and converting it to insight, health care call centers provide organizations with invaluable data that can drive improvement in business performance as well as the patient experience journey. That’s where the CallMiner Eureka platform can provide enormous value.

How conversation intelligence improves health care call center performance

Health care call centers are increasingly turning to conversation intelligence in their efforts to improve the patient experience in healthcare interactions and enhance revenue cycle management. A conversation intelligence platform like CallMiner Eureka uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze every conversation between a patient and a health care call center. Conversation intelligence technology captures and analyzes voice interactions as well as text-based conversations via email, chat, SMS, web, social media, and medical portals. By transforming the unstructured information in these interactions into structured data that can be aggregated and analyzed, conversation intelligence technology can extract meaningful insights about the needs, desires, and expectations of an entire patient base.

With the insight gleaned from conversation intelligence, healthcare organizations can gain a deeper understanding of ways to improve patient experiences and drive greater satisfaction. And they can optimize performance of their health care call centers to better serve patients while reducing costs and improving performance.
