Healthcare Contact Center

Enhancing experiences through a healthcare contact center

Ensure better patient experiences with the CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform.

How healthcare contact centers affect patient satisfaction

Improving patient satisfaction with healthcare services is a top priority for healthcare organizations large and small. As competition for patients increases, organizations must focus on delivering exceptional experiences to attract and retain patients. When patients are dissatisfied with the service they receive from one provider, they can easily find a new doctor, choose a different hospital, or cross the street to fill prescriptions at a competing pharmacy.

Healthcare contact centers play a critical role in delivering better patient service. From assisting patients with scheduling appointments and finding specialists to refilling prescriptions and coordinating follow-up care, healthcare contact center agents are involved in a large percentage of a patient’s interactions with a healthcare organization.

To enable healthcare contact centers to better understand and improve each patient’s experience, CallMiner offers an industry-leading conversation intelligence platform that delivers a wealth of insight for increasing patient satisfaction and enhancing contact center performance.

Six Trends Transforming Healthcare and Patient Experience

How conversation intelligence transforms a healthcare contact center

To deliver better patient experiences, organizations must first understand how patients feel about the interactions they have with healthcare providers and contact centers in healthcare organizations. Traditional methods for collecting data such as sample-based surveys and manual call listening are too limited to deliver an accurate picture and too time-consuming to provide real-time insights.

Conversation intelligence offers a better approach. Conversation intelligence technology uses AI and machine learning to capture and analyze 100% of conversations with patients that take place via phone, email, chat, social media, web, SMS, and medical portals. By transforming the unstructured information in these exchanges into structured data that can be categorized, analyzed, and scored, a conversation intelligence platform provides organizations with real-time insight into the needs, opinions, and expectations of their patient base.

With this data, organizations can identify opportunities for improvement and take swift action to enhance patient experiences, ultimately driving greater patient satisfaction.

Frequently asked questions.

The patient experience is the sum of a patient’s interactions with a healthcare organization. A patient’s experience may encompass everything from the first point of contact through finding a doctor, making appointments, receiving care, managing follow-up, and other interactions.


A healthcare contact center is a department or organization that’s responsible for much of the communication between healthcare providers and payers and their patients and customers. Healthcare contact center agents may take phone calls from patients or communicate via chat, email, SMS, and medical portals.


Healthcare contact centers can help to deliver better patient experiences in two ways. By effectively helping patients to make appointments, communicate with providers, resolve billing issues, and get the information they need, healthcare contact center agents have a direct impact on patients’ satisfaction with services provided. Contact centers are also an excellent source of information about the patient’s experience. Using conversation intelligence technology to capture and analyze 100% of patient conversations, healthcare contact centers can cultivate insight into the wants, opinions, and expectations of patients, which ultimately allows the organization to better understand and meet their patients’ needs.
