Hospital Call Center

Enhancing patient experience in the hospital call center

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform offers insights that can drive better experiences, outcomes, and patient satisfaction.

Hospital call centers are vital to the patient experience

In a healthcare landscape that is highly competitive and rapidly evolving, the patient experience in hospitals is a critical point of differentiation. Patients today have more choice than ever before about where to seek care, and negative patient experiences can adversely impact patient retention and referrals.

As hospitals work at improving patient satisfaction, the hospital call center can be an invaluable resource in delivering exceptional services and gaining insight into the needs and expectations of patients. Hospital call centers are involved in communications throughout the patient journey as agents help with scheduling, billing, refilling prescriptions, and coordinating follow-up care. With the right patient experience software, hospital call centers make these interactions as helpful and efficient as possible, driving greater patient satisfaction. Call centers can also analyze conversations to gain deeper insight into patients’ concerns, opinions, and expectations.

The CallMiner Eureka platform provides conversation intelligence technology that enables hospital call centers to easily achieve both objectives – and much more.

The benefits of conversation intelligence

Conversation intelligence is a technology that leverages AI and machine learning to capture, analyze, and reveal deep insights from conversations between patients and agents in a health care call center. CallMiner’s conversation intelligence solution automatically analyzes and scores 100% of conversations with patients across all channels – phone, chat, email, web, SMS, social media, and medical portals. For voice conversations, CallMiner Eureka’s speech-to-text engine determines both the meaning of the words in a conversation and the emotion with which they are spoken, revealing greater insight into the drivers of patients’ behavior and needs.

With these insights gained through the hospital call center, healthcare organizations can better understand patients’ expectations for their care experiences and take steps to improve patient satisfaction. Conversation intelligence can also help to improve the performance of agents with real-time feedback and next-best-action suggestions. And with analytics that reveal areas for opportunities for improvement in operations, conversation intelligence can also drive greater efficiency and reduce costs in the call center.

Elements of the Eureka platform include:

• Analyze. As mission control for conversation intelligence, CallMiner Analyze is a customizable dashboard that makes it easier to automatically score 100% of interactions across all channels. Analyze transcribes speaker-separated text, categorizes content, and scores each conversation with automated metrics that track performance and emotion across the patient journey.

• RealTime. To improve agent performance and the outcomes of interactions, CallMiner RealTime automatically notifies agents or supervisors when indicators suggest a patient is at risk of churn or needs immediate medical attention.

• Coach. CallMiner Coach enhances hospital call center performance by empowering supervisors to focus on areas that will drive improvement in agent performance and customer experiences. Coach reveals behavioral insight for every voice and text-based interaction and enables supervisors to identify trends, target behavior for guidance or reinforcement, and build a culture of improvement within the call center.

• Visualize. To help organizations gain greater insight from data, CallMiner Visualize makes it easy to explore analytics data visually through shareable presentations. Visualize reveals both the big picture as well as the details of agent performance, customer behavior, process challenges, and other root cause indicators.

• Redact. CallMiner Redact helps protect patient privacy and compliance with HIPAA regulations by automatically removing sensitive data and personally identifiable information from transcript text.
