Improve Patient Experience in Healthcare

Improve the patient experience in healthcare with CallMiner

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform delivers the insights that positively impact the patient experience to improve outcomes and to drive greater satisfaction.

How to improve patient experiences in healthcare organizations

From hospitals and physician practices to pharmacies and insurance companies, healthcare organizations today are focused on enhancing patient experiences and improving patient satisfaction. Fundamental changes in the healthcare industry have made it much easier for patients to seek care elsewhere when they are unhappy with their experiences or communication with their current provider. When they can consistently improve the patient experience, healthcare organizations are more successful at retaining patients and remaining viable in a highly competitive industry.

To improve patient experiences, healthcare organizations need insight into patients’ needs, desires, opinions, and feelings about their interactions throughout their care journey. Medical call centers are the best source for this information, as they handle much of the communication with patients. Yet traditional methods for gleaning information such as surveys or manual call monitoring are often limited in scope and skewed by polarized responses.

That’s where conversation intelligence from CallMiner can help – by capturing and analyzing 100% of interactions with patients.

Conversation intelligence: the key to improving patient experience

Conversation intelligence is a technology that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to extract meaningful insight from the unstructured data in phone calls, emails, chats, medical portals, social media, texts, and other communication channels. A conversation intelligence platform captures these conversations with patients, transcribing, analyzing, and categorizing them to reveal insights that can help with improving the patient experience.

By determining meaning and identifying emotion in conversations with patients, healthcare organizations can discover the drivers behind patient communication along with any obstacles to improving patient experiences. Healthcare organizations can rely on conversation intelligence to:

• Create connected patient experiences and journeys, proactively identifying issues without relying on solicited, sample-based interviews.

• Track and enhance patient satisfaction, uncovering sentiment to better serve patients and increase self-service options.

• Improve quality of care with real-time alerts that automatically route, triage, and escalate interactions as needed.

Frequently asked questions.

The patient experience is defined by all the points of contact between a patient and a healthcare organization, from the care they receive in hospitals and doctors’ offices to the communication they have around scheduling, billing, prescriptions, and follow-up care. Because patients who have negative experiences are more likely to seek care elsewhere, organizations are highly focused on improving patient experiences in healthcare settings.

To improve the patient experience in hospitals, physicians’ practices, and elsewhere, healthcare organizations need insight into how patients feel about their experience throughout their healthcare journey. Analyzing communications with medical contact centers can be an invaluable source of information. While traditional methods of gathering information – surveys or manual call monitoring, for example – provide only limited information, a conversation intelligence platform like CallMiner can capture and analyze 100% of conversations that take place via phone, email, chat, social media, and other channels.

Conversation intelligence is a technology that uses AI and machine learning to capture, analyze, and derive insight from all the communications that a company has with its customers, patients, employees, and other audiences. A conversation intelligence platform like CallMiner can automatically transcribe, categorize, and score every conversation, turning unstructured information into structured data that can be searched and analyzed for insight.


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.
