Improving Patient Satisfaction in Healthcare

Solutions for improving patient satisfaction in healthcare

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform delivers insight into the patient experience, helping healthcare organizations improve outcomes and deliver on expectations.

Insight and intelligence are the keys to improving patient satisfaction in healthcare

Patient satisfaction plays a critical role in helping healthcare organizations to stay competitive. With increasing competition between traditional companies and digital startups, patients today can choose from a growing list of providers. When they are unhappy with their experience with one provider, it’s easier than ever to simply find a new doctor, choose a different hospital, or walk down the street to a competing pharmacy.

The first step to improving patient satisfaction in healthcare settings is to look at every touchpoint in the patient experience and determine how well or poorly it meets patient expectations. The healthcare or insurance call center is usually the best place to find this information, as it’s where most conversations with patients take place and where patients are most likely to reveal their honest opinions.

Tracking and measuring patient opinions and sentiment in the contact center requires advanced technology for capturing and analyzing conversations across every channel. That’s why so many healthcare organizations today rely on conversation intelligence technology from CallMiner.

How conversation intelligence delivers insight into patient satisfaction

Conversation intelligence is a technology that’s increasingly used for improving patient satisfaction in healthcare organizations. Unlike traditional solutions for reviewing contact center interactions, a conversation intelligence platform like CallMiner can capture and analyze 100% of conversations that take place via phone, email, chat, SMS, web, social, and other channels.

Conversation intelligence uses AI and machine learning to determine the meaning of conversations, as well as acoustic analysis to understand the emotion behind a speaker’s words and the reason they initiated contact. By turning the unstructured information in these conversations into structured data, CallMiner makes it possible to aggregate data from multiple channels and to mine it for insight into patients’ needs, opinions, and expectations.

These insights enable healthcare organizations to get a better understanding of what patients want – and what it takes to satisfy them. With this information, organizations can take concrete action to improve the patient experience in healthcare interactions, driving greater satisfaction and improving patient service.

Frequently asked questions.

Patient satisfaction is a metric used by healthcare organizations to determine how happy patients are with the care they receive. Patient satisfaction is usually based on a patient’s expectations – patients whose expectations are met or exceeded are inevitably more satisfied with their care.

With the rise of consumerism and greater choice for patients, improving patient satisfaction in healthcare organizations has become a critical part of acquiring and retaining patients and ensuring competitiveness. To improve patient satisfaction, healthcare organizations must document each patient’s journey and take steps to understand how satisfied the patient was with care and communication at each touchpoint. By understanding a patient’s expectations, desires, opinions, and emotions about each step in their healthcare journey, organizations can take concrete action to enhance the patient experience, improving patient satisfaction in healthcare settings.

Conversation intelligence is a technology that turns the unstructured information in voice or text-based conversations into structured data that can be searched and analyzed. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, a conversation intelligence solution captures, transcribes, categorizes, analyzes, and scores each conversation between an organization and a customer or patient. A superior conversation intelligence platform can capture 100% of every conversation across all channels, including phone, chat, email, SMS, social media, web, and others.
