Improve medical call center performance with CallMiner

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform delivers insights to improve patient experiences, enhance outcomes, and drive business performance improvement.

How medical call centers can accelerate revenue and drive better experiences

Medical call centers can play an invaluable role for healthcare organizations today. The healthcare landscape is changing rapidly as trends like value-based reimbursement and consumerism create new challenges and opportunities. At a time when patients have more options than ever before, medical call centers can help to attract and retain patients by improving patient experiences and increasing patient satisfaction.

Time spent with medical providers is only a small portion of a patient’s healthcare experience. Many of their interactions take place outside the doctor’s office or hospital as patients seek help with scheduling appointments, refilling prescriptions, managing billing, and communicating about plans of care. By ensuring that these interactions are as positive and successful as possible, healthcare contact center agents can help to deliver better overall experiences for patients. And by using conversation intelligence to mine patient interactions for actionable intelligence, medical call centers allow organizations to better understand their patients’ needs and meet their expectations. That’s where CallMiner can help.

Six Trends Transforming Healthcare and Patient Experience

How conversation intelligence transforms medical call centers

Conversation intelligence uses AI and machine learning to determine the meaning of a voice or text-based interaction with the patient as well as the emotion that may be driving the patient’s behavior. By converting the unstructured information in phone calls, chat, email, and other communications into structured data, a conversation intelligence platform like CallMiner delivers deeper insight into the needs, expectations, and opinions of individual patients as well as entire patient base.

Armed with this data, organizations can develop real-time insight for enhancing patient experiences and improving patient satisfaction in healthcare settings. Patient engagement teams can identify obstacles to delivering exceptional patient experiences and take swift action to remediate them. Medical call center managers can monitor the performance of agents as they interact with patients, providing real-time and post-call feedback to improve the outcome of interactions. Revenue cycle management teams can identify and eliminate billing friction to shorten cash flow cycles. And organizations can take dramatic steps to improve business performance.
