Patient Experience

Improve the patient experience with conversation intelligence

CallMiner Eureka delivers insights from real conversations to transform healthcare interactions.

Enhance patient outcomes and improve satisfaction with CallMiner

Healthcare organizations everywhere are increasingly focused on the quality of the patient experience. Faced with greater competition and more empowered patients, organizations must enable the kind of patient interactions that increase satisfaction, enhance loyalty, and lead to better outcomes.

To enhance the patient experience, many organizations have turned to sample-based surveys that measure how patients feel about their interactions with providers at every point of contact. However, this approach provides insight into only a small fraction of the interactions, and responses tend to be highly polarized and lacking nuance. To truly understand how patients feel about their healthcare experiences and what steps can be taken to enhance their satisfaction, healthcare organizations need better ways to evaluate their relationships with patients.

CallMiner can help. CallMiner’s Eureka conversation intelligence platform captures and analyzes interactions with patients across all channels to provide clear insight into their needs, behavior, and opinions, helping organizations to take steps to improve communication and the overall patient experience.

How to ensure a better patient experience

Conversation intelligence allows healthcare organizations to analyze patient interactions across every channel. This level of detail provides a more thorough and accurate analysis of each patient’s needs and opinions, helping organizations to improve understanding and empathy which in turn leads to a better patient experience.

Conversation intelligence uses artificial intelligence to convert unstructured data in phone calls, emails, portals, and other channels into structured data that can be searched, analyzed, and mined for meaningful insight. Speech analytics provide an understanding of the meaning in conversations, while acoustic analytics help to identify the emotion behind the conversation, which can be a primary driver of a patient’s behavior and opinions.

With the data and insight provided by conversation intelligence, healthcare organizations can make significant improvement in the quality of interactions that patients have with contact center agents. From patient engagement to appointment scheduling and billing, the conversations with healthcare call center agents can have a significant impact on how patients feel about their provider.

Frequently asked questions.

A patient’s experience comprises all the interactions they have with a healthcare provider. These include appointments and services provided by medical professionals as well as calls, emails, chats, and other forms of communication before and after appointments. The patient experience includes conversations around care as well as scheduling, billing, transportation, prescriptions, and other topics related to their interaction with healthcare providers.

Conversation intelligence is a technology that captures and analyzes interactions with customers across all channels, including calls, email, social, web, chat, and SMS. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, conversation intelligence platforms convert unstructured data within conversations into structured data that can be searched and analyzed. Advanced conversation intelligence technologies determine the meaning of each conversation as well as the emotion in the interaction, revealing with greater accuracy how customers feel about a business, brand, service, or product.

In contrast to surveys that sample a small percentage of patients and provide data that is often skewed or biased, conversation intelligence delivers insight based on 100% of patient interactions across every channel. By mining these conversations for insight into a patient’s opinions and behavior, conversation intelligence enables healthcare organizations to better understand their patients’ wants and needs. This intelligence can help organizations make measurable improvement in efforts to enhance patient experiences, increase satisfaction, and improve outcomes.


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.
