Patient Satisfaction

Improve patient experiences with conversation intelligence

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform enables healthcare organizations to increase patient satisfaction, enhance efficiency, and improve healthcare outcomes.

The role of patient satisfaction in healthcare today

Ensuring patient satisfaction is essential for healthcare organizations today. A rise in healthcare consumerism and increased competition among traditional and startup organizations means that patients can easily seek alternative care when they’re not satisfied with their current provider. By more effectively satisfying patients’ expectations, healthcare organizations can attract and retain customers more easily, improving margins while remaining competitive.

To satisfy patients, healthcare organizations must have insight into how patients feel about every touchpoint on their healthcare journey – from visits to healthcare facilities to communication around scheduling, billing, prescription refills, and follow-up care. The healthcare call center can be a vital source of information, but only when organizations have technology to easily and automatically mine patient conversations for actionable intelligence.

That’s where CallMiner can help. The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform captures 100% of patient interactions on all channels, providing insights for enhancing patient experiences and driving patient satisfaction.

Drivers of patient satisfaction

The patient experience journey today is more complex than ever, with multiple touchpoints where organizations can either exceed or fail to live up to patient expectations. Ensuring patient satisfaction requires organizations to understand how patients feel about every interaction, including the digital patient experiences that are an integral part of the healthcare journey.

While direct contact with healthcare providers is still a significant factor in patient satisfaction, organizations must also focus on all the other points in a patient’s journey, including:

• Time spent waiting in lobbies, exam rooms, and for follow-up calls from providers.

• The ability of front desk employees and hospital call center agents to answer questions.

• The ability of support staff to communicate with kindness and empathy.

• The cleanliness of facilities from the exam rooms and waiting areas to hallways and bathrooms.

• The ease of managing patient billing and insurance matters.

• The clarity and ease of communications around scheduling, refilling prescriptions, and plans of care.

Frequently asked questions.

Patient satisfaction is a measure of whether a healthcare experience or a series of interactions met a patient’s expectations.

The patient experience comprises all the interactions that a patient has with a healthcare provider, from care and services received in healthcare settings to communication around scheduling, billing, prescriptions, and follow-up care. Measurements of patient experience are concerned with what happened, while measurements of patient satisfaction are concerned with how patients felt about what happened and whether it met their expectations.

Conversation intelligence is a technology that uses AI and machine learning to capture and analyze conversations and determine the meaning of a speaker’s words and the emotions behind them. In a healthcare contact center, conversation intelligence solutions can be used to reveal insight into the needs, desires, opinions, and feelings of patients. By providing both real-time and post-interaction feedback, a conversation intelligence platform can help contact center agents and supervisors to improve patient satisfaction and develop recommendations to improve the patient experience.
