With digital engagement becoming essential rather than optional, the healthcare industry is in the midst of a digital revolution – the likes of which have never been seen before.
A scenario such as one of a hospital network – spanning multiple medical facilities, clinics, and hospitals, with a complex structure of healthcare professionals, administrators, and support staff – presents a critical requirement for robust data security, as well as a strategic approach to leveraging data for enhanced patient care and operational efficiency.
In any healthcare operation, data security, regulatory compliance, and patient satisfaction are monumental challenges. With many patient interactions happening daily, including appointment scheduling, prescription inquiries, billing inquiries, and medical consultations, the volume of sensitive conversation data can quickly become staggering.
A report by the Boston Consulting Group shows that while in-person consultations will still have their place for some time, the industry is experiencing a massive shift to telehealth where virtual consultations are now more often the norm. A main driver for this is that telehealth is seen as a more sustainable solution to long-term and ongoing care. So much so that the telehealth market is projected to reach USD 559.52 billion by 2027 with a CAGR of 25.2%.
In the omnichannel conversation ecosystem that is audio, video, email, social and text, a massive amount of information moves around on a daily basis. It’s also worth noting that the information itself, and the handling thereof, is also a large contributor to burnout leading to staff retention issues as outdated systems are not coping, leaving staff with cumbersome workarounds to ensure accurate and HIPAA-compliant patient data.
Healthcare’s digital revolution is not just the shift to telehealth but the shift in approach to how data is being managed and utilized. Where single-purpose solutions were the norm, the demand for solutions that alleviate the burden of data and data handling – no matter the complexity of the environment – is rapidly increasing. In other words, the more interoperability a solution can deliver, the more likely it is to make a difference in the environment and the more likely it is to be used.
This is why CallCabinet is shaking up the healthcare industry – delivering the tools required to not only safely and securely capture all conversation data but also deliver that data into actionable business intelligence.
Patient Data Handling: A New Standard
Any time a patient’s protected health information is accessed HIPAA compliance is in play. No matter the type of conversation interaction, for example, in-person, telehealth, or phone calls.
Implementing CallCabinet’s state-of-the-art call recording and analytics SaaS solution is critical to ensure that all conversation data remains HIPAA-compliant. From setting a telehealth appointment, appointment confirmation, virtual supplier meeting, email with telehealth call link, and any other phone or video call, all conversations are compliantly recorded and the data made available for analysis.
With this largely untouched wealth of data from patient-to-staff and staff-to-staff interactions at your fingertips, AI-driven conversation analytics allow healthcare administrators to identify trends as well as review concerns from recorded interactions.
It’s a game-changer for healthcare facilities aiming to provide better, more responsive, and customer-centric services.
Diagnosing Trends: Improve Patient and Staff Care
When it comes to patient experience, healthcare institutions are expected to match the level of customer service from that of other consumer brands. New patients will shop around to find healthcare that not just suits their needs but treats them as the paying customers they are.
The key here is monitoring and not just collecting and storing data, but analyzing it and uncovering where there is room for improvement. Keyword and sentiment analysis of the captured data, such as screen recordings from telehealth appointments or voice data from phone calls, allow key business metrics to be identified and explained: Was the patient unhappy with the scheduling frequency? Were insurance-related delays not adequately communicated? Was the ensuing miscommunication handled properly by the healthcare staff? Is the patient at risk of changing clinics?
Of course, if you can do all this for your patients why not also apply it to your staff? It’s a sure way of identifying burnout and dissatisfaction and goes a long way in improving staff retention and satisfaction. By keeping the organization informed of when things are going well, or not so well, among their staff, proactive actions can be taken before things escalate.
CallCabinet delivers the quantifiable indicators supervisors can use to evaluate workforce performance and improve internal and external operations all contributing to a smoother and more satisfying patient and staff experience. And ultimately protecting the organization’s bottom line.
Data Security & Compliance: AI provides a Watchful Eye
Patients trust their healthcare provider with their most sensitive information. CallCabinet’s focus on data fortification and accessibility sets the new benchmark for patient data security.
With military-grade rotating encryption methodology, multi-factor authentication and compliant call sharing, the data is as secure as it can get. Add to this CallCabinet’s next-generation AI and it’s like having a watchful eye on every interaction, making sure you never slip out of compliance that could trigger crippling fines and costly legal cases.
Assuring the utmost security while compliance regulations are adhered to in the handling of sensitive patient data is non-negotiable. Tools such as CallCabinet’s PCI DSS redaction are critical when collecting digital payment information – for example when a doctor’s office calls to collect a patient’s copay or other billing obligations.
Then too, by analyzing conversation data already captured, the system can flag potential breaks and breaches in protocol or regulations. Here CallCabinet’s AI-driven analytics play the role of a vigilant guardian. The platform continuously monitors calls for potential risks, flagging risks found and automatically routing them to the relevant party, ensuring ongoing compliance with HIPAA and other regulatory mandates.
And remember, data security is not just about protecting data; it’s also about guaranteeing its availability. CallCabinet’s 2N resiliency means that even in the face of a system failure or other issues, your data remains accessible. Whether this data is kept on-premise, fully in the cloud, or in a hybrid storage environment, this reliability is crucial in healthcare, where every second counts.
