Everything you need for engaging patient experiences


Elevate your approach to patient engagement

Proactive and responsive communications instill trust and strengthen the relationship between patients and their care team, resulting in better patient adherence, retention and outcomes. Achieve operational efficiencies and help patients manage their care on their terms with an expanding portfolio of existing applications—or custom‑build your own.

Interactive Voice Response (IVR) in the Patient Access Center

Greet patients with “How can I help you today?” and let them use natural language on voice and digital channels to verbalize their needs—faster and easier than choosing from a laundry list of recited options. Patients are accurately routed to live agents, to helpful self‑service options for quick task completion, or per existing protocols. Unparalleled Nuance IVR technology accepts the patient reply, understands intent, and resolves the request. Shorter call times and wait times please patients while self‑service options achieve call containment for reduced staff workload.

Appointment Management

On average, 13% of patients are appointment no‑shows. Patients who come to their appointments without the necessary preparations—fasting, completed lab tests, etc.—further impact patient care and organization revenue. Automate voice and SMS appointment reminders or field inbound voice appointment inquiries and offer real‑time rescheduling capabilities on the channel of contact. Enable native messaging from any application and manage proactive outreach to improve appointment adherence, promote wellness, impact revenue, and boost satisfaction.

Patient Support

Provide interactive bilingual 24/7/365 assistance powered by industry‑leading natural language understanding. IVR and virtual assistant capabilities help patients self‑serve account access and activation issues or receive automated answers to frequently asked questions over voice or online chat. Similarly, patients seeking assistance preparing for their virtual visit receive instructions and help with testing and troubleshooting, with the option to transfer to a live agent. Organizations conduct proactive outreach and share useful information that lead to greater patient portal access and telehealth success.

Do it yourself, but not alone.

With Nuance Mix tooling platform, organizations can harness the power of best‑in‑class conversational AI services and APIs to design a natural, conversational patient engagement experience. Use IVR and Natural Language Understanding (NLU), Text to Speech (TTS), and Speech to Text (STT) to power interactive dialogs and virtual assistants on voice and digital channels. Once an application exists, quick adjustments allow deployment in multiple languages across multiple channels. Patients experience consistent, intuitive conversational AI—no matter how they get in touch.

Let's modernize the digital front door and improve the patient experience together.
