Fast forward to the future
A sneak peek into futuristic Healthcare CRM technologies
The modern healthcare industry has become highly patient-centric. As digitally powered patients compare reviews and pick medical care providers based on feedback; patient satisfaction has emerged as a key success metric for healthcare organizations.
The medical industry is a competitive space and this has made patient experiences as relevant to the sector as consumer experiences are to any other sector. And as patient-centricity becomes the new fulcrum on which healthcare services pivot, technology is finding its spot in the sun.
Healthcare was a late adopter of CX tech tools and innovation. While operation theatres and medical laboratories embraced technology, the overall healthcare infrastructure continued to run on the back of in-clinic consultations, paper forms and prescriptions, and impersonal front desk interactions.
The pandemic made this way of working turn turtle! Innovation was the big positive change that came out of the pandemic. Medical organizations now boast of technology-enabled infrastructure that lets patients register for their doctor appointment from their cars. AR, VR, and video connectivity have made remote patient monitoring a reality. Doctors can stay connected with their patients anytime, anywhere.
As healthcare organizations focus on improving patient-provider relationships and boosting patient satisfaction rates, technology is playing a significant role in shaping better patient experiences. Tools like telehealth put the patient at the heart of the healthcare agenda, improving caregiving and lowering medical costs.
Let’s look at some core areas where technology has played a fundamental role in improving patient experiences & engagement and impacted healthcare outcomes in a constructive way.
AI powers clinical and operational workflows, driving better patient experiences
The application of Artificial Intelligence is transforming the way healthcare services are delivered. It is being used to diagnose and detect illnesses, monitor patients, improve patient experiences, and increase access to medical care. The tools that are powering healthcare’s AI-driven transformation include conversational technologies, service bots, and cutting-edge appointment and lifecycle management solutions. These tools are being deployed to improve patient engagement and provide ideal patient-provider experiences.
According to a survey conducted by Dynata, “61% of patients said they wanted better communication experiences with their healthcare providers.” AI is making this happen. AI-driven telehealth tools have decimated geographical boundaries and powered medical practitioners to have virtual one-on-ones with their patients.
A tech-powered 360-degree view of the patient
In today’s tech-driven world, if there is one thing more important than data, it is putting that data to actionable use and building a unified view of the patient journey. This helps healthcare providers to administer precise and proactive care and improve patient experiences. When healthcare organizations have a single-window view of all patient data – be it health records, family medical history, appointment schedules, medical test results, social factors, and communication preferences – it helps provide personalized care, improve medical outcomes, reduce errors, and save more lives.
How can healthcare organizations make this possible? By deploying integrated CRM solutions that create omnichannel experiences, provide the right data, at the right time, on a unified dashboard, engage patients, and provide the best care and experiences.
Easyrewardz Healthcare CRM, for instance, provides omnichannel support, a 360-degree view of data, and helps manage patient
engagement. This is done by managing, categorizing, and prioritizing patient communication through multiple channels. The CRM also automates patient-doctor mapping and provides a combined view of the patient journey.
Riding the power of Mobile Technology
Mobile technology has driven healthcare’s digital and telemedicine revolution. Smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices have provided easier access to healthcare support and patient records, improved the quality of patient care, and streamlined back-office operations and medical training. From managing appointments to patient onboarding to support, WhatsApp-powered engagement has enabled hospitals to manage patient conversations over an accessiblecommunication channel. Solutions like Easyrewardz Healthcare CRM empower hospital staff to automate processes like patient communication, scheduling appointments, checking for room availability & more.
