Value to Access Leaders

Kloud 7 delivers significant value to access leaders by revolutionizing their healthcare communication strategies. We employ our expertise in telecommunications and call analytics to identify and rectify issues in existing communication frameworks. By enhancing access to care, our solutions ensure a smoother, more efficient patient journey. This not only helps to prevent missed or delayed diagnoses and improve patient flow but also helps to reduce healthcare costs. Therefore, by implementing Kloud 7's communication strategies, access leaders can assure high-quality healthcare and a positive patient experience.

Impact on Access

USA Health partnered with Kloud 7 as they identified a need to augment patient satisfaction and health outcomes by simplifying access to their care services. The problem lay in managing a high volume of calls, resulting in call abandonment. In addition, certain team members were not efficiently sharing the workload or delivering adequate service, which complicated the situation. These challenges severely impacted patients' ease of access to the healthcare system.

To tackle the above problems, Kloud 7, employed specialized telephony solutions, integrated call analytics, call recording, and a soft-phone app within the contact center to identify and address bottlenecks. Additionally, the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Integrated Call Recording Solution facilitated the detection of emotions and keywords during calls. We also introduced an Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) system to cut down on call answering time.

Upon implementing Kloud 7's services, USA Health set key performance indicators to evaluate their efficiency. With advanced analytics, they gained insights into call traffic and handling times, enabling them to optimize staffing and protocols, thereby streamlining patient access. For instance, the average call time dropped from 5-6 minutes to just 2 minutes and 20 seconds. Moreover, the answer time was reduced to as low as 30 seconds. They also established a specialized referral line, enhancing the referral process's speed and ease. Kloud 7's call analytics service provided comprehensive insights, including a detailed lost contact report, allowing the team to reach out promptly to missed contacts. Consequently, they achieved an abandonment rate of 8%, matching industry standards, thereby providing exceptional customer service and ensuring no call went unanswered.
