  • Talkdesk Autopilot for Healthcare connects with electronic health records (EHR) and other key systems to autonomously resolve complex needs and questions throughout the patient journey, from patient access and symptom checking to revenue cycle and patient services.

SAN FRANCISCO and ORLANDO, FLA. — March 12, 2024 — Talkdesk®, Inc., a global AI-powered contact center leader for enterprises of all sizes, continues to make it faster and easier for organizations to take advantage of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) to unlock powerful new efficiencies in the contact center. Accelerating its vision of autonomous customer experience (CX) and building on the recent announcement of Talkdesk Autopilot, the company introduced Talkdesk Autopilot for Healthcare, the next generation of its iconic virtual agent specifically developed to handle patient and member use cases. Talkdesk Autopilot for Healthcare was launched today at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Global Health Conference and Exhibition.

Talkdesk Autopilot is available across chat and voice channels in the Talkdesk Healthcare Experience Cloud™, the company’s purpose-built platform that helps organizations create synchronized, personalized, and radically convenient experiences for healthcare patients, members, and caregivers. Talkdesk Autopilot for Healthcare supports the whole patient journey through healthcare-specific integrations, workflows, and GenAI models developed based on the company’s extensive experience with healthcare organizations. The result is a connected, intelligent patient and member assistant proficient in resolving consumers’ most common questions and needs. 

While many call center automation solutions focus on deflecting callers to other online tools, Talkdesk Autopilot can perform tasks that patients request and seamlessly loop in human agents when necessary. The result is frictionless interactions and improved patient acquisition and loyalty.

Patients and members call or chat with their providers and health plans for many important reasons before and after clinical visits. Talkdesk Autopilot for Healthcare now automates an expanded set of use cases that support the whole patient journey — including new patient acquisition, making and managing appointments, completing PCI-compliant payments, finding a nearby clinic, and managing claims and prior authorizations. In addition to leveraging deep and direct integrations with Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, the tool now integrates with digital triage and symptom-checking platforms, including Infermedica and Isabel Health. It connects with physician and location directories to help patients find the right provider and directs plan members to the best level of care. 

Talkdesk has led the healthcare contact center market since 2021 by directly integrating with EHR systems. Talkdesk Healthcare Experience Cloud is available in the integration marketplaces for leading EHR platforms, including athenahealth, Epic, and Oracle Health (formerly Cerner). Today, Talkdesk announced support for multiple EHR systems for Talkdesk Healthcare Experience Cloud. Now, the purpose-built contact center solution for healthcare can read and update information from different EHRs for customers who may use distinct platforms for various contact centers, specialties, or facilities during a conversation for greater efficiency, accuracy, and personalization.
