NEW YORK and BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Calibrater Health, a provider of text-based surveys and patient relationship management software, announces today that it will roll out its platform to American Family Care (AFC), the nation's leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational medicine.
The Calibrater platform automates text-message conversations with patients after a healthcare encounter, then classifies, routes and assigns patient responses and comments for follow-up using machine learning algorithms. AFC uses the Calibrater platform to centralize patient relationship management, and keep clinical and operational teams informed and engaged with real-time data updates and alerts.
"We're so excited to be working with American Family Care, a pioneering organization in urgent care," said Calibrater's CEO, Tim Dybvig, of the 35-year old organization. "As one of the most admired brands in health care, AFC understands the importance of ensuring a fantastic patient experience. Our platform will help them maintain that high quality of service as they continue to expand into new markets."
Across industries, the Net Promoter Score has been shown to be a strong predictor of growth, and healthcare is no exception. In a 2012 issue brief, Bain & Company concluded that patients with the highest scores were four times as likely as others to return and were willing to travel farther to do so. "We have always enjoyed very high levels of patient satisfaction and loyalty. Nevertheless, our initial pilot with Caibrater has helped us to further improve our patient experience," said Randy Johansen, President of AFC. "The insights provided by Calibrater have been truly invaluable, so we are looking forward to expanding the use of this important tool at our medical centers."
