In the face of overwhelming call volumes, sophisticated AI-powered voice experiences support personalized care and relieve burden on employees
NEW YORK, June 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LivePerson (Nasdaq: LPSN), a global leader in Conversational AI, today announced a partnership with TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track to use voice bot and AI technology to significantly improve patient and employee experiences.
TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track, the award-winning network of 16 healthcare clinics serving the Tampa Bay region, selected LivePerson to help it address overwhelming call volumes that were flooding its customer service representatives and adversely impacting its 4.9-star patient experience. As an early adopter of LivePerson's recently-launched Voice AI solutions, TGH Urgent Care implemented the company's voice bot tech into its traditional IVR system to reduce pressure on human agents, as well as funnel callers into messaging conversations handled by a combination of AI and human agents.
The integration of human agents with AI across voice and messaging has already achieved impressive results, even during an unprecedented surge in calls, including:
"Adopting LivePerson's services has improved our communication dynamics, eased staff burden, and enhanced the patient experience, allowing us to focus on providing industry-leading healthcare in the Tampa Bay Area," said Dr. Daron Diecidue, CEO at TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track.
TGH Urgent Care also implemented LivePerson's Conversation Assist feature, creating about 25 pre-scripted responses to common messaging inquiries, which sped up response times and made customer interactions more efficient. This feature also helps agents better manage periods of high messaging volume, making the entire experience smoother and more efficient.
"It's encouraging to see how TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track is using voice and AI tech to do right by its patients and its employees," said LivePerson founder and CEO Rob LoCascio. "With Voice AI, it's easier than ever to overcome the 56-year old stigma associated with dialing a 1-800 number and give customers their time back to get done what they need to do, including taking care of their health and their loved ones' health. We're proud to partner with TGH Urgent Care to help their patients and employees live and work better."
