Product Description:

Without Hyro, health system call centers are reaching the burnout threshold too quickly. That’s when the perfect storm of missed calls, long wait times and poor user experience hits hard, ultimately causing patient churn and lost revenues. With Hyro, call center capacity is a non-issue, with 65-85% of calls being automatically deflected or resolved end-to-end, and the remainder of calls being quickly and accurately routed to the right departments.

It's an ever-clean filter you never need to change – Hyro has a three-pronged system to sorting call volume, automating routine calls without human intervention, directing complex calls to the right agent, and deflecting simple calls to SMS for self-service.

Smart Routing:

Navigate calls to the accurate source of support with natural language understanding (NLU)- based smart routing. Instantly match and transfer patient queries to the right service departments, skipping complicated audio menus and lengthy wait times in the process.

End-to-End Resolution:

Automate key digital services from start to finish with conversational AI end-to-end resolution. Solve routine requests such as physician scheduling, paying bills and getting answers to critical questions, without a human in the loop.

SMS Deflection/ Call-to-Text:

Shield overloaded call center teams from repetitive tasks with SMS Deflection (Call-to-Text). Funnel patients to self-serve with the resources you’ve already invested in, directing them to patient portals, FAQ pages, chat solutions and mobile app features.

Differentiators

Differentiators vs EHR Functionality:

Hyro layers on top of EHR functionality, adding natural language understanding to pre-existing workflows and use cases across Epic, Cerner and Athena.

Differentiators vs Competitors:

Our main competitors, such as Syllable and Nuance, focus on intent-based voice solutions. Intent, within the conversational AI space, usually means "if X then Y". For example, if AVIA says "red" then stop. We know that conversations need to be more flexible than a rigid flow chart of intents, so Hyro invented a new language-based approach called Adaptive Communications, which uses a knowledge graph, computational linguistics and natural language understanding to simplify and speed up deployment processes. Because of our approach, health systems do not need to constantly update their voice interfaces based on ever-changing content. It also means that typical challenges with conversational AI, including adding new use cases to existing deployments, are nullified with the ability to layer on new data without retraining the model. Ultimately, the time and cost saved by switching from intent-based to language-based is what drove Intermountain Healthcare, Baptist Health, Novant Health and plenty of other health systems to Adaptive Communications.

Unique Benefits: 

  • No-code, effortless deployment, and maintenance that doesn’t require any playbooks or training data
  • Voice AI that adjusts to changes in context
  • Fast automation of dozens of customized use cases and skills simultaneously
  • Industry-leading understanding rate at an average of 85-90%
  • Seamless live handoff between AI and agents on Cisco, Genesys, NICE, Twilio and more
  • Automatic 24/7 scraping of data sources including websites, EMRs/ CRMs, APIs, and client databases
  • Real-time dashboard with insights (trends, keywords, and metrics) that helps to optimize digital services
  • Explainability that allows health systems to understand why/how AI provides all outputs
Differentiators vs EHR Functionality:
  • Online Scheduling – new patients can book appointments from your website without setting up an EHR patient portal account
  • Referral Management – website portal for receiving referrals, customized workflow, automated alerts when referrals need attention
  • Patient Communications – automated text/email messages sent to patients triggered at specific steps in the consult or referral journey
  • Provider Communications – automated consult and referral status updates sent to sending providers to close the loop between PCPs and specialists
  • Fax Management – manage all inbound faxes and push faxed referrals into the referral workflow, ability to split faxes into multiple documents
  • Marketing CRM – physician liaisons can document outreach and compare outreach activity with referral volume from their partners
  • Market Research – over 7 million providers pre-loaded which allows you to identify new potential referral partners in your target markets
  • Referral Analytics – comprehensive suite of analytics to report on all your referral metrics (trends, volume, leakage, service levels, outreach, etc.)

Differentiators vs Competitors:

Differentiator 1: All-In-One Platform

  • Some vendors offer patient access, referral management, e-consults or CRMs. Our cloud-based platform offers them all plus the following features.
  • Real-time analytics across the platform
  • Automated workflow and decision support tools
  • Automated feedback loop with referring providers
  • Automated patient communications via text or email
  • Integrated fax management system (port over existing fax numbers)
  • Integrated Customer/Partner Relationship Management (CRM/PRM)
  • Marketing research tools based on a directory of over 7 million providers

Differentiator 2: Rapid Integration Capabilities

  • Our integration engine allows our Integrations Team to quickly deploy system interfaces using APIs, FHIR, HL7, Direct, etc. which is important when implementing the platform for health systems, ACOs and CINs with many EHRs, data warehouses and other third-party systems across their networks.  
  • In addition, we comply with the third-party system’s specifications rather than asking the vendor to follow our requirements which streamlines the integration process and reduces cost for the client. 

Differentiator 3: All Healthcare Referrals Supported

  • The system is highly configurable and can support all healthcare referral types such as medical, specialty care, therapy, imaging, dental, behavioral health, hospice, home care, etc.  
  • The customization in the system allows clients to define their own workflows, referral forms, patient communication templates, and other settings that can be standardized across the organization.
