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.

Benefits:

  • 3-10 day deployment
  • Zero client-side maintenance
  • 60-85% deflection/ resolution of calls and messages
  • 5x Average Handle Time
  • 99% reduction in Average Hold Time
  • Pre-loaded skills, like scheduling and routing
  • Proprietary natural language engine that adapts to patients' dialects, phrasing, sentiment and more
  • Integrations with Epic EMR, Salesforce, and major telephony providers like Cisco, NICE, Genesys and Twilio
About Hyro:

Hyro is a plug & play conversational AI platform enabling healthcare enterprises to easily supercharge patient experiences with voice & text capabilities across all their digital channels.

Product Description:

The experience for patients on the phone is far from optimal. Patients experience: 

  1. Long hold times
  2. 3-4 transfers to get to the correct destination
  3. Broken extensions
  4. Full or malfunctioning voice mailboxes
  5. Lack of resolution of their needs.

On average, one third of incoming phone callers abandon the call before they get help and 60% of incoming phone calls to your hospital are unresolved. This requires multiple phone calls from patients to get their needs met and to transact business, which exacerbates your phone call volume problems.

The Patient Assistant for Hospitals allows you to solve your patient experience problems on the phone easily and at a fraction of the cost of a human operator. The Patient Assistant allows callers to use natural language to navigate your telephony system and intelligently routes them to the correct destination more often than a human. With the Patient Assistant: 

  1. Call abandonment is markedly reduced
  2. Hold times shrink considerably
  3. Callers are transferred on average one time during a call rather than 3-4 times
  4. First call resolution rises considerably
  5. Daily call volume handled by humans operators is reduced 50%
  6. Patients have a much more consistent brand experience
  7. And with EHR integration, automated transactions like scheduling functions, prescription refill, bill pay, and medical records requests become possible.

About Syllable Corp:

Syllable is a leading provider of healthcare contact center and medical practice automation solutions using conversational AI

Syllable's product, the Patient Assistant, is used by both hospitals and practices to intelligently route calls more efficiently and provide for automated transactions like appointment scheduling and prescription refill on the phone.


The Patient Assistant also provides rich insights into the end to end call journey for your patients. Current call center metrics are too focused on the micro engagement at the call center and fail to provide the full extent of operational difficulties patients experience on the phone. 

Syllable is used by health systems such as NewYork-Presbyterian, Houston Methodist, Parkview Health, Memorial Care and Honor Health to improve patient experience, enhance access and reduce the cost of delivering healthcare on the phone.

With 88% of patients engaging with hospitals and providers over the phone, why invest millions on your digital front door. Engage patients where they are, on the phone, with Syllable. We automate 50% of incoming phone volume on day one at the fraction of the cost of a human call center agent.


Syllable provides swift time to value with real ROI.

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:

We are the front door to a health system. As a contact center automation provider we integrate with the EHR we do not compete with it.

Differentiators vs Competitors:
  1. We meet patients where they are, on the phone.
  2. 100% healthcare focused
  3. We answer over 1M calls a month for our current partners
  4. Real ROI for our partners
  5. Successful integrations with EPIC, Alscripts, Meditech
  6. Dedicated senior executive who is responsible for your account from initial contact through implementation and beyond.
