Medical Marketing Chatbots For Improved Patient Satisfaction and Conversion to Appointments

What is a Medical Chatbot? A medical chatbot is designed to have a conversation or a discussion with a real patient. Simply, from the view of a doctor or a medical practice manager, a chatbot is nothing more than software based on AI algorithms (Artificial Intelligence)  that will perform automatic tasks within given parameters. 

Generally in the medical industry there are 2 types of chatbots.

1. Medical Marketing ChatBots 

Designed to convert a visiting patient (on your website) to a paying patient. These are called Medical Marketing ChatBots. They are not designed to diagnose any specific medical conditions. They have 2 important roles.

A) Existing patient – direct them to a specific information. Like how to reach the office after hours. Access to patient portal etc. 

B) New potential patient – as a potential patient lands on your website, you have 15 seconds to engage them. So the medical marketing ChatBot should “walk” the potential patient through specific questions and steps so they can eventually become your patient.

2. Medical Symptom ChatBots 

Health chatbots ask patients a series of questions – so the ChatBot can understand basic information, the condition of a patient – this is very much like the front desk staff in a clinic, who would ask 1) Do you have a fever? 2) Are you in pain? so to understand their symptoms and then the ChatBot sends the data to doctor, who can provide diagnoses and prescribe medicine in real time.
