Use Case: Call Center Management

Improve inbound call volume management and complete outreach to patients more efficiently with bi-directional texting in your Call Center.

Introducing Call to Text and Abandoned Call Features

The WELL™ Health Call to Text and Abandon Call features are now available to help healthcare call centers more efficiently manage inbound calls. Used together, these features reduce hold times and minimize abandoned calls by switching the caller to text messaging.

Efficient

WELL enables patient communication at scale, so you can reduce inbound and outbound call volume and do more with your existing staff.

Integrated

Enable transitions to text to reduce hold times and automate follow-up with abandoned calls by integrating directly with your call center phone system.

Measurable

WELL offers robust analytics to help you make data-driven decisions on call volume, response rates, and the other metrics that matter to your organization.

"WELL Health’s Call-to-Text feature allows patients, who are short on time, to switch their phone calls to text messaging, rather than wait on hold, wait for a callback or just hang up.

Moving these important health conversations to SMS/texting allows the patient to respond on their terms and on their timing, ensuring they get the care and answers they deserve from healthcare providers.”
