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.

Manage two-way text conversations and view chatbot communications and other automated messaging from within your call center system.
Call to Text
Reduce patient frustration during peak phone times. With Call to Text, patients can switch from waiting on hold to live texting with your staff with the press of a button.
Minimize patient frustration with immediate follow-ups. When an on-hold caller hangs up or gets disconnected, automatically re-engage over text.
WELL automates the referral process, sending patients a message from the referred-to specialist inviting them to schedule, followed by a custom cadence of appointment confirmation and reminder messages.
Enable staff to instantly answer common questions by selecting a response from pre-written templates, ensuring staff efficiency and consistency.
Create Enterprise User Groups within WELL, such as Billing and Insurance group or Spanish Speakers group. Then route inbound communication to the right staff manually using mentions or automatically by Keyword Actions.
When patients initiate contact with your health system, provide automated messaging based on specific keywords. Messaging content can address hours, directions, and frequently asked questions.
Embed WELL in your call center system and view texting history and other patient activity all on the same screen.
WELL Analytics provides data on the content, timing, and sentiment of messages so that you can understand your patients’ needs and provide the resources to meet them. Analyze the effectiveness of your outbound messages, such as clickthrough and response rates, and portal enrollment messages.
"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.”
