Houston Methodist Implements Syllable’s AI Voice Solution Technology to Enhance Patient Experience by Reducing Call Volume During COVID-19

Syllable, the leader in call center automation technology for integrated delivery networks and hospitals, announced a collaboration with Houston Methodist, one of the nation’s leading health systems and academic medical centers, to improve the patient experience through the deployment of conversational AI assistants in their call centers.

The latest Syllable voice assistant technology helps manage inbound patient call volume related to the COVID-19 vaccine, which was recently given emergency use authorization by the FDA. By reducing the burden on the call center and helping patients navigate preliminary questions related to the vaccination process, Syllable’s COVID-19 vaccination command center provides callers with actionable information and self-service work flows related to their vaccine related questions.

In March, Houston Methodist worked with Syllable to shift messaging to address the influx of patient inquiries related to COVID-19 testing and scheduling appointments. After Houston Methodist announced it was the first academic medical center in the U.S. to transfuse donated plasma from recovered COVID-19 patients to critically ill patients, there was an increase in call volume and website traffic from people interested in donating plasma. Through use of its website chatbot, Syllable and Houston Methodist were able to immediately address patients, triaging eligible candidates for plasma donation. The rate of automated calls increased from the initial launch and averaged 87% for the first six months.

Clinicians and staff with potential exposure or COVID-19 symptoms could call in to the automated system to obtain more information or schedule COVID-19 testing as needed. The Syllable solution has delivered an automation rate of nearly 90% since its launch.
