The Automated Care team at Amwell is helping to transform healthcare from reactive to proactive by partnering with health systems and other healthcare organizations who use our Automated Virtual Care & Triage platform to improve patient care and health.

Automated Care programs (ranging from chronic care and lifestyle management to pre- and post-procedure support) guide patients on evidence-based pathways to better health outcomes. Clients use our automated, personalized chats to support, triage, and communicate with patients in a scalable way. The chats enhance patient engagement and collect valuable patient-generated health data that can be used to drive behavior change.

The Conversation Design team focuses on the patient experience, maximizing patient engagement and aligning provider goals with patient needs by translating health information in a patient-friendly, clear, and easy-to-use format that meets patients where they are.

As a Conversation Designer, you will use writing, editing, health literacy, interaction design, and visual design skills and best practices to architect natural conversations. You’ll gain experience collaborating with client clinical teams, internal clinical informaticists, and operations team members. You’ll learn to synthesize clinical workflows and advocate for the patient voice to design chat experiences.

Grounded in self-determination theory and human-centered design, the Conversation Design team manages the Automated Care content program library, including conversation scripts, image and video assets, and patient education. Team members manage multiple projects independently, but work closely together to ensure consistency and establish best practices in this evolving fast-paced environment.
