What to expect:

Over the course of an hour, Anthem’s Staff VP, Technology, Kumar Gudavalli will walk a small group of senior execs through Anthem’s decision to go Conversational and their progress with messaging and AI, how the healthcare provider drove an increase in messaging volume through IVR deflection, and a peak into a customer centric approach for the future.

Healthcare is a more universal focus than ever before, and with that necessity — and scrutiny — comes a demand for change. Anthem heeded that call, and is now leading the pack in creating streamlined member experiences that make healthcare more accessible and easy to understand for members, while reducing operational costs for the business. They’ve done this through their implementation of Conversational AI. 

Instead of relying on healthcare portals with notoriously difficult-to-navigate UI or 1-800 numbers with long wait times, Anthem leverages LivePerson’s Conversational Cloud to incorporate modern modalities like messaging and automation into everyday care. With tools like IVR deflection to messaging, customers now get the support they need in channels they understand — without spending hours on hold or feeling anxious about not knowing the right questions to ask. Hear Anthem’s Staff VP, Technology, Kumar Gudavalli on: 

  • How Anthem  introduced Conversational AI and messaging into their member engagement strategy
  • The amazing results the provider has driven including an increase in CSAT and in messaging volume
  • Anthem’s near-term vision for Conversational AI including agent-side support through automation
