In this article, we'll walk through:
- what tools are available to you to create the materials to administer your program.
After reading this documentation, you will:
- know the best use cases for Assessments, Email Templates, Care Flow Templates, and Appointment Templates.
- know what to take into consideration when planning your content creation .
Workshop provides built-in tools that allow you to create and consolidate the materials you use to administer your program. From intake surveys, to follow-up emails and appointment reminders, you can modify, manage, and administer all your materials through Welkin’s single- system.
The Assessments feature allows you to create structured forms to collect information. Assessments are flexible enough to support common scenarios like “Intake form” or “Satisfaction Survey” as well as structured note-taking.
Additionally, if you often conduct assessments over the phone, you can include scripts in your Assessments. Using scripts, you can outline the dialogs your coaches will have during their phone calls to make the conversation to collect data easier and consistent.
Consider the following when planning your Assessments:
- What assessments or forms - digital or paper — does your team use today?
- Under what conditions do you perform these assessments? What actions do you take as a result of the assessment being completed?

If your program uses email as one of the mechanisms to communicate with patients, you can use Email Templates to help save time for your staff and increase the consistency and effectiveness of your outbound email.
Email Templates support template variables, making it easy to automatically fill-in the patient’s name, the sending coach’s name, as well as additional details to your emails. Your team can also personalize a message when using a Template.
Templates can be chosen manually when a coach composes a message, or automatically via a Program Process.
Consider the following when planning your Email Templates:
- What are the most common messages that your team composes today? Some examples are “Welcome” emails, “Follow up” emails, and “Appointment reminder” emails.
- Consistency in voice and tone, including how you greet your patients and how you sign each email.
- Naming and organization. Email templates can be organized into folders. Depending on your Program, you may choose to organize your Templates by Phase, key tasks, or by the different teams or groups who’ll be using Welkin.

Care Flow Templates
Care Flow Templates help you and your team standardize the programs and workflows they are executing on a regular basis. Care Flows can standardize patient care or the task protocols that your team follows.
Consider the following when planning your Care Flow Templates:
- What are the common courses of action you take with your patient population? Some common examples are “Increase Physical Activity” or “Reduce Stress.”
- What are common workflows performed by a coach for a patient that would benefit from being tracked in the system? Some common examples are “Onboarding Checklist” or “High Risk Escalation.”
