Our Appointment Scheduler can send out customizable cell phone text messages (also called SMS reminders) to patients, so that they come in on time.
Text messaging isn’t just for the under-65 crowd anymore. Baby boomers (soon to become the Medicare population) are text-messaging fanatics. And older Americans already on Medicare are embracing cell phones at an increasing rate.
Does your staff spend time calling patients to remind them of appointments? Your time is very valuable, which is why you keep to a strict schedule — any minute that you spend that isn’t with a patient is a dollar you do not earn. Unfortunately, sometimes your patients — who also lead very busy lives — forget about their appointments, which costs you revenue, causes disruptions in your schedule, and hurts their healhcare.
Appointment Reminder lets you send those reminders automatically: just schedule the appointment in the Apex Appointment Scheduler, and we’ll send them text message reminders (via SMS) automatically. Set it and forget it. There is no special software to install and no hardware to buy: all you need is the computer you’re using to read this right now. Better yet, your patient's can respond and their confirmation is shown in the Apex Appointment Scheduler.
Our clients find that using automated appointment reminders decreases cancellations and no-shows: Clients tell us that we have saved their staff time with phone calls they no longer have to make.
