Running any medical practice can include its fair share of admin duties. One of which, a very important one: reminding your patients of their appointments. Without your patients arriving for their appointments, you don’t make any money as a practice. So how could you remind your patients without breaking the bank or an arm and a leg? SMS, and here are 4 reasons why you should use it:
1: It’s instant:
An SMS takes a few seconds to deliver to a valid handset, which means your patients will receive their reminders in time for them to remember their appointment with your practice.
2: It’s cost effective:
You can send a message to your patients for a few cents. This can save you up to 80% on communication costs, and a lot of time that you would be wasting calling each and every patient that has an appointment coming up.
3: Your patients can reply:
If a patient of yours needs to let you know that they are running late because of traffic, or even if they need to cancel and reschedule the appointment, they can reply to the SMS that you have sent them. This will appear in your e-mail inbox, as well as your application’s inbox immediately, so you can make the necessary adjustments to your diary.
4: It boosts your service ratings:
Your patients will feel like they are important to your practice when you personally remind them of their appointments. A short SMS will really make your practice stand out amongst your competition.
