Improve patient communication

SMS is a direct way of communication that increases the likelihood of reaching your patients. It also gives patients a simple and convenient way to reply, improving their response rates. And with millions of mobile phone users, it makes communication immediate and effective without the need for data.

Less missed appointments

Missed appointments not only prove costly for practices but also disrupts patient care. Sending SMS reminders to patients can help reduce missed appointments and ensure continuity of care.

Better patient care

SMS makes it easier for practices to connect with patients when needing to send updates for health-related matters and important announcements (e.g., immunisations or screenings), recalls to book for follow-ups or test results, reminders for appointments, payments, prescription expiry, order confirmation or pick-ups, and even form or survey completions. This can improve the patient’s experience, engagement with the practice, and overall satisfaction.

Less admin cost and time

In addition to reducing missed appointments, sending SMS makes communication with patients less time-consuming by automating manual tasks to free up your staff so that they can focus more on the practice and patient care. By reducing the need for posting costly letters, phone tags, and leaving voicemails, overall, SMS as a form of communication can reduce the practice’s operational costs and increase efficiencies.
