Missed appointments is one of the most common and costly problems healthcare providers face on a daily basis. Not only are your patients not receiving the care that they need, but you are also wasting valuable time and resources waiting for people who don’t show up.
Text messaging is a simple solution that can reduce the rate of your patient no-shows. By sending patients a short text message reminder before every appointment, your organization can save money and improve attendance rates.
