When you are looking for ways to streamline your medical practice, you will undoubtedly be interested in a suitable system to set up your medical appointments. There are a number of features you should bear in mind as you look for a good online scheduler. The scheduler should give you a number ways through which you can access your appointments. The COOLEST method so far is the ability to check the medical appointment records via instant messaging.
We live in a world of Information Technology where literally millions of instant messages are exchanged every day. Do you know that this simple feature can help you boost your revenue? The following are some of the reasons why your medical appointment scheduler should be enabled to use instant messaging.
No missed appointments …
Have you ever been in a situation where you were the one who failed your patient by being late for a scheduled appointment? It is not just patient no-shows that result in loss of revenue. YOU may also miss an appointment due to other commitments.
With the instant text messaging feature, you will ALWAYS be able to check your appointments at all times so that you don’t forget taking care of any of your patients in good time.
No matter where you may be, you won’t be out of touch. Whether you would like to know the next scheduled appointment, all the appointments for today, or tomorrow’s program, a simple text message will let you know what you want. The information will be delivered to you as an instant text message in REAL TIME.
Using the text messaging feature is very simple even if you are not great at writing on a cell phone’s keypad. All you have to do is send short, single-word text messages. You can make the process even more convenient by saving the respective text messages as templates that you just select and send!
No need of sophisticated equipment
In order to use the text messaging feature, you do not have to invest in an expensive smartphone. Whichever cell phone you have, you will receive the medical appointment records you are interested in.
For these reasons, an online scheduler with the text messaging feature is THE IDEAL choice for your medical practice.
