Why you should use SMS reminders in your practice
Patient no-shows cause both challenges and lost revenue for medical practices, and most often, it comes down to human forgetfulness or lack of communication.
Improving on both your patients’ attendance rates and two-way communication may not be as daunting as it first seems. It may be as easy as sending booking confirmations and appointment reminders via SMS
– a proven effective and affordable solution for most medical practices.
What’s the cost of no-shows to your practice?
Do the math – if you have an average of two no-shows per day and your consult price is $95, the lost revenue could be as much as $950 per week. In a year, that makes over $45,000 – some of which could be alleviated with simple SMS reminders.
