Text Reminders

Time equals money in almost every industry; no more so than in healthcare. No-shows represent an enormous financial drain on the system, due to the high costs of appointments. Text reminders of patient appointments are the perfect modern solution to this issue!

  • Statistically, appointment reminders significantly reduce the number of no-shows.
  • Protection of patient privacy is ensured: no names or personal information are ever included in the text. The text is a simple appointment reminder.
  • Fully linked to the clinician’s schedule in Barnestorm: the reminders trigger based on the patient schedule.
  • The patient can reply to the text to confirm or cancel an appointment.
  • Text message reminders dramatically reduce late and missed appointments.
  • The patient and their family appreciate reminders for any appointments, because few people keep calendars and many people forget about their time commitments.
  • An SMS messaging service provides a non-intrusive system that’s scheduled and automated for the benefit of the patient, increasing patient safety and satisfaction.
  • Clinician schedules can be maintained by office staff or by the clinicians, making it easy to run a busy office.
  • Office staff can accept incoming text replies from patients and make schedule changes accordingly. These updates show immediately.
  • Providers can track patient receipt of text messages.
  • Barnestorm staff schedules can be added to Google calendars for ease of remote viewing for clinicians!
