Patient notification solutions are a must for healthcare practices when communicating with today’s patient. People’s lives are busier than ever before; plus they have multiple devices they are plugged in to most all of the time.

Effectively reaching these patients is key for physicians who want to reduce no-shows, improve patient engagement, boost staff morale and increase operational efficiency. But doing so requires understanding how to navigate today’s communication methods and implementing an automated system that can effectively manage appointment reminders.

ClientTell can provide the insight and the tools to help, and it’s what they do best. After 16 years in business with considerable healthcare technology experience among its senior leadership team, ClientTell solutions are trusted by more than 65,000 providers to deliver important messages and reminders impacting their patients’ health. A majority of adults use email, own a smartphone and use text messaging, and half of homes aren’t using a landline anymore. Reminder Manager offers a comprehensive suite of phone, text, email and smartphone push notifications to allow patients to quickly confirm or cancel their appointments or receive recall reminders and last-minute office announcements–no matter what communication method they use.
