You can quickly and easily send an SMS to a patient, which is a great way for a personalised follow-up immediately after an appointment or perhaps prior to an appointment if there is something they need to bring along.
- Go to the patients’ dashboard either by searching for them in the patient list or clicking their name from an appointment on the calendar.
- Hover over the green ‘Create New’ button at the top of the screen next to their name and a drop-down will show with some options.
- Click ‘Send SMS’ and a pop-up will show with their mobile number pre-filled if it is on file.
- Enter the SMS message and click ‘Send’.
