In today's fast-paced world, healthcare practitioners need to find ways to streamline patient communication and engagement. Fortunately, Akute Health's Schedule Send feature can help! This feature allows practitioners to easily schedule SMS messages for the future, making it easier to check in on patients, remind them about prescriptions, schedule follow-ups, and more. In this post, we'll explore the benefits of using Akute Health's Scheduled Send for SMS feature and how it can improve patient engagement and satisfaction.
Save Time and Increase Efficiency
Manually sending SMS messages to patients every day can be time-consuming and tedious. Akute Health's Schedule Send feature helps you save time and increase efficiency by allowing you to schedule messages for the future. You can create a series of messages - or just one message - in advance and schedule them to be sent at the right time. For example, you can remind patients about appointments, check-ins, or upcoming procedures, all with just a few clicks.
Improve Patient Engagement and Satisfaction
Effective communication is essential for patient engagement and satisfaction. Schedule Send makes it easy to communicate with patients and keep them engaged. You can use this feature to check in on patients after a visit, ask for feedback, or send them links to helpful resources. You can also use it to remind patients about upcoming appointments or follow-ups, reducing the likelihood of missed appointments or cancellations.
Increase Medication Adherence
Medication adherence is a significant issue in healthcare. Patients often forget to take their medications or fail to pick up their prescriptions. Using Schedule Send can help you improve medication adherence by sending reminders to patients. You can remind patients to take their medications, pick up their prescriptions, or schedule follow-ups with their doctors. These reminders can be automated and scheduled in advance, reducing the burden on practitioners and patients alike.
How to Use Akute Health's Schedule Send Feature
Using Schedule Send feature is easy. First, navigate to a patient chart and click Patient —> Conversations on the lefthand navbar. Click into the conversation, type your message, and click the “down arrow” (🔽) to the right of the send button. From there, you’ll be able to schedule what time you’d like to send your message.
Once the messages are created and scheduled, Akute takes care of the rest. If Akute knows the patient’s location, we will send this SMS message in their local time zone, too!
