New Appointment Reminder App Reduces Missed Appointments, Enhances Doctor/Patient Communication
Talksoft Corporation's new app offers doctors and patients a newer, better way to communicate that, among other features, can help reduce the number of missed appointments, especially during inclement weather. Aptly named Talksoft Connect the app provides customers advanced preference settings, on-screen directions, and appointment detail information. It is now a part of Talksoft's suite of automated reminder services.
“One of the most desirable features of Talksoft Connect for our clients and their patients is that it enables them to view appointments from multiple service providers in one place,” says Steve David, Chief Technology Officer at Talksoft. “They can then confirm appointments, set contact preferences, get pre-visit instructions and turn-by-turn directions to the office. This is a good way to further reduce 'no show' rates, create more time/cost efficiency, and increase staff productivity while communicating with patients in the way that they prefer. We’ve found that the use of reminders other than voice can more than double the response rate.”
The app is a valuable addition to the company’s suite of reminder services, which, David says, proved extremely useful in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. “Our clients in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York City could reach out to their affected customers in a matter of minutes,” he says, “to alert them that their offices would be closed due to power outages. With winter approaching and snowstorms on the horizon, now is a great time to subscribe to our message reminder services.”
According to David, the patent-pending technology for the app is trailblazing for the appointment reminder industry. Talksoft Connect is exclusive in the way it certifies the identity of the user and locates appointments with participating service providers.
Talksoft's suite of services are cost/time efficient and suitable for any business of any size, from a small, part-time office to larger institutions. For additional information, call 866-966-4700 or visit www.talksoftonline.com.
