Enhancing Compliance: Simplifying Patient Engagement and Regulatory Adherence

Prior to an appointment, sending a text message reminding patients about their scheduled treatment is a proactive approach to enhancing compliance. These messages can include crucial details such as facility address, appointment time, and any compliance requirements like fasting or medication adjustments. Two-way texting further facilitates appointment management, allowing patients to confirm their attendance and their understanding of compliance requirements. Moreover, patients may find it more convenient to cancel appointments via text, especially when prompted by a message confirming their appointment or addressing concerns. Providing patients with the opportunity to cancel in advance helps ASCs fill open appointment slots.
