The use of automated reminders has transformed not only business automation in healthcare, but the patient experience as well. Providers know their patients are busy and may not be diligent in remembering the appointments they have for care. The use of text, e-mail, or physical reminder cards can prove significant in lowering the amount of scheduling mishaps and problems. These reminders can be a mix of professional and fun. Also, they can be relevant to the time of year, season, or holiday. Below, you will find several different appointment reminder template ideas you may want to utilize in your own. If you have an automated appointment reminder software like Weave offers, setting these templates up can be extremely simple.
As technology continues to improve over time, we have found that text message reminders are the best format for success. That doesn’t mean that you should stop sending email reminders, because everyone tends to use difference communication channels. Also, people demand more from text messages than emails, so please use as much personalization to make the message as helpful as possible.
After reviewing the multitude of template ideas, you will observe the many different ways you have to remind patients of their appointments. A mix of professional and fun might be the most suitable for your practice. Either way, when a consistent, relevant, and modern reminder approach is executed, you will see less scheduling problems in the future. Connecting and communicating with your patients on a regular basis will be a cornerstone to the experience they have with you and your business.
There are a number of reasons that an appointment reminder software is more successful than a postcard, and even more reasons that customizable automated appointment reminders (like Weave’s) increase that success.
Text message reminders and email reminders are typically delivered right to the person you’re trying to reach. Postcards, however, are delivered to the address on file but aren’t guaranteed to get into the right person’s hands. For this reason alone, an appointment reminder software is usually a great solution for any business.
Two-way communication with Weave is much easier with a text message reminder than with a postcard. Not only is it easier, it’s faster.
With Weave’s reminder software, the customer or patient can just respond to the text reminder if they have any questions or if they need to change their appointment time or date.
With a postcard, the customer or patient is required to call into the office at a time that the office is open in order to have the same conversation.
Dental appointment reminders are one of the fastest and most effective ways of decreasing your no-show rate. Weave’s automated reminder system makes sending a text message reminder simple. These types of reminders are proven to decrease missed appointments.
This is a common question that medical professionals have. The answer is yes. In fact, there isn’t a specific way to set up reminders when it comes to HIPAA compliance. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has this to say about appointment reminder messages, “Yes, appointment reminders are considered part of treatment of an individual and, therefore, can be made without an authorization.” Keeping this in mind, it is still important to be cognizant of patient requests when it comes to automated reminders.

Text messages have a very high response rate, especially when they get to your customers and patients at times that are convenient for them. With Weave, you can set specific times of days that your text messages will go out to your customers. This means that your customers are more likely to respond to their reminder. Here are some of the options that you specify in Weave’s software:
You can determine how often your customers are getting text message reminders. You can send a reminder two days in advance, two weeks in advance, two hours in advance, or even all three. You decide what works best for your customers.
You can completely customize your messages, and even send different messages depending on the status of the customer. You can send one message if their appointment is confirmed, and a different message if their appointment is still unconfirmed.
