Texting For Medical Offices
More and more medical offices are turning to text messaging because it allows them to send messages to their patients directly-- and they will read it in seconds! Message Launch is the most easy-to-use and cost-effective texting solution on the market, helping medical offices reach their patients quickly and effectively.
How Texting For Medical Offices Work
In order to message your patients, you need to get them to sign up for your texting program. With mobile keywords, you can collect opt-in mobile numbers automatically so your patients can sign themselves up to receive special promotions. This allows you to automatically grow your patient lists without having to manually enter information. You can also include an opt-in method on your forms. Plus you can promote your keywords through different channels like Facebook, Twitter, emails, and in your office.
*Due to HIPAA regulations, medical offices must be extra vigilant when texting patients.
