Birthday Emails is part of the Patient Communications function and is available only with Kareo's Engage module. Birthday emails are an easy way for providers to engage with patients yearly. The automated birthday feature is a good opportunity to remind patients their provider or the provider's practice is thinking about them. Birthday emails have been shown to drive more visits to a provider practice and increase patient satisfaction.

Available for Kareo Engage subscribers.
