Appointment Reminder Messages are part of the Patient Communications function and are sent to patients via email and text message to remind them of an upcoming appointment. Patients are prompted to confirm the appointment from within the message, which updates the appointment status in Kareo to Confirmed in the Agenda and Calendar. You can set the number of days before an appointment that this reminder is sent, as well as select the option to send an additional notice if the patient has not confirmed.
Note: In order for a patient to receive patient communications:
- Automated patient communication preferences must be set on the Profile tab of the patient's Demographics page.
- Messages are sent to the email address and home and mobile phone numbers entered on the Profile tab of the patient's Demographics page.
