July 31, 2008 · Posted in Scheduling · Comment 

Chart Links has partnered with mBox USA, Inc., a mobile phone application provider and maker of AutoRemind(tm), to develop an integrated appointment reminder system for Chart Links Rehabilitation Software.  The solution will reduce therapy appointment no-shows by sending text message (SMS), voice call, and email reminders to patients based on their communications preferences.

“An integrated and automated solution for therapy appointment reminders will help the rehabilitation facility decrease missed appointements while eliminating the high cost of manual processes,” says Ron Miller, M.D., Chart Links President and Chief Medical Officer.  “The solution will integrate seamlessly within our workflow management solution.  Increased attendance rates translate into revenue, improved patient outcomes, and improved patient communication.”
