Healthcare SMS, Voice, and Video FAQ

What is SMS for healthcare?

SMS for healthcare refers to the ability to programmatically send text messages to fellow staff members, patients, or other healthcare providers via a platform or application. SMS presents a great way to improve overall communication and patient engagement. Text messages like SMS or MMS enable quick and easy appointment reminders, updates on results, or other important alerts and notifications.

What other services can I use for my healthcare-related use cases?

Bandwidth helps with more than just SMS for healthcare. We also provide MMS, video, voice, emergency and in-browser calling services for healthcare business providers. Use these services to best engage with your staff and/or patients and better the overall environment of care.

Why should I use video, voice, or messaging for healthcare?

There are many benefits of text messaging in healthcare and other forms of digital communication. For example, sending appointment reminders is a great way to decrease no-shows and ensure patients show up at the right time. Video calls enable patients to effectively communicate their concerns to a provider while increasing their access to care with no location restrictions.

In summary, using technology can massively improve the patient experience.

Why use Bandwidth for telehealth communication and messaging?

Our user interface means that anyone with web development skills can get started creating voice, video and/or and text messaging applications.
