Healthcare SMS, Voice, and In-app calling FAQ
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.
Bandwidth helps with more than just SMS for healthcare. We also provide MMS, 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.
Patients have strong preferences about the channel they want to communicate on at different points of their care cycle. Offering them options can improve their engagement and in turn, improve their health outcomes. For example, sending appointment reminders is a great way to decrease no-shows and ensure patients show up at the right time. Phone call is still the preferred channel for contacting and being contacted by healthcare providers, per a 2023 survey.
Simply put, using technology can massively improve the patient experience.
Building scalable and innovative communications use cases into a patient engagement platform can be challenging, which is why Bandwidth is here to help. Our user interface means that anyone with web development skills can get started creating voice and/or and text messaging applications. We make sure to provide you with helpful pieces of sample code, how-to guides, SDKs, and API documentation to get you going.
