Making everyday life a little easier
Texting is making life better, period.
It’s a technology that’s been around for decades, but recently we’ve seen its potential fully realized as companies get creative with ways to use texts to make life better for humankind.
Think about doctors’ appointments in the 90s. No shows were a constant drain on clinical efficiency, costing providers thousands every year. And mitigating that by hounding patients to show up required an administrative staff to get on the phone and call patients one by one.
Now, texting has changed that. Yosi, a healthcare messaging platform based in California, found that implementing text confirmations and reminders reduces the no-show rate by up to 75%³ and saves $42,000 per physician annually.⁴
Turns out, a text a day keeps the doctor profitable and on time. But it’s not just providers who benefit: patients who show up actually get care. And save the hassle and cost of missed appointment fees and rescheduling with busy clinics.
