How It Works

Patient Data Management

Create patient profiles and keep them updated with or without an integration. Maximize your reach by verifying if a number is actually a mobile or landline.

Welcome Patients & Manage Opt-Outs

Introduce your clinic and give patients the option to “opt-out” during the first interaction. Our opt-out technology recognizes a broad range of opt-out phrases including “wrong patient” or “wrong number” that goes beyond the word "stop".

After the global opt-out through the welcome message, we offer patients the option to opt-out by feature during their messaging lifetime. Our automated error messages remind patients they can opt-out at any time.

Engage in real-time text conversations with patients to help coordinate care or schedule appointments. Give patients an avenue to proactively reach out when they need help or want to request an appointment.

You control which patients you give access to by sending them the first direct text message. From then on, patients have a designated number that never changes.

Be notified of incoming messages for yourself and other team members on a schedule that works for you (minutes, hourly, daily). Set an automated response outside of clinic hours.
