You wouldn’t think getting patients to show up for an appointment they scheduled themselves would be difficult. But practices know the frustrating truth. Patients consistently fail to come.
Unfortunately, just one no-show every day costs practices anywhere from $40,000 to $100,000 per provider in annual revenue. It also messes up your schedule and adds another piece of chaos to your day. It shouldn’t be this way.
Office managers, doctors, and even research studies all teach us the same thing...automated appointment reminders are the easiest way to cut back on no-shows.
Did you know that 52% of patients who don’t show up for appointments simply forgot? That’s why automated appointment reminders cut no-show rates so drastically. They keep patients from forgetting! Not only that, but patients can easily confirm or cancel and reschedule—without you needing to do anything.
We wouldn’t be surprised if automated reminders becomes one of your most valuable team members.
