/24-7PressRelease/ — Doctorconnect.net is an interactive appointment reminder service using two-way text/SMS, voice, and email communications to decrease no-show appointments at medical clinics. The new service will encourage patients to schedule preventative care and annual check-ups. The system is designed to interface with clinic’s current practice management software to create revenue without staff involvement.

The preventative care messaging service in Doctorconnect.net will access existing patient database to find patients with appointment types or diagnostic codes that meet the parameters for patients likely needing vaccinations, annual examinations, or other preventative care. The system will then send an informational message about the advantages of scheduling care with the clinic. The message will be delivered in the patient’s preferred method and language.

Ross Manley, Vice President for AdTel, said, “Physicians’ practices have asked doctorconnect.net to remind patients of preventative care needs to increase quality of care and increase clinic’s revenue. The process for the office staff is a simple file transfer and once a message template is designed no further action is needed. The messages are delivered at the predefined time and date interval. The physician’s direct communication to the patients creates a personal touch and help the patient feel the physician’s interest in their well-being.”

DoctorConnect is a subsidiary of AdTel International, Inc. that provides text, voice or email reminders to patients of upcoming scheduled appointments, reminders of vaccination schedules, re-care reminders, notices of availability of test results, notices of prescription refills, and notices of appointment schedule changes. The system allows patients to confirm appointments automatically or request a change in appointment time if necessary. The service is used by a variety of healthcare providers in a wide range of specialties and general medical practice as well as dentists, veterinarians, chiropractors, therapists, and home health providers.
