Now, you can easily send phone call or text message appointment reminders from MEDITECH Ambulatory or Acute EHR. If you want to send affordable appointment reminder calls or text messages from MEDITECH, you can use the service from 1-800 Notify by simply exporting your daily schedule to a PDF file and uploading it to your HIPAA secure account at www.1800notify.com. It's very easy to setup and use. Once you get going, it just takes about 3 minutes a day to call and/or text all your MEDITECH patients!
VALIDATE MOBILE PHONE NUMBERS: If you choose, we can auto-detect if the phone number you entered is a valid mobile phone or a land line. If it's a mobile phone and you want us to send a text reminder, we'll do it.
