Now, you can easily send automated appointment reminders (phone call or text message) from your schedule in Netsmart TIER System. In a few simple steps, you can generate your export file for 1-800 Notify so you can easily send appointment reminders to all your patients.
What if a mobile phone is in the Home Phone field? We can auto-detect if the phone number you entered is a valid mobile phone or a land line (even if it's in the home phone field). If it's a mobile phone and you want us to send a text message reminder, we'll do it.
