The Allure of SMS Text Messaging as an Appointment Reminder For Physicians

Medical practices are now estimating that yearly, they are losing up to $150,000 due to patient no-shows. In multi-physician facilities and clinics the amount can easily surpass $1 million. As one clinic reports that they had 14,000 no-shows over the course of one year, a staggering number that could be reduced by automated SMS text messages.

Rabbis Embrace Technology with Automated Synagogue Notifications

Although Rabbi is the Hebrew word for teacher, his role is much more complex in the Jewish community.
