SMS appointment reminders get language boost

We've all heard of text messages as reminders for doctor appointments, but this is even more fine tuned; taylored SMSs to the patients' own language. [via e-health insider].

"A GP practice in south London which is using text messaging to send out appointment reminders to its patients will soon start sending out SMSs in separate languages.

The Patient Care Messaging system, supplied by iPlato and running from the practice's EMIS database, has been used to send out flu jab prompts to patients at risk as well as appointment reminders, and is now to be updated with software to send out SMSs in the patients' own language."
