No-shows are a leading concern for businesses throughout the healthcare industry. Patients and customers will book themselves in, only to forget about the appointment and not turn up. While it might seem like a minor inconvenience, no-shows can affect a business's bottom line and lead to lost revenue, and patient dissatisfaction. In a recent blog post, AppointmentReminders.com has unveiled some key techniques, based on studies and aggregate data to help businesses prevent no-shows via appointment reminders
Learn the most effective techniques for reducing no shows
AppointmentReminders.com offers this template for free, and it is available to view and download through their website. The template is designed to provide the most effective techniques to use when sending out appointment reminders. It includes ideas and concepts that have been proven to work by the company through its customer base, and also in numerous randomized trials.
- Send out multiple reminders for an appointment
- Include the cost of a missed appointment in each reminder
- Use the appropriate outreach method (call, text, or email)
- Add the practice name and contact info to each reminder
- Monitor replies to appointment reminders and always follow up
By following these steps, AppointmentReminders.com is confident that all businesses can reduce the number of no-shows they see every single day. “Not only can you reduce your no shows by employing these techniques, but you can also free up staff resources and increase patient satisfaction” says Jonah Langer, Owner of AppointmentReminders.com.
A free template for multiple situations
At the end of the blog post detailing the tips and techniques to reduce appointment no-shows, there is a free template for multiple scenarios that businesses can utilize. In essence, there are actually three templates that should be employed together. One is for a reminder three days before the appointment, while the other two are for a day before. The reminders change slightly based on whether or not the patient confirms the previous reminder.
Each template can be copied and pasted, with key information easy to add in - such as the patient's name, practice name, date, and so on. By using these templates, AppointReminders.com is hoping to give companies a free way of ensuring patients turn up to appointments every single time.
