NHS England reduced its medical appointment DNA (did-not-attend) rates by 20% and saved 750,000 pounds through appointment rescheduling. 50% of their canceled appointments were rescheduled via SMS, and 91% of study respondents said that they would be open to last-minute appointments.
Here’s how you can automate your appointment reminders and cancellations.
