Appointment Calendar Files
Many EMRs and Patient Engagement systems don’t provide calendar files to patients (ICS files).
Non-elderly patients and regular caregivers expect they can download calendar files from medical practices.
Failure to put appointments on patient/caregiver calendars results in unnecessary no-shows.
Uses EMR data for the patient, practitioner, location, and appointment.
Links to the ICS files are provided in outbound emails and texts before the appointment.
Patients are reminded by visual and audible alerts on their phones, PCs, Macs, and iPads.
