SMS

ALL your patient messaging via a fixed cost, practice-dedicated SMS Sim card and hosted device.

Beyond the costs savings implicit in fixed cost messaging, another important benefit is that your patients will be receiving all their communication from the practice from 1 single number, increasing their confidence in the privacy of their data.

SMS SERVICES

AutoMed allows you to select which individual messaging services you would like to utilise to meet your most pressing needs. Significant discounts apply for bundled services.

AutoMed takes care of all of this for you; we activate, host, and monitor your dedicated SIM card in a purpose-built device.

Our pricing is per practice; the monthly cost of the SIM card and device is a direct cost recovery to our providers, AutoMed charges for the actual services it provides rather than a cost per message model.

AutoMed has a comprehensive internal opt-out system in accordance with communication guidelines; due the nature of the relationship between practice and patient, patients are inferred to be opted in until they opt out so long as they are aware of how to opt out.

When onboarding AutoMed services, a SMS campaign can be utilised to inform your active patient base on how to opt out; campaigns of this nature generally reduce opt outs to between 1 and 2%.

Certain patient replies will automatically opt the number out of all AMS Messaging, the practice can then opt patients back in to individual services according to their internal policies and patient preferences.
