We gather digital information about our patients simply as a byproduct of doing business. For example our computer knows the patient’s name, phone number, insurance coverage, birthday, employer and next scheduled appointment, plus a whole lot more. Once the data is in a digital form, a computer can be programmed to use it in a specific manner.

For example, the computer can see when a patient is scheduled for care and simply send a text message to the patient’s cell phone a day in advance. No additional data entry, no human writing messages or dialing phones is necessary. It is all done automatically with no humans involved.
