High patient satisfaction scores are one of the key indicators of an ASC’s success. Facilities are always looking for ways to increase patient satisfaction scores and are using technology to engage patients in their care.
Sending important pre- and post-op information to patients via text message is an easy way to engage patients in their care. Getting important information such as NPO reminders or medication reminders in advance of their procedure reinforces the information they receive prior to a procedure, ensuring they are compliant, but more importantly, creates a greater sense that they will receive the personal attention they are looking for. In addition to keeping patients satisfied and engaged in their care, communicating through text is an excellent way to save hours typically spent on the phone, allowing nurses to spend more time with patients.
