How to Send Bulk Text

zHealth Software built the ability to send bulk text messages to your active patients (active patients who have a mobile number added to their patient charts) within a portal. Bulk Texting is available to admin users under your User Name on the top right corner > Send Bulk Text.

Here is how you can send the bulk text to your active patients:

1. Access your zHealth Dashboard. Hover the cursor over your name on the top right corner and then click "Send Bulk Text" from the drop-down menu.

2. On the Bulk Text window, enter the following details to send a bulk message to active patients:

a. SMS Message - This is the space where you need to type your personalized message. Start typing your message and if you want to add a new line, click Enter/Return. Our Bulk Texting tool can handle line breaks properly.
Number of Patients* - This shows the total number of active patients who will be sent this text message.
c. Fee to send the message - Based on the characters in your text message, here you can view the fee to send the message.
d. Character count - It will display the total character count of the SMS message you typed in the box.
e. Cost per 160 characters - It will cost you $39 for 160 character message for one-time use.
f. Click the checkbox to agree with the term that zHealth can charge your credit card for the bulk SMS sent using our Bulk SMS feature.
g. Review the message and all the details and click "Review and Send". 
By default, the message will be sent to active patients in your portal.
*Note: The bulk text will not be sent to the active patients who have replied "STOP" (or unsubscribed) to one of your previous text messages/reminders.
