Turn On Birthday Text

Birthday texts are an easy way for providers to engage with patients yearly. The automated birthday feature is a good opportunity to remind patients that your practice is thinking about them. Birthday emails have been shown to drive more visits to a provider practice and increase patient satisfaction.

  • Date of Birth and Mobile Phone Number must be entered on the Contact Details tab of the patient's Profile/Chart page.
  • Birthday Messages must be checked on the Contact Details tab of the patient's Profile/Chart page.
