WEBSITE KEEPS CLINICS AND PATIENTS IN TOUCH
The CA Dept. of Public Health was funded by a major pharmaceutical firm to run a pilot project to determine if retesting and vaccination rates could be increased by using technology to improve communications with patients.
A website was developed up that sent scheduled text and email reminders for testing and vaccinations. The site was built to be easy for clinic administrators with limited computer skills to sign up new patients and run reports to gauge the program’s effectiveness.
