CareMessage uses mobile technology to improve the delivery of health care for low-income patients. Free clinics can use CareMessage to reduce no-shows, streamline the appointment process, and to educate patients outside the clinic setting. The benefits are lower costs to the clinic, better patient-clinic relations, and improved outcomes for the patient.
Clinic by the Bay, San Francisco’s VIM clinic, currently utilizes CareMessage’s text messaging to connect with patients and increase participation in monthly health education workshops. “We are thrilled to be partnering with CareMessage,” said a clinic spokesperson. “CareMessage is very user-friendly; it is simple to set-up with easy creation of custom bilingual messages, and is versatile.” She added, “The CareMessage staff has been very responsive with any technical assistance needs.”
