SMS & Voice Reminders

How can Magpi's data and messaging tools help you?

Patients not coming back for their clinic appointments? Have a hard time getting everyone to the staff meeting on time? Reports consistently submitted late? Data collectors forgetting to upload their data on time? Magpi makes it easy, and unbelievably inexpensive, to set up and send timed text and/or voice reminders for any reason.

Magpi allows you to easily set up automated reminders using text AND voice, cost-effectively and quickly

Studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of SMS and voice reminders for clinical and other purposes.  For example, a multi-center study in Cameroon demonstrated dramatic increases in clinic attendance for pediatric HIV patients when they received text+voice reminders. Unfortunately, the voice reminders in that study were done by clinic staff, and this was not cost-effective.  Other studies have confirmed these findings (Gurol-Urganci et al and Kannisto et al), though more research is needed (see this review published in 2014).  And here are just some additional papers demonstrating the utility of reminders & SMS messaging:

But regardless of whether you need automated reminders for clinical purposes, emergency coordination, or just to keep your staff on track, Magpi allows you to easily set up automated reminders using text AND voice, cost-effectively and quickly (and if you need to collect data, not just send messages, Magpi has two great ways to collect data with SMS).
