This week’s update debuts two new fields in “Yay! A New Patient”: ’email to text’ and ‘referred by.’ This feature will make the initial contact with a new patient more efficient. The ’email to text’ field is used to send text reminders to patients. Enter the patient’s 10 digit mobile number and the carrier’s email to text address in that field. The ‘referred by’ field allows you to quickly enter who referred the patient to your office. The referrals are tracked in Autumn8 by the referral report. To access these boxes, click ‘Yay! A New Patient’ on the appointment book screen of Autumn8.
