09/28/2018 Appointment Reminders via Text Message

Two-thirds of healthcare organizations use text messages for patient appointment reminders, in many cases meeting patient preferences for office communication, according to a recent Medical Group Management Association poll.

The poll of over 1,600 healthcare organizations found that 66 percent of organizations have adopted text message technology to send appointment reminders to their patients. In many cases, text message adoption came at the behest of a clinic’s patient populations.

While most organizations use text messages exclusively for appointment confirmation, a small few allow patients to confirm, cancel, or request a reschedule via text.

09/19/2018 Interesting Study Regarding the Behavior of Texting - Why Are People Dependent on Texting?

According to Dr. Andrew Ledbetter, there are five attitudes people can hold about online communication. People vary on how much they hold each of these five attitudes. Those variations can come from the way a person grew up communicating with their family or that person’s competence or skill at communicating with others.

1. The attitude of self-disclosure refers to the anxiety people may have about sharing personal and private information online.
2. The attitude of apprehension refers to feelings of dread or fear of communicating online.
3. The attitude of miscommunication refers to beliefs about how common misunderstandings and conflict are when communicating online because online communication makes it difficult for people to understand one another.

09/17/2018 Text Messaging Added to Legislation

In a ruling that increases liability for companies that use text messaging for marketing or communicating with customers, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit adopted an expansive definition of what constitutes an automatic telephone dialing system—or ATDS—under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. In Marks v. Crunch San Diego, the court held that any equipment that has the capacity to dial numbers from a stored list, such as a database of numbers, is an ATDS under the TCPA. The Sept. 20 ruling creates a split among the Courts of Appeals as to the scope of the TCPA that could lead to resolution by the Supreme Court.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act
The TCPA prohibits unsolicited calls advertising property, goods, or services using an ATDS and prerecorded messages to residential and cellular phones. The Federal Communications Commission has interpreted the TCPA’s restriction to apply to both voice calls and text calls to wireless numbers, including text messages.

One in three teen drivers in the US text while driving, new survey data suggest. And the number may be higher in states where teens start driving at younger ages.

Researchers surveyed 101,397 teens age 14 and up, from 35 states, who had driven a vehicle in the past 30 days. All but one of the states had banned text messaging for drivers under age 21. Still, 38% of the teens said they had texted while driving at least once.

09/12/2018 Text Messaging for Diabetes Care

Q: What are some considerations for implementing or sustaining the use of a text messaging program?

A: There are different options. Providers can design their own text messaging program and have a server push the text messages out to their patients. Our approach was to partner with a technology partner. A technology partner can be a university, business, or nonprofit organization. They have the platform; the technology, and we received training.

An important aspect to consider with a text messaging program is how to sustain patient engagement. You don’t want text messages to become a nuisance. We found that having a variety of text messages is very important. Not only were patients getting reminders about things they should consider doing, such as exercising or taking their medications, but we also sent quizzes.

09/03/2018 Tracking Animals with SMS

Oftentimes, we think of the conservation of the old as incongruous with the use of newer technology like mobile devices. This is far from the case; in fact, GPS technology is being combined with text messaging to track both wildlife and livestock, a useful tool to keep an eye on both the farm animals we depend on and the increasing number of endangered or threatened species.

One device conservationalists are using to keep tabs on wildlife is cellular GPS collars. Cellular collars are affixed to animals, which then use GPS to calculate the animal's coordinates. This information is relayed to researchers via SMS. The frequency of text message updates can be controlled by the researchers. When an animal wearing a collar moves out of cellular range, a beacon transmitter is automatically activated, using radio tracking to monitor the animal's location.

One church in Illinois is notably using text messaging to resolve a problem. St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church, located in Crystal Lake near Chicago, has noticed a sharp increase in the number of attendants only during major Christian holidays, and hopes to retain those who come only on days like Christmas and Easter.
