Some Facts about SMS Revolution

Some Facts about SMS RevolutionBack in 2001, only nine years after the first SMS was sent, the 13th president of Philippines, Joseph Estrada, was undergoing impeachment trial due to corruption charges. He refused to resign and when crucial evidence against him was presented, majority of the senators voted to have it blocked for the examination.

This was the moment when Filipinos were infuriated and they started gathering at the Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA). EDSA is a highway that connects five cities of Metro Manila. And due to this protest Joseph Estrada did step down. So you know what gathered enough people at EDSA for Estrada to resign and that too in such short time?

Why Use an Online Scheduler Tool in a Medical Clinic?

The online scheduler refers to the web-based appointment arrangement software. This makes work easier for the doctors. These devices are helpful to the doctors in scheduling the engagements in an easy way. Generally, by calling the doctor’s clinic, the patients fix the meetings. After the appointment, the operator fills up the patient information into the electronic calendar or paper reminder to fix the appointment. Whether doctors are setting up a consultation on their own or with the help of secretaries, the process takes a lot of time. Receiving and answering the calls, responding to patient’s mail, listening to voice messages and giving the reminder call takes a lot of time. This task is either taken care of by the doctor or a secretary. If the doctors are doing this work on their own, then they will not get adequate time for the meeting.

This makes it essential to use a scheduler that can manage the entire preparation without much effort. Clinics and hospitals always need receptionists to arrange the appointments. As the receptionist will only work during the office hours, any calls made before or after the period will remain unanswered. In many cases, the clinics have two receptionists who can work throughout the day in shifts. This in turn is a quite expensive way of managing the finances of the clinic. Instead of re-assigning the responsibilities, they use the tool to decrease the expenses of cutting down the staff needed for accomplishing the entire schedule.
