Introducing WhatsApp Patient Reminders in MyOPD Clinic Software

Frustrated that patients don’t have a look at your SMS reminders anymore?

MyOPD Clinic Software sends automated patient reminders via WhatsApp

Providing a reminder service as a part of your clinic’s activity is a great service to the patient. It helps them remember their follow-up dates, vaccination dates, ultrasound dates, appointment dates and so on.

A timely reminder goes a long way in adherence to medical treatment.

MyOPD already had a SMS reminder system. However, with the explosion of SMS for reasons beyond our control, patients often tend to miss the SMS delivered to them.

To solve this very issue, we have introduced WhatsApp reminders.

The probability of message being read when delivered via WhatsApp increases manifold as compared to SMS. Also, similar to SMS in local language, WhatsApp messages will also be delivered in local language based on your setting in MyOPD Software.

Below are some screenshots of how the message would look when the user receives it:

Easy calling by user to the Clinic’s phone number

Bonus Reason # 6: Consent Forms & Hospital Functioning Reports

If you have reached this far while reading, we are going to share a Bonus Reason.

  • Bed Number
  • Admitted Under Doctor Name

that keep changing from Patient to Patient. MyOPD Beds allows you to print these forms by using details of patient already entered in the System. This reduces time and errors that your staff may introduce while creating consent forms.

Free Clinic Software – Does it exist?

I would rather go to a Doctor who charges me fees than a quack who says he will treat me for free! – Anonymous

When our team interacts with Doctors who have downloaded software as a part of trial, some of them expect a Free Clinic Software. This article is to shed light on the aspect of such free software solutions.

Here are 5 points you should consider while evaluating Free Clinic Software Solutions.

1. Free Clinic Software Solutions as Hobby Projects

These are hobby projects done by College Graduates as a part of their Final Year Projects. You may encounter this situation when you have your friend’s son or friend’s friend’s daughter doing such projects.

The issue is, the people who work on such projects often get placed in companies. Then, there is no one to take care of the hobby project.

It is like buying a vehicle without any mechanic to take care in case there is a problem.

In our opinion, you should clearly stay away from such solutions as they are going to hurt you in long run.

2. New Improvements to Free Clinic Software Solution

Software needs to undergo regular changes. Changes are necessary because of

  • Operating System Upgrades: Recent most Windows upgrades happened from Windows 7 to Windows 8, then 10 then 11 and so on. If you are using a Android / iOS app then those operating systems have undergone several changes year after year. Someone has to make sure that the software works well on each of these OSes.
  • Changing Market Requirements: Prior to COVID, sharing prescription as a PDF with Patients was never considered. Now, it is a standard requirement in any Clinic Software Solution. This is just one example. As you practice, there could be several improvements and suggestions that come to your mind. These improve the productivity of Doctors as they practice.

To check a list of improvements done over last few months to MyOPD Software, check

Will the Free Clinic Software Solutions able to handle them?

3. Ongoing Support

Any solution that does not have support system is doomed to fail. Will you ever purchase a Car without any Service Network? No wonder that the best sold cars are those that have excellent service network along with being a good product themselves.

To read more about why you should be worried about after sales Product Support, read our dedicated article on this topic

4. Feature Limitations

Some Vendors offering FREE Clinic Software add restrictions and limitations to the use. As long as you are able to work within those limitations, you may still get a free clinic software for use until you want to use the feature which is in the paid version. We can call such Free Clinic Software solutions, Temporarily FREE.

MyOPD Clinic Software provides a FREE Trial. Such a trial works for a limited set of patients allowing you to evaluate the application and then decide if it suites your needs. You can download the FREE Trial by visiting

5. Data Privacy

Last but not the least, Data Privacy is probably the most important point you should be concerned about. The questions you should ask yourself about the free clinic software solution are:

  1. Is my data safe with the vendor?
  2. Is the vendor going to share my data with Third Party?
  3. Will my clients get direct calls / messages from Vendors to sell products / services that could be affecting my business.

Trust between you and your Vendor is most important. After all, you are going to store your Patient’s Health Record and your Personal Financial transactions with the Patients when using Clinic Software. So make sure you choose wisely.

Android apps now have a Data Safety section on Google Playstore. Vendors have to declare what they collect from you and what is shared with third party. Make sure you check it out. To give you an idea, check the MyOPD ZIP Android app Data Safety section on Google Play at


  • Always remember, there is nothing that comes for free. Someone, somewhere, certainly pays the price.
  • As long as you pay the price in software charges, you know what you are paying for.
  • When you use the software for free and unknowing pay in a different way, be careful and know what you are getting into before making use of such a solution.

Announcements and Clinic Updates

We have already covered SMS Reminders for Patients in MyOPD Clinic Software in our earlier blog post Types of SMS for Patients using MyOPD Clinic Management Software – MyOPD™ Updates

This article talks specifically about cases where Doctors want to send Bulk SMS updates to patients. The picture below highlights some of these use cases.

Case 1: Doctor Not available in the Clinic

This is the most common use case. Doctors often have to go to medical conferences or go on vacations. Patients end up visiting clinics in these times. This type of SMS helps Doctors to inform patients beforehand regarding their unavailability.

Case 2: Visiting Doctor available in Clinic / Hospital on a particular day

Many Hospitals have specialists visiting them on certain days in a month. Many Doctors themselves visit different cities for their personal OPD consultations. This type of SMS can be used to inform patients about the availability of visiting Doctors. Patients can call the appointment number in SMS so that the appointments are lined up before the Doctor visits.

Case 3: Update to Clinic Timings

Lockdowns have now become realities. In such cases, there could be changes to the timing for which clinic operates. Inform patients of the change in your clinic timings. However, usually, this case is not that often compared to the 2 other cases mentioned above.

Case 4: Change in clinic address

This is a rare scenario. However, when it happens, you would need this feature the most. Informing patients about the new location via SMS is in the best interest of the Doctor as well as the patient.

MyOPD Software allows you to send such SMS to your patients at a click of a button. Improved patient care in terms of service from the clinic is a need of the hour as well. MyOPD helps you in this aspect of your practice as well.
