  PhoneReminder 1.0, appointment reminder software for OpenEMR, released
OpenEMR Posted by David Kennerson on Friday November 21, 2008 @ 10:51 PM
from the OpenEMR dept.
OpenEMR HQ, a small software startup in NE Oklahoma, announced the release of PhoneReminder for OpenEMR. PhoneReminder is add-in software to the OpenEMR medical records package that allows users to automatically notify patients by phone (voice or text message) of upcoming appointments. Digg this article

The software includes delivery security and confirmation options that allow users to verify the recipients identity prior to delivering the message, confirm delivery to the recipient, and allow the recipient to record a voice note to be delivered to the provider after the call. The software focuses on security and does not release any confidential information during the call.

PhoneReminder is available directly from OpenEMR HQ at a cost of $275 and includes 1 year technical support and configuration/installation assistance.

More information can be obtained by calling the company offices at (918) 919-4624 or emailing info@openemrhq.com.

    Is this software available under a FOSS license? -FT

    I have the same question, as Fred, if this is FOSS and the source available on openemr site.
    I have been using openemr since 2005, in a pediatric practice, and we have a 20 lines of python code that does call patient reminders, running as a cron task, that does AGI calls to our Asterisk server. I didn't think much of it, as a product, except for the lincense fee for Cepstral voice.
    I'll arrange to put my code at the openemr site.

      Yes, the code is GPL and is available on our site for download. I'll dig around and get a link set up here later today.

      It's not available on the OpenEMR Sourceforge site because it's not been submitted for inclusion yet. That should change this week though.
