Manage patient communication preferences

Healthcare practices and practitioners can use Halaxy to communicate via SMS or email for different purposes. Patients may receive appointment reminders, payment invoices, recalls, announcements, or even birthday greetings. However, some patients might have different preferences for what they want to receive from their practitioners.

To change this, you can set a patient's communication preferences in their profile.

Change communication preferences for a patient

  1. Open the patient profile.

  2. Under the section Communication & Reminders, next to Communication Preferences, click the Icon-Edit.svg Edit icon.
