New Online Appointment Scheduling

BMD’s new online appointment scheduling system revolutionizes how clients access healthcare services. Powered by the NextPatient platform, BMD’s online booking ensures that patients can book appointments with ease, without the need for phone calls or appointment requests. Following are some key features of our new online scheduling system: 

Next-Day Appointments 


One of the standout features of BMD’s online scheduling system is the availability of next-day appointments, ensuring that our clients can access timely care when needed. Whether clients prefer a specific provider or location, the system offers a user-friendly interface that allows them to select appointments based on their preferences. The inclusion of providers’ bios and headshots provides patients with valuable information to make informed decisions about their healthcare. Additionally, the online booking widget powered by NextPatient takes convenience to the next level. Patients can view real-time availability, ensuring that the times shown are truly open and eliminating the frustration of finding unavailable time slots. The system also intelligently fills last-minute cancellations, maximizing appointment availability. Perhaps the most impressive aspect is that clients can book appointments outside BMD’s business hours, providing them with the flexibility they desire. With BMD’s new online appointment scheduling feature, clients can enjoy the ease and convenience of booking appointments online, making the process seamless and hassle-free.


Advanced Reminders and Texting 


This feature extends beyond basic functionality by offering advanced reminders and texting capabilities. This feature enables the reminders to do more work for the healthcare providers and their staff. With NextPatient, patients have the convenience to confirm, cancel, and reschedule their appointments directly through the reminders they receive. This empowers patients to take control of their schedules and helps dramatically decrease the no-show rate, ensuring optimal utilization of resources. The tool also allows for the customization of reminders based on the type of visit, ensuring that patients receive tailored messages that resonate with their specific needs. With NextPatient’s advanced reminders and texting feature, BMD’s online appointment scheduling tool takes patient engagement and appointment management to a new level, enhancing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the healthcare practice.


Reputation Management 


This platform also consists of a robust reputation management feature that helps healthcare providers boost their online reputation. With this tool, providers can easily send post-visit surveys to patients automatically, allowing them to gather valuable feedback and insights. By encouraging clients to leave reviews, BMD will be able to track patient satisfaction, including utilizing the Net Promoter Score (NPS) to gauge overall client loyalty and advocacy, leading to increased trust and confidence among potential clients.

TouchMD: What Are The Patient Features?

BMD’s new TouchMD app provides patients with a comprehensive and secure platform for education and communication. Separate from the online scheduling tool, this app offers a range of patient-centric features. With myTouchMD, patients can access their accounts through an online web portal or smartphone app. The app allows for secure photo sharing, enabling patients to communicate visually with their healthcare provider. Additionally, patients can explore detailed information about procedures and services offered by their doctor, review recommended topics tailored to their needs, and access a personalized timeline that captures each consultation. 

Accessing the account is easy by setting up a password provided in a welcome email from “TouchMD Messages.” The app lets patients conveniently view their timeline, including images, recommendations, reviews, and consent forms related to their consultations. They can also add photos, explore educational materials on various topics, and access contact information. BMD’s TouchMD app ensures that patients have a user-friendly and informative resource that enhances their engagement and communication with their healthcare provider.

TouchMD: Patient Resources

BMD’s new TouchMD app provides patients with a wide range of valuable resources and features to enhance their healthcare experience, such as: 


  • TouchMD Consult, the patient education software, simplifies communication between patients and healthcare providers, allowing for a comprehensive understanding of procedures, treatment options, and expected outcomes.
  • TouchMD Snap enables consistent and secure storage of patient photos, showcasing their transformations and providing visual evidence of progress. 
  • TouchMD Consents is another resource that digitizes consent forms and streamlines the consent process, eliminating the need for paper-based documentation. 
  • Integrated Telehealth through TouchMD Reach enables virtual consultations, delivering a seamless remote experience that exceeds expectations. 
  • TouchMD Blast enhances patient marketing efforts by sending targeted push notifications that cut through the noise, ensuring essential messages reach patients effectively. 


With these comprehensive patient resources, BMD’s TouchMD app empowers patients with information, enhances communication, and improves overall engagement in their healthcare journey.
