Title

Text-messaging versus telephone reminders to reduce missed appointments in an academic primary care clinic: a randomized controlled trial

Abstract Telephone or text-message reminders have been shown to significantly reduce the rate of missed appointments in different medical settings. Since text-messaging is less resource-demanding, we tested the hypothesis that text-message reminders would be as effective as telephone reminders in an academic primary care clinic.
