Mass message to groups of patients

Would be great to have the ability to send mass email/message to all patients or specified groups of patients. This would be helpful to inform them of vacations, acute changes in practice, location change, new services, etc.

    Being able to reach all my patients by email through this EHR would be a great functionality for me. I just changed clinic sites and need to let every patient know my new address--without their knowing one another's email addresses and other PHI.

    Agree that the ability to communicate via eMail to a group or all patients with messages, and not just appointment times to individuals, would be super helpful.

    This EHR is very practical and easy to use. We all like that and thanks to all the PF staff who have been working hard to provide us an excellent and easy to use EHR. Since we are now in the process of encouraging communications between the patients and the doctors office it would be a great update if we the providers can easily communicate with all the patients in the practice with a single stroke on the keyboard. It will save us from the enormous amount of expenses on just the postage alone not even considering the staff time saved. Furthermore, the communications will be documented on the charts. This will be very useful for providers who are retiring and providers who will be taking over the practice. Please work on this update as soon as possible.

    Yes, absolutely! For all of the reasons listed below: sudden clinic closures, changes in insurance acceptance, changes in hours, holiday hours, changes in staffing, wellness reminders

    At this moment Hurricane Maria pass thru Puerto Rico. Send notifications to all patient is crucial, but almost imposible send email one by one. I hope Practice Fusion could work on this feature asap. Thank you

    We would like to be able to send general e-mails to all patients to keep them informed of any changes that may affect their care in any way to give patients options and be able to receive the best possible care.

    I support mass messaging to patients!

  • Dr Dustin Sherman commented  · 

    This is necessary for office hours changes, vacation, and office updates. Please consider this change!

    Would like to add our name to the list concerning this recommendation. It would be extremely helpful to be able to send generic messages to large groups of patients.

    Essential tool for communication in practice with large patient volume.

    Thank you for addressing this important feature.

    Please create a way for practices to send out mass e-mails.

    Thank you,

    As previously suggested that ability to do mass mailings to the patients would be an invaluable tool Please Please Please!

  • Nutan Nadkarni commented  · 

    I agree - it is painful to copy/paste each email address to send a global mail to all patients. I had assumed this feature to exist since it is among the first few things any Practice would like to use their patient email addresses for.
    I am stunned to see this feature not to exist.

    We should have the ability to send a mass email to patients. We are moving the location of our practice and the actual move date is up in the air. It would be so nice to be able to do a mass email with this information.
