This was a popular post a while back and had quite a bit of interest so I am reposting for those who missed it the first time.
Why am I blogging about SMS on a healthcare blog? Many don’t realize they can send a text message from your computer to a cell phone, and it can be very helpful at times. When you are on your computer, why stop and and pick up the cell phone to send a quick text message? I see this happen all the time, as many doctor’s offices are relying more on text messaging, I will see the office person working on the PC, then drop everything, stop and pick up a cell phone to text. Sometimes this is ok, but it can be inconvenient too at times.
I used Outlook here as a simple example and you will also have a copy of your message in your “sent” folder too. Also, for those who are not text messaging from cell phones, any PC user can do this. All you need to know is who the wireless carrier is and the cell phone number and off you go. BD
Here are a few examples as to how you can accomplish this quick and easy.
