  • Rhinogram is a communication platform built specifically for doctors and patients. The software allows patients to send pictures or texts directly to office phones, contact their healthcare office on their website, communicate with patients through social media platforms such as Facebook Messenger, and more.  As patients can reach their doctors in so many different ways, it is easier for them to communicate the right course of treatment or for patients to express their needs to their healthcare provider.  
  • Improving communication with your patients is a simple and effective way to improve your medical practice. Here are some other ways to help foster client relationships.

4. My Mountain Mover, Booth #1028
