accuRx Chain SMS currently isn't able to send batch messages to many patients at once. We also don't yet support automatic appointment reminders, or campaigns.
Chain is designed for individual messages to the current patient brought up in EMIS or SystmOne, tailored to specific messages to one patient. This might be things you would previously have used a phone call or letter for, or might be a clinician sending a patient some specific advice.
Are you going to support it in the future?
We're likely to look at developing batch messaging in the future, but this will rely on CCGs covering the costs of the texts, to account for the numbers sent in bulk.
We're aware that lots of users are interested in this, and always take this into consideration 😊
