PHCC launches medication appointment SMS reminder service

As per QNA's report, the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has announced the launch of an SMS service to remind the patients of their medication schedule via the health centres' pharmacies that have already been automatically prescribed by the attending physician a week before the date of dispensing the medication.

Through this service, the patients are reminded again of the schedule for replenishing the prescribed medication three days before the exact schedule, either through visiting the health centre or through delivery services.
