This option can help those patients with chronic problems by sending them reminders on issues that need to be taken care of. For example, the provider can put an alert into their system to remind the patient when they need to refill their prescription, come in for a check-up, make an appointment with a specialist or contact their office.

Anyone can always use this reminder to help them, especially when it is to help them keep up on their health. Of course not every patient will want to sign up for this service. Some people like privacy or do not want to use technology to send personal information.
