Health Care Professionals
During this time of heightened uncertainty and isolation, you can connect with your patients and colleagues on WhatsApp—the same tool they are using to stay close to friends and family.
Please use WhatsApp responsibly while connecting with your customers. Only communicate with users you know and those who wish to receive messages from you, ask customers to save your phone number in their address book, and avoid sending automated or promotional messages to groups. Not following these simple best practices could result in complaints from other users and possibly an account ban.
To best manage multiple questions, feature helpful information like business hours and store frequently used answers, we recommend using the WhatsApp Business app, which is free to download.
