    Scheduling appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine is at the top of everyone’s mind, but setting up appointments at scale is a challenge. In this post, you will learn how to build a prototype of an interactive appointment management system using Twilio Programmable Voice and Programmable Messaging. Patients will be able to reply back to confirm, cancel, or reschedule their appointments and make outgoing calls to the number provided. With this in place, you also optimize the physician’s unused time slots due to 11th hour cancellations.

    It shouldn’t. In this post, I’m going to show you how to build a demo IoT medicine tracker. While you'd have to build more …
