I really urgently need more character allowances for text messaging to patients. Why are we limited to number of characters?

2018-1113 SMS messaging works differently than email or other messaging protocols. This is not a RingCentral problem, all providers offering SMS text messaging have the same technical limitations due to what transmission protocol is used (SMS).

You can sometimes type your message and make a screenshot of it and send that ... this is not a HIPPA compliant way but if it is non restricted communication requiring HIPPA Standard, it works for things like appointment confirmations.... Use the right tool for the requirements.

Remember it is not HIPPA Compliant. Check with your HIPPA Coordinator if you want to make sure you don't send something that way incorrectly.
