Solution:

1. This will be an iPhone App.
2. When your customer signs up, she gets an email address.
3. Whenever your customer goes to the doctor, she can request to send her appointment by email to this email address.
4. Some doctors cannot send by email so, they write in a small appointment card.
4.1 Your customer can just take a photo from your app and you can convert to text.
5. Behind the scenes, you app processes all these emails and photos and automatically updates his calendar.
6. Your customer will be reminded by text and email 1 day before and on the same day of the appointment.
