Patients to begin receiving text message appointment reminders on June 27

On June 27, patients at UNC Health Care locations using Epic@UNC who list a cell phone number as their preferred number will begin receiving appointment reminders via text message. Currently, patients receive an automated phone call to their primary number (landline or mobile) two days prior to a scheduled appointment.
