UMC Cares Patient Alerts sent via SMS Text Message

UMC provides patients with various informational messages via SMS. These messages and alerts are used to provide patients with relevant and timely information related to their care and include alerts such as appointment reminders, video visit invitations and notifications to check UMConnect for new information.

The messages are sent when relevant medical and/or administrative information needs to be communicated to the patient. They are typically sent in a three-day period surrounding the relevant activity.

Patients may OPT OUT of the text messaging service at any time by replying to a text message with the word STOP.

There is no charge for the service from UMC, but message and data rates may apply for SMS text messages received by the patient.

UMC and mobile phone carriers are not responsible for delayed or undelivered messages, and UMC never relies on the delivery or receipt of such messages in delivering the world-class care it provides.

These messages and alerts are protected under UMC’s Privacy Policy.
