UHS News

UHS has gone PAPERLESS!

To make the check-in process more efficient and convenient for students (and the environment), the UHS is now using iPad check-in exclusively. When you arrive for your appointment, you can check-in on the iPads and do the following:

  • Update your phone number
  • Fill out consent forms
  • Answer a short questionnaire about your appointment 

Try our NEW TEXT MESSAGE APPOINTMENT REMINDERS!

The UHS can now send you appointment reminders and notifications about messages on your Patient Portal page! Other universities have implemented text messaging appointment reminders and have found that it decreases missed appointments and increases patient satisfaction!

Sign up is quick and easy:

  1. Sign in to the Portal with your my.emich username (netid) and password
  2. Click "Enable Text Messages" on your Home page, OR
  3. If you do not see the "Enable Text Messages" message, navigate to your Profile page and click the "Edit" button on the right of the line that says "Mobile Phone Carrier: Select Carrier to Enable Text Message Appointment Reminders"
  4. On the "Edit Mobile Phone" page, add your mobile phone number and then select your mobile phone carrier, then click "Continue"
  5.  Check that your mobile phone number and mobile phone carrier are correct, then click "Confirm"
  6. You will be taken back to your Profile page, where the Mobile Phone Carrier line will now say "Mobile Phone Carrier: [Your Mobile Phone Carrier] (Text Message Appointment Reminder Enabled)."

Congratulations! You have enable text message appointment reminders.

If, for some reason, you would like to disable text message appointment reminders, navigate to your Profile page and edit your Mobile Phone Carrier (see steps 3 through 5 above) to "None." Once you confirm this change, text reminders will be disabled.
