New Appointment Reminder System
OMC will be implementing a new appointment reminder system for appointments scheduled on 02/03/20 and forward. The new system offers the option for text message reminders as well as phone calls. Patients will have the option to confirm or decline their appointments, which then allows automatic updates to OMC MyChart from their responses. On January 23, changes to the patient communication preference in OMC MyChart were made to allow for appointment reminders. Letters regarding this change, along with instruction on how to update communication preference in OMC MyChart, were mailed to all patients who had previously updated their appointment reminder communications.
Pharmacy App and Website for Refills
You can now fill your prescriptions at OMC's pharmacies by using RxLocal. It is available as an app for your mobile phone or as a website from your desktop computer. To download the app, visit your phone's app store. To use the website you can go to the RxLocal login page. Please note, you will need a separate login for the app and the website so it is recommended to choose only one of the two options.
