Appointment Notifications Certain departments within Horizon have a new appointment confirmation and reminder system. With consent, patients will receive an appointment confirmation asking if they will be attending their appointment, and reminders, by text message or email. Patients can opt out from receiving these notifications at any time by clicking “OPT OUT” at the bottom of each message. This new system will notify patients of their upcoming appointment in a way that is convenient and will improve access to patient services. Please note: While email and text messages are a convenient way to receive appointment reminders, they are not considered a secure form of communication. There is always some risk when sharing information electronically. Email appointment notifications are sent from ApptNotice.AvisRdv@HorizonNB.ca. Text messages will be sent from various phone numbers. For more information, and to see if this service is available to you, please contact the clinic where you receive services.
