And now, you can connect My UNC Chart to your Apple Health App to better track your daily health information.

Making an Impact.

We make seeing a doctor more convenient by offering virtual visits—so you can talk to a board-certified physician anytime, anywhere. As North Carolina’s health system, our team of physicians, nurses and hospitals are never too far away.
