GREAT NEWS: Changes coming in 2021 to Zoom for Health


U-M Zoom has been approved for PHI (HIPAA data). As a result, Zoom for Health at U-M will be consolidated into regular U-M Zoom on January 2 and 3, 2021.

New Features

Thanks to collaborative efforts of U-M and Zoom, you now will be able to use expanded features, such as:

  • Cloud recording
  • Live transcription
  • Viewing identifying information in reports
  • Ability to assign scheduling privileges and alternative host privileges to anyone at U-M
  • One Zoom integration in Canvas

Temporarily Offline: Jan 2 at 11pm thru Jan 3 at 6am

Zoom for Health users’ accounts will be migrated into regular U-M Zoom beginning January 2 at 11pm and continuing until January 3 at 6am. Your Zoom account will not be available during this time. 

After the migration is completed, Zoom for Health will no longer exist and all U-M Zoom users will be in the same account.

Upcoming and Previous Meetings / Webinars

  • Your upcoming and previous meetings and webinars and your personal meeting ID and link will not be impacted. They will migrate with your account.
  • People (including alternative hosts) will still be able to join future-scheduled meetings using the URL you have already provided--no need to resend.

Zoom for Epic

This change does not apply to using Zoom through MiChart (Zoom for Epic). Nothing will change with how you use Zoom through MiChart.
