Your Health Records at Your Fingertips: Information on the Online Portal
UChicago Student Wellness strives to make it convenient for students to request appointments, communicate with clinicians, and access health records.
We are pleased to announce that during the 2020-21 academic year, we will be moving to one integrated health record system for all your activity with UChicago Student Wellness: my.WellnessPortal. This integrated platform allows us to facilitate comprehensive, holistic care, and will enable many convenient features including online appointment scheduling, single-sign-on using your CNetID, and secure messaging with your clinicians.
After we fully transition all services to the my.WellnessPortal, students will be able to:
- submit required immunization records;
- view and print immunization history;
- complete health histories and required consent forms;
- communicate securely with UChicago Student Wellness providers and staff;
- use self-check-in kiosks in the new Student Wellness Center;
- complete intake forms for counseling appointments; and
- schedule many types of appointments online (to be rolled out in phases during the 2020-21 academic year).
Transition from MyChart
Once the transition to my.WellnessPortal is complete later in the 2020-21 academic year, students will no longer use MyChart (through UChicago Medicine) for their UChicago Student Wellness records. Until that time, students should continue using MyChart for their medical records but can begin using my.WellnessPortal for their counseling and immunization records. More information on this transition will be posted here as the project advances. (After that time, patients of UChicago Medicine will continue to use MyChart for any care received at UChicago Medicine.)
Online appointment scheduling for medical appointments at UChicago Student Wellness remain available via MyChart during this transition.
Students can currently submit proof of thier required immunizations via the my.WellnessPortal. Instructions for submitting documentation is at the bottom of this page under Using the Portal.
Counseling and Psychiatry
Students can check in to their appointments and connect to Zoom for their counseling or Psychiatry sessions through the my.WellnessPortal. Students will also receive appointment reminders from the portal and can communicate directly with their providers via secure messaging.
Documents requiring student attention or completion will be listed in the “Medical Clearances” or “Forms” sections of the portal. Students may also need to complete a survey shortly before their appointment; if so, it will be available to complete in the “Survey Forms” section.
Intake and group appointments for selected services will be available to schedule online this autumn. Until then, students should continue to schedule their counseling and psychiatry appointments by calling 773.702.9800.
Due to the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reevaluating the timeline for switching from MyChart to my.WellnessPortal. We expect the transition to be complete by the end of the 2020-21 academic year. Until that time, students should continue using MyChart for their medical records.
Existing patients who have had a medical (not counseling or psychiatry) visit with UChicago Student Wellness in the past twelve months can make future medical appointments online through their MyChart account. To make an appointment online, simply log in to your MyChart account by going to mychart.uchospitals.edu, and select “Schedule an Appointment” under the “Visits” menu or in the right-hand column under “Quick Links.” Then follow the prompts to select the type of appointment you need.
Please note that not all appointments can be scheduled online. If you do not see the type of appointment you need as an option, or do not find a suitable time, please call UChicago Student Wellness and speak with a Wellness Coordinator. Additionally, all new patients and patients who have not visited UChicago Student Wellness in the past twelve months must call 773.834.WELL to schedule their visit.
