(Sept. 16, 2013) -- UTSA Student Health Services provides medical care and wellness programs to currently registered students. Staffed with physicians, a physician assistant, nurses and health educators, Student Health Services is committed to providing quality medical care and innovative health education to empower and support student success. There are two locations including a Downtown Campus clinic in Buena Vista Street Building Room 1.308 and the Main Campus clinic in Recreation and Wellness Center Room 1.500.
Student Health Services has developed an innovative phone-in triage program designed to improve service to students.
"We have now instituted a phone-in appointment system in which we no longer exclusively triage patients on a walk-in basis," said Beth Wichman, M.D., director of health services. "Patients can call us at 210-458-4142 to speak directly to a nurse and receive an appointment with a medical provider. Our commitment to excellence in service is about improving access to care and services with an emphasis on patient education while expediting necessary medical treatment."
A significant factor in the ability to implement these improvements is the use of the student electronic health record utilizing the Point and Click Solution system. This system has streamlined patient charting, security of records and patient flow in the clinics. This program also has streamlined patient appointments.
Student Health Services also announced the start of a flu vaccine campaign, which began Sept. 3. Vaccine is available for $10 for students and $15 for faculty and staff by appointment only. Appointments are available 8 a.m.-3:45 p.m., Monday and Friday, and 8 a.m.-2:15 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, by calling 210-458-4142 (Main Campus) and 210-458-2930 (Downtown Campus).
In the effort to further accommodate breastfeeding mothers on campus, Student Health Services also announces the creation of a new resource Web page that lists available room options at the Main and Downtown campuses that can be used for lactation purposes.
