I had my last visit at student health today and I have to say it was bittersweet. The WVU staff and administration has always been so supportive in helping students and providing us with whatever we need while away from home. When I sat down in the office today, the secretary informed me that WVU Healthcare is offering a new service known as MyWVUChart. It’s a convenient way for you to access your records, request an appointment, view test results, communicate electronically, and even refill prescriptions. This new system is a stress-free way to maintain all of your personal information without having to make a trip to the office. If you’ve ever been to student health, you know it’s always busy and takes weeks before they can fit you in their schedule. Moreover, your health is important to you around the clock, not just during office hours.
Although I ‘m graduating, it will still be beneficial to use the chart system because other offices will be able to view my medical history without much effort. I tend to be very organized with my schoolwork, yet misplace important medical documents so this amenity will keep everything in one place. If you’d like to start using the chart system, you need to activate an account and receive a temporary activation code. When you visit the site for the first time, you will be asked to confirm your date of birth and social security number before you can create a username and password. The best part is, you don’t have to be sitting at a computer to access all of your healthcare information because there is an app that you can download. I would recommend students take advantage of the chart because it’s free, easy, and secure way to stay on top of things.
