Have a sore throat? A fever? Maybe you woke up with congestion? If you’re a UI Health Care employee experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, there’s now an additional way to schedule a COVID-19 test.
Employees can now use the MyChart self-checker to schedule a COVID-19 test. This is similar to how UI Health Care patients schedule a test, but employees will follow a separate set of questions to find testing options and locations.
You’ll need to create a MyChart account—if you don’t already have one—to use this tool. Read more about signing up for a free MyChart account.
Once in MyChart, you’ll be prompted to select your reason for using the self-checker.
After selecting “Experiencing symptoms,” you’ll see the available testing locations. Select the testing site most appropriate for your work location and symptoms.
Do I have to schedule a COVID-19 test through MyChart?
No, employees can still call the University Employee Health Clinic (UEHC) at 319-356-3631, option 3. The MyChart self-checker provides another way for employees to schedule a test and helps alleviate the call volume to the UEHC.
What else can the MyChart symptom checker be used for?
Employees can also use the MyChart self-checker if they:
- Have concerns or questions about the COVID-19 vaccine
- Tested positive for COVID-19
- Have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19
- Need general advice related to COVID-19
When using the MyChart self-checker, employees should select the relevant option (see image above) to receive further guidance.
