New Electronic Health Record

The student Health Center has recently implemented an electronic health record called Medicat. Students can now complete the required Health History Form and enter the required vaccine dates electronically via the Patient Portal: https://carrollu.medicatconnect.com/. To complete your required Health History Form, log into the Patient Portal using your Carroll University user name and password. In the near future, students will have access to my chart and be able to self schedule appointments via the portal.  Students will be able to use their student ID and complete the self check in process via laptops when they come for a visit to the Student Health Center. Please be patient with the Student Health Center staff as we transition to the electronic health record as visits may take more time than usual until our staff adjusts to the new system. 

Traveling Abroad?

 
The Health Center NPs can help you prepare to study abroad or head off on your next NCEP trip. We can sign the required Medical Health Statement form, review and administer vaccines recommended for travel, and CDC recommendations for your travel destination. We also can write prescriptions for anti-malaria medication, and recommend medication to treat traveler's diarrhea. There is a $20 charge for a travel consult, which is billed to your student account or can be paid using Carroll Cash. Vaccine prices vary, but the Health Center bills the cost of the vaccine plus a $10 administration fee (see Health Center Fees under handouts section on the right of this page). The Health Center staff will give you a receipt to submit to your insurance if covered through a private insurance plan. If you have the WPS student insurance plan offered through the University, travel vaccines and consults are 100% covered if administered by the Student Health Center.
