The Office of Employee Benefits is excited to announce a new benefit for UT System Administration employees. Beginning on October 16, 2017, employees will have access to a telemedicine clinic located on the 19th floor of the UT System Building in Austin.
The Telemedicine Clinic is a 6-month pilot between Office of Employee Benefits, UT Medical Branch, and UT Austin’s School of Nursing. If successful, we are hoping to make this a long-term benefit.
HOURS | Open from 8 to 10 am each weekday.
PROVIDERS | Staffed by health care providers from The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) and assisted by nurses from The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing.
ENROLL | To be evaluated in the clinic, each employee must be enrolled in MyChart with UTMB prior to the clinic visit. Enrollment is free and can be completed by contacting the Office of Employee Benefits.
FREE | For a limited time, there will be NO COST for clinic visits.
CONNECT | Employees will be linked to the care provider via telemedicine equipment in the clinic, with the nursing staff available to assist with any necessary examination.
FIRST COME | Employees will be evaluated on a first come, first serve basis. When all available slots for the day are full, no additional appointments will be made for that day.
PRIMARY CARE | The clinic will focus on the treatment of minor primary care concerns, such as eye infections, ear aches, and colds. An employee may be issued a prescription or referred for further treatment at the conclusion of the appointment.
Questions? Please call Employee Benefits | (512) 499-4616.
