UHS to use
electronic
records
Director says
transition to new
system may be rocky
By JACOB AXELRAD
Editor in Chief
Beginning June 13, Univer-
sity Health Services will convert
health records to an electronic
system - a change that UHS
Director Robert Winfield says
coincides with the recent elimina-
tion of walk-in appointments.
On May 13, UHS made the
switch to appointment-only after
assessing data from surveys that
examined patient satisfaction
with health services.
In fall 2011, 88 percent of the
1,591 patients surveyed said they
were satisfied with the overall
quality of care and customer ser-
vice at UHS, which decreased
from the 91 percent satisfaction
rate in fall 2010, according to UHS
satisfaction survey data.
The same survey expressed a
72-percent satisfaction rate with
the overall waiting experience in
fall 2011, as opposed to 82 percent
in winter of that same year.
On average, between winter and
fall of 2011, while patient satisfac-
tion remained at 86 percent for
appointment services, satisfaction
dropped from 80 to 62 percent for
walk-in services.
In an interview with The Michi-
gan Daily, Winfield said this is well

Rally participants gather on the Diag, braving the heat to voice opposition to federal mandate.
Religiously-fueled rally on
D ag protests mandate

Crowd of about 500
shows opposition
to contraceptive
reform
By GIACOMO BOLOGNA and
ADAM RUBENFIRE
ManagingEditor and DailyNews
Editor
American flags, bright balloons
and nuns filled the Diag on Friday,
withstanding the summer heat
to protest a mandate given by the
U.S. Department of Health and

Human Services.
The mandate would require
employers who provide health
care coverage to also include con-
traception and sterilization.
About 500 people, including
families, religious leaders and
students attended the two-hour
rally, many carryingasigns.
NickThomm, the co-founderof
Stop HHS - a project petitioning
against the mandate, which co-
sponsored the event - spoke to
the crowd at the event.
In an interview with The
Michigan Daily after the event,
Thomm said the rally was per-

tinent to all Americans who do
not want their freedoms to be
impinged upon.
"This isn't a Catholic issue, this
isn't a Christian issue," Thomm
said. "One of the points I made
in my talk is that when especially
First Amendment liberties are
going down a slippery slope, we
don't know what's going to be
next."
He added that this was the sec-
ond rally held in Ann Arbor this
year, the first of which was held at
the Ann Arbor Federal Building.
