What is MyChart?

MyChart is a free, secure online tool that gives patients easy access to their health information, any time, from anywhere. Patients can view test results and other clinical records, enter personal health information, share their records and securely message their physician or healthcare professional.

What information will I see in MyChart?

MyChart allows you to:

  • View your medical information online, including lab results, medication lists, pathology reports and more
  • Share your records with friends, family and health care providers who you delegate access
  • Input and manage information in your personal health record, such as medications, allergies, blood pressure and weight. This information can be viewed by health care providers who you allow access to your MyChart
  • Securely message with those who you have given access to your MyChart account

How long before I see the results?

Some results are subject to a delay to provide doctors and health care professionals with enough time to meet with you to review sensitive test results. Most records will be made available to you after they are available to your clinicians:

Allergies 0 Blood bank 0
Care plans 0 Medication 0
Labs 11 Genetics 35

How secure is health information in MyChart?
