What is MyChart?

MyChart offers patients personalized and secure on-line access to portions of their medical records. It enables you to securely use the Internet to help manage and receive information about your health. With MyChart, you can use the Internet to:


  • Request medical appointments
  • View your health summary from the MyChart electronic health record
  • View test results
  • Request prescription renewals
  • Access trusted health information resources
  • Communicate electronically and securely with your medical care team


Is there a fee to use MyChart?

No, MyChart is a free service to patients of enrolled physician practices.


How do I enroll in MyChart?

Patients who wish to participate will be issued a MyChart activation code during their clinic visit. This code will enable you to login and create your own user ID and password. If you were not issued an activation code, you may call your primary care clinic to get one or ask to sign up during your next office visit.

Who do I contact if I have further questions?

You may email MyChart Administration if your primary care practice staff cannot answer your questions.


YOUR MEDICAL RECORD

When can I see my test results in MyChart?

Your test results are released to your MyChart account after your physician has reviewed them. This is generally within 1 – 12 days.

Why are certain test results not shared electronically via MyChart?

Your provider is able to determine which types of test results are able to be accessed through MyChart. Further, tests of a very sensitive nature are not released to MyChart.

If some of my health information on MyChart is not correct, what should I do?

Your MyChart information comes directly from your electronic medical record at your doctor’s office. Ask your doctor to correct any inaccurate information at your next clinic visit. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your electronic medical record each visit.

If I send a message to my doctor or nurse, when can I expect a reply?

You will generally receive an answer within 1-3 business days. Please note that MyChart should not be used for urgent situations. Please contact your medical center if the situation requires immediate attention or dial 911 if it is an emergency.


MYCHART FOR MY FAMILY

Can I view a family member’s health record in MyChart?

Yes you can. This is called Proxy Access and allows a parent (or guardian) to log into their own personal MyChart account, and then connect to information regarding their family member. Complete a Proxy Consent Form at your physician’s office to request access to this convenient service.

Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my MyChart account?

MyChart offers direct access to your personal health record and communicating about another individual’s information while in your record would place that information in your health record, which would not be the correct health record and could potentially jeopardize medical care. For this reason, we discourage this avenue of communication.

Can my spouse and I share one MyChart account?

No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each individual must establish their own MyChart account.

AFTER I HAVE ENROLLED

I forgot my password. What should I do?

You may contact our Help Desk at 443-481-5202 to request a new, secure password. You may also click the “Forgot password” link on the sign-up page to reset your password online.

Can you send me a new access code as I have lost it, let it expire or did not receive it?

Contact us at MyChart Administration and after we verify your information, a new code will be sent via US Postal Service. Privacy issues prevent us from emailing a new access code to you.

Where can I update my personal information (e.g., home address, email or change my password)?

Log into MyChart and from the left menu, go to the Preferences section and select the appropriate option.



TECHNICAL QUESTIONS
