Getting Started with MyChart
Your access to MyChart allows for:
- Seeing your health information in one place.
Find your medication list, test results, upcoming appointments, preventative care information, allergies, immunizations, past admissions, insurance coverage and more – all in one secure place.
- As an outpatient, connect with your care team – no matter where you are.
From your MyChart inbox, send a message to a member of your healthcare team and receive answers to non-urgent medical questions, as well as responses to your questions and requests about prescriptions and refills, test results, medical provider visits and referrals to other providers.
- As an inpatient, use MyChart to participate in your care.
Inpatients should talk with your care team directly and use MyChart to access portions of your medical record, including appointments, results, letters, and some notes that allow you to participate actively in your care.
- Staying informed about your health.
MyChart helps serve as the control center for managing your health in a streamlined format. In it, you can view your to-do list, health reminders and proxy access (for parent, guardian, or other caregiver access if applicable) and access Medline Plus, a search engine for health topics.
- COVID-19 vaccine status and test results.
In collaboration with the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI), you can access a verifiable copy of your COVID-19 vaccination and testing records. Simply generate a QR code from MyChart to a health app on your smartphone or download your vaccination status and test results to a PDF file. You can use that QR code to be scanned by certified vendors who require proof of vaccination or negative test results. Or you can choose to print your QR codes to present a paper copy. Learn more details about this feature.
