Your MyChart information comes directly from your electronic medical record at your provider's office. For some information (such as allergies) you may review and mark for deletion any allergies that do not apply and add any allergies that are not listed. You may also ask your provider through MyChart Medical Advice Messaging or during a visit to correct any inaccurate information, indicating what is inaccurate and why you believe it to be incorrect. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your electronic medical record each visit.Return to Top
You will generally receive an answer within three (3) business days. Please note that MyChart should not be used for urgent situations. Please contact your provider's office if the situation requires immediate attention or dial 911 if it is an emergency.Return to Top
Yes, you may print any information where a print icon is shown (usually at the top right of the screen), by clicking the icon and then clicking Print This Page.
You may also download information from MyChart in any of these ways:
1. You may download a summary of your health information from an option under the My Medical Record tab. Select Medical Tools > Download My Record and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. You may also download a summary of a past healthcare visit from an option under the Visits tab. Select Visit History > Visit Summaries and click the floppy disk icon next to the desired visit in the list of all past visits. Follow the on-screen instructions to download a record of your visit.
3. The summary of a past healthcare visit may also be downloaded from within the visit record. Select Visit History > Visit Summaries. Click the visit (in the Visit Description column) to see the Appointment Details, then click the folder icon to download the visit information.
4. You may also send your health information to a provider outside of your clinic (such as a specialist) if that provider has a special email address (a “Direct Address”) that has been made available through MyChart or has been given directly to you. A Direct Address is similar to an email address but is a secure way to send authenticated, encrypted health information directly to known, trusted recipients over the Internet. It is a way for you to send your personal health information from this electronic health record system to an outside provider who does not use this system. While your intended provider may not be available in the MyChart directory today, the number of specialists and other providers included in the directory is expected to grow over time.Return to Top
