MyChart Medical Record Access is an Internet application that enables a patient to have secure web-based access to portions of their electronic medical record, and allows a secure, convenient communications channel with their health care provider for non-urgent messages. Use of this service is optional. When you initially enroll in MyChart, you will be provided with an access code. The access code you receive will give you the opportunity to create a personal login name (called "MyChart ID") and a password. Once this access code has been used it will no longer be valid and you will subsequently need to use your personal login and password for future access to the system. It is extremely important that you keep your login name and password completely confidential. Your login name and password are key to protecting the confidentiality of your information. It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. It is only known by you and can be changed online at any time only by you. Your password is not known by anyone at your health care provider's office.
You can voluntarily disenroll from your use of MyChart Medical Record Access at any time by completing the appropriate online request to disenroll or by calling your physician's office.
