Patients who wish to participate will be issued a MyChart activation code during their clinic visit. This code will enable you to log in and create your own username and password. If you were not issued an activation code, fill out the request form on the Request Access to My Account
page. You will receive an activation code via email within 7 business days.
Your test results are released to your MyChart account after your physician has reviewed them. This is generally within 1-7 business days after your physician receives the final result.
Most test results such as labs, radiology and pathology will be released to MyChart within 7 business days of receipt by your provider as well as historical results since 2013. Due to the sensitive nature of some tests, those test results might not be viewable in MyChart. If you have questions related to result, please use the "Get Medical Advice" request to send a message to your provider and team.
Your MyChart information comes directly from your electronic medical record at your provider's office. Ask your provider to correct any inaccurate information at your next clinic visit. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your electronic medical record each visit.
You will generally receive an answer within 2-3 business days from your provider or their clinical staff. Please note that MyChart should not be used for urgent situations, dial 911 if it is an emergency. Please contact your provider via phone if the situation requires immediate attention.
Yes, you can. This is called Proxy access which allows access to a child or adult UCM patient’s record. We have two methods to sign up for proxy access. If you are requesting access to a child’s chart, you may fill out the proxy form using the Request Proxy Access to My Child’s Account
form or inquire at your child’s next visit. To allow access to your account or request access to another adult’s MyChart account, please inquire about the paper form for Adult Proxy Access at your next visit. Adult to Adult MyChart access does require a signature from BOTH the patient and proxy.
MyChart offers direct access to your personal health record and communicating about another individual's information would be placed in your health record. This information would not appear in the correct health record and could potentially jeopardize medical care.
No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must establish their own MyChart account.
In accordance with UChicago Medicine policy, proxy access converts to a limited version on the child's 12th birthday and proxy access terminates on the child's 18th birthday.
Birth to 12 Years of Age: Parents and legal guardians are provided with full access to their child's MyChart account. A week before your child's 12th birthday, you will receive an email alerting you that your access will be transitioned to a limited proxy access the day before your child's birthday.
12 to 17 Years of Age: Parents and legal guardians are provided with limited access to their child's MyChart account. A week before the child's 18th birthday, you will receive an email alerting you that access will be terminated the day before your child's birthday.
