What Is the Allina MyChart?

Allina MyChart is an online health resource that lets users keep track of appointments and payments through the Allina Health company. As of 2015, MyChart includes a messaging system for non-emergency questions, follow-up care instructions for procedures and appointment reminders, according to Allina Health.

MyChart members can set up, cancel or reschedule their medical appointments online. Patients are sent notifications to remind them of any upcoming appointments. If patients use an Allina pharmacy, they can refill their prescriptions through the MyChart service.

The service also provides e-visits and online diagnoses, removing the need for some users to visit a clinic. Online bill pay, prescription refills and lab test results reduce the amount of travel needed, as the service allows users to do much of the work through the Internet. The service is available on most mobile devices, including Android and iOS systems, notes the Allina Health website.
