The Cleveland Clinic MyChart website lets patients view test results, message their health care providers, analyze progress notes and download their health summary records. It also lets them peruse a list of recommended immunizations in relation to various factors, including age, medical history and gender.
As long as the patients have seen their health care providers within a period of 15 months prior to contacting them, they are guaranteed to receive a response within three business days to any messages sent through MyChart regarding medical issues that aren’t urgent. MyChart also allows patients to analyze the open schedules of their health care providers and arrange appointments online.
To use the full functionality of MyChart, a patient needs to have access to a computer with an Internet connection and an active email account. A patient can create a MyChart account by contacting his service representative at the Cleveland Clinic and asking for a one-time activation code. Alternatively, he can sign up for the account through the official Cleveland Clinic MyChart website by providing his personal information and gaining an activation code once the verification process is complete. MyChart users can access the service on their mobile phones by downloading the MyChart mobile application and selecting the Cleveland Clinic as their health care provider.
