MyChart is a secure way for patients to access their medical records and other medical information available through certain health care systems, the University of Virginia Health System explains. There is no fee to use MyChart. The MyChart system provides a secure way for patients to communicate with doctors and view test results, the University of Arizona advises.
To sign up for MyChart through the University of Virginia, patients fill out the MyChart Account Request Form, and they receive an activation code, advises the University of Virginia Health System. The code and instructions allow patients to create a login ID and password. There is a number to call if they need any help. Patients may also receive an activation code directly, and patients should read the Terms and Conditions before signing and accepting them. Patients with access to MyChart can view their health information, renew prescriptions and see test results.
Patients who wish to participate in MyChart through the University of Arizona receive an activation code during their clinic visit, the university explains. The code allows users to log in and create a user name and password. Patients who did not receive a code or have an expired activation code should contact the university's Patient Services or request a new code at their next office visit.
