The Christ Hospital MyChart includes electronic medical records of its members. It offers patients personalized online access to manage and receive information sent by their respective health care service. Users also get access to information from trusted health resources.
MyChart provides a secure online platform for patients to view medical test results, request appointments and prescription renewals, and communicate electronically with their health care team. The test results, after being verified by the physician, are sent to the MyChart account within one to 14 days. The service does not provide test results of a very sensitive nature.
The information on MyChart comes directly from the electronic medical record available with the doctor’s office. The medical records of patients are updated after each visit. The service also offers proxy access that allows a user to access health record of his family members. The reply to a message sent by the patient is generally answered within one to three business days. MyChart advises users not to use their service for urgent or emergency situations.
Patients can join this free service by using their MyChart activation code issued by their physician during the office visit. This code allows patients to log in and create their own user ID and password.
