Please read the following information carefully. Your continued use of MyChart will indicate your agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth below. If you do not agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, promptly exit MyChart.
Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. Health Care Providers will use your confidential medical information in order to provide you health care services. Health Care Providers will, at all times, maintain the privacy of your confidential medical information available within MyChart and will not disclose such medical information about you unless you authorize the disclosure of your information or the disclosure of the information is permitted by law. Please review Health Care Providers Notice of Privacy Practices for a thorough description of how we gather, use and protect your confidential medical information. All messages sent and received within MyChart that contain medical information are subject to state and federal laws governing the security and confidentiality of medical records.
II. MyChart Features
A. Electronic Messaging
MyChart should never be used for urgent matters. The anticipated turnaround time for response to electronic messages is two business days. If you believe you are experiencing an urgent or life threatening health condition, please call your physician’s office, go to an emergency room of a local hospital or dial 911.
If your provider is out of the office or unavailable, messages sent via MyChart may be routed to other authorized caregivers within Health Care Providers in order to facilitate a timely response to your request.
Health Care Providers may send you messages via MyChart. It is your responsibility to monitor these messages and respond in an appropriate manner.
B. Secure Communications
All communications between you and Health Care Providers using MyChart occur over a secure connection. You are required to provide Health Care Providers a valid e-mail address and it is your responsibility to keep this address updated if you change your e-mail account. You will receive Internet e-mail messages notifying you that new information is available in your MyChart account. Although these e-mail messages will not contain any confidential medical information, the notification that new information is available by accessing MyChart may be information that you would not want others to know. Please take this into account when providing an e-mail address or using MyChart. All of the confidential medical information available to you in MyChart is protected and securely maintained by Health Care Providers.
C. Activation Code
When you initially enroll in MyChart , you will be provided with an activation code. The activation code you receive will give you the opportunity to create a personal login name (called MyChart ID) and a password. Once this activation code has been used it will no longer be valid. It is extremely important that you keep your login name and password completely confidential. Anyone with access to your login name and password will be able to access your confidential medical information. That person will also be able to read your messages and send new messages as if that person were you. It is your responsibility to prevent disclosure of your login and password, and to change your password if you feel that its security has been compromised. You may change your password at any time.
At this time, Health Care Providers anticipates that the MyChart web portal will provide the following services:
* Ability to review, request or cancel your appointments
* Ability to view selected portions of your medical record such as allergies, medications, histories, problem list and recent visit information
* Ability to receive selected lab results
* Ability to communicate with your health care provider via secure messaging regarding non-urgent health concerns
* Ability to request prescription renewals
* Ability to link to other sites

If you have an emergency, or think you need to speak to someone urgently, please do not use the e-mail communication options provided to you by MyChart. Neither MyChart nor any other application available through this Site is a substitute for appropriate and timely contact or consultation with your physician.

IV. Termination of Access
Health Care Providers may restrict or terminate access to MyChart at any time. If access is restricted for planned maintenance of the MyChart system, reasonable efforts will be made to communicate downtime to users in advance.
