Moreover, be advised that the information you communicate through the MyChart service may not be incorporated into your permanent medical record.
If you use the MyChart service, you may receive messages, test results and other communications delivered via MyChart. Accordingly, your provider(s) will not send duplicate written reports of this information, unless you specifically request a written report.
Before signing up for the MyChart service, you should understand that the medical information included in MyChart may include medical information you consider very personal including, but not limited to, information about sexually transmitted and other communicable diseases, drug and alcohol abuse, HIV/AIDS, and mental health services.
You should also understand that your messages sent via MyChart may not be delivered directly to an individual practitioner (e.g., your physician) and may be routed to appropriate members of your provider’s staff for processing and response. Accordingly, you should not communicate via MyChart if you desire to communicate sensitive information directly with an individual practitioner.
