Is there a fee to use MyChart?

MyChart is a free service offered to our patients.

How do I sign up?

Patients will be issued a MyChart activation code during their Franciscan Physician office visit or upon discharge from a Franciscan Alliance hospital. This code will enable you to login and create your own user ID and password. If you have lost your activation code or it has expired, you may request a new code from your Franciscan Physician Network office.

Why am I getting Invalid Social Security Number error during enrollment process?

First verify that you have entered in the last 4 digits of your social security number correctly. If it was entered correctly, you may have missing or incorrect information listed in our system. Contact the Franciscan Alliance facility that issued the activation code to validate or correct the information.

When can I see my test results in MyChart?

Most lab results ordered during your visit will be automatically released after 24 hours. Providers may not have reviewed the results that are automatically released to MyChart. Only lab tests ordered after the MyChart account activation will be available in MyChart for viewing.

Why are certain test results not shared electronically via MyChart?

Your Franciscan Alliance provider is able to determine which types of test results are released through MyChart. Further, tests of a very sensitive nature are not released in MyChart without a conversation first with your physician.

If some of my health information on MyChart is not correct, what should I do?

Your MyChart information comes directly from your electronic medical record. Contact the Franciscan Alliance facility that delivered inaccurate information.

Return to Top

If I send a message to my doctor or nurse, when can I expect a reply?

You will generally receive an answer within one to three business days during normal office hours. MyChart should not be used for urgent situations. Please call your physician if the situation requires immediate attention, or dial 911 if it is an emergency.

Can I view a family member's health record in MyChart?

Yes. This is called proxy access and allows a parent (or guardian) to log into their personal MyChart account, and then connect to information regarding their family member. Enrollment for proxy access is available at your Franciscan Physician network physicianís office or through a Franciscan Alliance hospital HIM department. During your next physician office visit, complete a MyChart Proxy Consent Form to request access to this convenient service.

For adults, such as your spouse, each adult must sign and submit a Release of Information request and establish his or her own MyChart account.

If a patient above the age of 12 wishes to grant MyChart proxy access to another individual, they will first establish his or her own MyChart account. Then they will complete a MyChart Release of Information Consent form to grant access to the designated proxy. Your Franciscan Physician Network physicianís office or a Franciscan Alliance hospital HIM department can assist you with this.

Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my MyChart account?

Yes, if you are signed up as a proxy for that family member. Click on Family Records and select the family member. You can then send the question to the appropriate provider. It is very important to access your family memberís account because any communication with your provider from your account will be placed in your health record. This information would not appear in the correct health record and could potentially jeopardize medical care.

Can my spouse and I share one MyChart account?

No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must sign and submit a Release of Information request and establish their own MyChart account.

Return to Top

What if I want to revoke access to my MyChart account Iíve given to a family member?

To revoke access to your MyChart, log into MyChart and from the left menu, go to the My Familyís Records section and select Family Access Settings. Finally, select the name of the proxy you no longer want to have access and click the revoke access button.

I forgot my password. What should I do?

Click the "Forgot password" link on the sign-in page to reset your password online.

Can you send me a new access code as I have lost it, let it expire or did not receive it?

You can request a new access code by contacting your Franciscan Physician Network office.

Where can I update my personal information (e.g., home address, e-mail or change my password)?

To update personal information such as e-mail or password, log into MyChart and from the left menu, go to the Preferences section and select the appropriate option.

How is MyChart secure?

We take great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. Access to information is controlled through secure access codes, personal ID's, and passwords. Each person controls their password, and the account cannot be accessed without that password. Further, MyChart uses the latest 1024-bit RSA encryption technology with no caching to automatically encrypt your session with MyChart. Unlike conventional e-mail, all MyChart messaging is done while you are securely logged on to our website.

What is your Privacy Policy?

Our privacy policy can be accessed here.

I was logged out of MyChart, what happened?

We aim to protect your privacy and security of your information. While logged into MyChart, if your keyboard remains idle for 10 minutes or more, you will be automatically logged out of MyChart. We recommend that you log out of your MyChart session if you need to leave your computer for even a short period of time.

What do I need to use MyChart?

You need access to a computer connected to the Internet and an up-to-date browser (such as Internet Explorer version 7 or above 8).

Return to Top

My access code does not work, what should I do?

For your security, your access code expires after 60 days and is no longer valid after the first time you use it. If you still have problems, you will need to return to your Franciscan Physician Network physician's office to obtain a new activation code.

Return to Top

Is my access code my user ID?

No, your access code is not your MyChart ID or password. You will use this code only once to log into MyChart for the first time. (The code will expire after you have used it or after 60 days). When you log into MyChart the first time, you will then be asked to create your own unique MyChart ID and password.
