Is there a fee to use MyChart?
No. MyChart is a free service offered to Bryan Health patients.
If I have a MyChart account with another hospital, do I need one with Bryan Health?
Yes. To access your Bryan Health records, you need a Bryan Health MyChart account. The good news is you can link your MyChart accounts so that you only have to log in once, and you'll have access to your health records in all your MyChart accounts.
How do I sign up for MyChart?
You can sign up anytime, or we will provide information to you when you receive care at any Bryan Health location. Sign up is easy. Just answer a few questions and you’ll receive an activation code. Use your activation code to set up your username and password for your MyChart account.
My activation code does not work, what should I do?
For your security, your activation code will expire after 30 days and is no longer valid after the first time you use it. If your activation code is not working, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our MyChart Service Desk at 1-844-628-0303.
Can you send me a new MyChart activation code? I have lost it, let it expire or did not receive one.
Yes. Email us at email@example.com or call us at 1-844-628-0303. After we verify your information, a new code will be sent via email to the address we have on file for you.
When can I see my test results in MyChart?
In most cases, your test results will be available in your MyChart account at the same time your doctor's office receives them. This is usually within one to three days. There are some results that due to the sensitive nature of the test may not be placed in MyChart or may be delayed in being placed in MyChart.
Why are certain test results not shared in MyChart?
This may happen with genetic testing as your doctor may want to visit with you about the results and the release of the information. In these cases, some results may be delayed or not be placed in your MyChart account. Your doctor will visit with you about this.
If some of my health information on MyChart is not correct, what should I do?
The information you see in MyChart comes directly from your electronic health record at Bryan Health. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your electronic health record at each visit. If you see information that is not correct, you can send a secure message to our medical records department by logging into your MyChart account, clicking on the “Ask a Question” quick link located on the right hand side of the screen and clicking the “Customer Service Question” button. Enter a subject in the subject line of the message, select “Request Correction to Medical Record” from the drop down menu and type your message in the text box. Or tell your provider on your next visit.
If I send a message to my doctor or nurse through MyChart, when can I expect a reply?
You will generally receive an answer within one to three business days. Please do not use MyChart for urgent situations. If your situation requires immediate medical attention, go to the nearest emergency department or dial 911.
Can I view a family member's health record in MyChart?
Yes. Access to another person’s health record is called proxy access. Proxy access allows a parent (or legal guardian) to log into their personal MyChart account, and then connect to information about their family member. Before proxy access can be granted, a Proxy Consent Form will need to be completed, signed and returned to one of our facilities. Adult patients can also give permission for another adult to have proxy access to their health information; such as in the case of an adult child caring for their parent or a person who is the caregiver for their spouse. Learn more about proxy access and obtain consent forms.
How can I see my child’s health information?
For children 18 and under, the parent or legal guardian just needs to complete and sign a request for proxy access form. Your child’s information will then appear in the parent/legal guardian’s MyChart account.
If your child is 19 or older, the child will need to set up his/her own MyChart account and complete a proxy form to grant you access to view information in their account.
Children between the ages of 13 and 19 can have their own MyChart account. This requires a separate consent form to be signed by the parent/legal guardian. If you are interested in this option, please talk to your doctor’s office or the medical center MyChart team.
I used to see more of my child’s information when logging into my MyChart account. What happened?
When a child turns 13 years old, your proxy access to his/her information is automatically changed. This is to remain in compliance with Nebraska state law.
You can continue view items such as vitals (height, weight), immunizations, allergies, family history, etc. You can also communicate with the provider as the patient does to schedule appointments, request referrals, pay bills, update demographics, etc. You will no longer be able to view items such as: health issues, medications, test results, appointment summaries and prescription refill requests.
I no longer see my child’s information when I log into my MyChart account. What happened?
When your child turns 19, he/she is an adult under Nebraska law. This means your proxy access to his/her information automatically ends. This is to remain in compliance with state and federal laws. To regain access to your adult child's information, your adult child will need to complete a form granting this access (adult granting access to another adult form). If you are the legal guardian or personal representative of your child, there is a form you can complete to access the information (legal guardian or personal representative of an adult form).
Can I ask questions about a family member’s health from my MyChart account?
No. This is because MyChart offers direct access to your personal health record. If you communicate about another individual through your MyChart account, that information would then be placed into your own health record. This could potentially jeopardize the care you receive. If you would like to ask questions about a family member’s health through MyChart, you will need to submit a request for proxy access and ask the question through that family member’s MyChart account.
Can my spouse and I share one MyChart account?
No. Since the information in MyChart is directly tied to your electronic health record, each patient will need to establish his/her own MyChart account.
Can my child have their own MyChart account?
Yes. Children between the ages of 13 and 19 can have their own MyChart account. This requires a separate consent form to be signed by the parent/legal guardian. If you are interested in this option, please talk to your doctor’s office or the medical center MyChart team.
I forgot my password. What should I do?
From the MyChart sign in page, click the "Forgot password?" link. Then enter your MyChart Username, the last four digits of your Social Security Number, your date of birth and answer the security question to reset your password. If you are unable to change your password after following these steps, please contact our MyChart Service Desk at 1-844-628-0303 to request a new, secure password.
Where can I update my personal information in MyChart (e.g., home address, email address, phone number)?
Log into your MyChart account. Click on the “Health” icon at the top of the screen. Select “Demographics” from the drop down menu. Make necessary changes to your address, phone numbers, preferred phone number and email address. After completing all needed changes, click on the “Accept Changes” button to save your changes.
Where can I change my MyChart password?
Log into your MyChart account. Click on the “Settings” icon at the top of the screen. Select “Security Settings” from the drop down menu. Enter your current password, enter your new password and confirm your new password. Click the “Save Password” button to save your changes.
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 activation codes, personal usernames and passwords. Each person controls their own password, and the account cannot be accessed without that password. Unlike conventional email, MyChart messaging can only be done while you are securely logged into your MyChart account. No information crosses over the internet.
MyChart is owned and operated by MyChart and is fully compliant with federal and state laws pertaining to your privacy. Your name and email address will be treated with the same care and privacy given to your health records and will never be sold or leased by MyChart.
I was logged out of MyChart. What happened?
We aim to protect your privacy and the security of your information. If there is no activity for 15 minutes while you are logged in, you will be automatically logged out of MyChart. If you need to leave your computer for any reason, we recommend that you log out of your MyChart session.
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, Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
You can also download the MyChart app for easy access to your health information anywhere on your phone or tablet.
