The MypatientChart website is a convenient and secure way to access your health information. It allows you to set up your personal password and access certain aspects of your health record, including appointment records, lab results, and test results. However, the site is not a substitute for your personal healthcare provider. In addition, you should never rely on the MyChart website for any urgent health concerns.

Limitations of access
MyChart is a web-based medical record service. It is intended to give patients and their families easy access to their health information. It also allows patients to designate proxies for care. Information on MyChart may come from a variety of sources, including inpatient, outpatient, clinic, and laboratory data. It may also include information from independent, non-affiliated health care providers.
While MyChart may offer links to other websites and resources, these links are for informational purposes only. The information on these sites is not endorsed by the BJC or WUSM, and should not be relied upon for diagnosis or treatment. Similarly, the privacy policies of these websites may differ from BJC’s.
Proxy access for adults MypatientChart
Proxy access for adults on Mypatientchart is a feature on the website that allows you to grant someone else access to your health information. It is intended to make life easier for caregivers or couples who need to share important health information. It allows a third party to view your health information, make appointments, and send messages on your behalf.
Adults can sign up for proxy access for their chart when they reach the age of 13. For a child, a legal guardian or approved caregiver can sign up. A patient can grant proxy access to someone else by going to Menu>Share My Record>Friends and Family.
Limitations on access to test results
As a patient, you can access a variety of medical records, including test results, within MyChart. However, it is important to note that not all health care providers participate in the MyChart program. If you need to contact a provider that is not a participant, you should contact them in an alternative manner.
While you can access test results via MyChart, it is important to remember that your privacy is at risk. The website does not copy your entire medical record, and any information you provide may become part of your permanent record. Additionally, this site is only available to people who are 13 years old or older. Minors should provide a different e-mail address and obtain parental consent before allowing a proxy to view their information.
To access test results through MyChart, patients must be at least 13 years of age. They must sign a Release of Information form and create an account. Parents can also have a proxy account for their minor children. This way, they can ask questions about their child’s care, view lab reports, and schedule appointments.
Limitations on access to advance care planning documents
Advance care planning is an interactive process that assists individuals with limited capacity with their health care decisions. The plan names a health care proxy who will make decisions on their behalf in the event of a medical crisis. The process has several approaches, including detailed elicitation of treatment preferences, exploration of values, and assistance in identifying a healthcare proxy.
One of the major challenges in providing optimal end-of-life care is the fragmentation of the health care system. Patients frequently change their venue of care when they are nearing the end of their lives. This fragmentation makes it difficult for patients to obtain the services they need as they decline. This results in less-than-optimal care. Developing a detailed advance care plan is a key step in ensuring that end-of-life care is appropriate.
