Frequently asked questions
Enrollment and access
To set up your MyChart account, you will need an email address. Your email address will be secure and UW Medicine will not use it for any other purpose.
If you are at a clinic visit, clinic staff will give you instructions in person on how to create your account and log on to view your records. If you have stayed in the hospital, you will receive set-up instructions from hospital staff by email.
If you are a parent, legal guardian or caregiver, you may get permission to see medical records for a minor or other person in your care.
After you create your account, visit the MyChart sign-in page https://mychart.uwmedicine.org/prod01/Authentication/Login any time.
While we encourage patients to use MyChart to manage their appointments, request prescription refills, view medical records and more, MyChart is not a requirement for receiving medical services at any UW Medicine clinic or facility.
Current eCare users
If you are a current eCare user, you will still have access to all your information you're used to viewing. When MyChart goes live, you'll be able to your hospital admissions and emergency department visits as well as billing and payment details. See all of the new features in the chart above.
Current UW Medicine patients without an eCare account
If you have a UW Medicine Cerner Health account through UW Medical Center – Montlake or Harborview Medical Center, you won't be able to access your prior medical records with MyChart. You'll have to submit a release of information to request your prior records. Any new appointments, hospital visits or emergency department visits will be available through MyChart once it goes live.
If you’d like to see medical information from prior visits that is not visible in MyChart, you will need to fill out a release of information to request those records. You can fill out a release of information from within MyChart.
There is a mobile app for iOS and Android phones that allows you to view your outpatient medical records. You can also access all your online medical records on your smartphone via web browser without an app through the webpage https://mychart.uwmedicine.org/prod01/Authentication/Login.
New billing features
When MyChart goes live, you will be able to see and pay all of your UW Medicine bills on MyChart, including balances from before the go-live. You access your bills the same way you do your medical information — using your MyChart login. Simply log in using your username and password or sign up for a new account. You will have access to the billing information for which you are financially responsible without any additional set-up required.
You will be able to see all historical information for any of your outstanding accounts, regardless of where you were seen. Please note that certain services (such as laboratory services, Airlift Northwest and Valley Medical Center) will still be accessed through separate portals.
Most statement data, including historical charge details will be accessible through your MyChart account.
To access your physician billing, Harborview statements for dates of service prior to MyChart going live, you will need to access the existing Harborview physician portal. Online payment for these balances will be through your MyChart account, or through MyChart's "pay as guest" feature. Services at Harborview after MyChart goes live will be accessible through your MyChart account.
Billing access is controlled separately from clinical details. Access to billing-related details, including statements, ability to pay, and billing letter communications will only be available to the person who is financially responsible (known as the guarantor).
Proxies will not have access to billing information. If you are responsible for more than just your own bill, you will see all of your accounts as separate tiles on the billing home page within MyChart.
For example, if you are a patient, but also have 2 children at UW Medicine that you are financially responsible for (the guarantor), you will see an entry for your own bill, and 2 separate entries for each child.
