UW Medicine’s patient portals (like eCare) will merge into one new and improved patient portal called MyChart. Learn more.

Patient Portal

UW Medicine currently has three patient portals that will be merged into one patient portal — known as MyChart — on March 27. MyChart will serve as your patient portal no matter where you receive care.

Do I need to create a MyChart account?

  • If you already have an eCare account: You won’t need to do anything to switch to MyChart — eCare will automatically update to MyChart for you on March 27.
  • If you are currently using another patient portal, or if you are signing up for the first time: You should request an eCare account today. eCare will automatically upgrade to MyChart on March 27. The patient portals that will be retired on March 27 are: UW Medical Center – Northwest (MobileMD), Harborview Medical Center (Cerner) and UW Medical Center – Montlake (Cerner).

Want to know more? Learn about MyChart or call 855.520.5151.

Can I keep using my existing patient portal account?

  • If you already have an eCare account: Your eCare account will automatically upgrade to MyChart on March 27 and your login information will remain the same.
  • If you are currently using another patient portal: You can continue to use patient portals for UW Medical Center – Northwest (MobileMD), Harborview Medical Center (Cerner) and UW Medical Center – Montlake (Cerner) until March 26. On March 27, these patient portals will no longer be available. Request an eCare account today to establish a patient account that will automatically upgrade to MyChart on March 27.

Frequently asked questions about patient portals

UW Medicine eCare is a free, secure and easy way to access your health information and manage clinic appointments online.

You can use eCare to see health records from your clinic visits or hospital stays anywhere in the UW Medicine system. This includes Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center - Northwest, UW Medical Center - Montlake, Valley Medical Center, UW Neighborhood Clinics and other UW Medicine-affiliated clinics.

eCare allows you to view many types of personal health information in your medical records, including:

  • Current medications
  • Allergies
  • Immunizations (vaccines)
  • Test results
  • Clinic notes
  • Details of your previous clinic visits
  • Hospital discharge instructions
  • Questionnaires

Your personal health information is private and secure. You access it through an online account, which you set up. Only you can see your records unless you give another person permission to see them.

Patients of UW Medicine-affiliated clinics or hospitals and the parents, legal guardians or caretakers of minors or other persons.

To set up your eCare 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 eCare sign-in page (this page) any time. 

Parents or guardians of children under age 13 may sign up for eCare access to their children's online health records. The enrollment process may be completed in person. Birth or adoptive parents must present photo identification and sign a form acknowledging that they have a right to the child's health care information. If there’s no clear documentation in the record verifying you are the birth parent, adoptive parent, or that you are the child’s legally recognized caregiver, you will be asked to provide  documentation (such as a court order or medical power of attorney.

eCare access is not available for children between the ages of 13-17 except those that are deemed to be a mature minor by their healthcare professional ‘or’ if a healthcare professional determines that the minor patient has diminished capacity and eCare proxy access is in the patient’s best interest. At 18 patients can sign up for their own eCare accounts.

Select from the four options above based on where you received your care and whether it was a clinic visit or hospital stay. In some cases, lab work or diagnostic procedures may be included in a hospital-stay record, even if you did not stay in the hospital overnight. If you are unsure where to sign in to eCare, please check with clinic staff or the hospital’s medical records department.

Emergency room patients: Currently, only patients who are admitted to the hospital are able to register for eCare.

These software programs may have different names like Cerner or MyChart, but they are all accessed within and part of eCare. Several hospitals and clinics within the UW Medicine health system use different software programs to allow you to manage appointments and access medical records online. Therefore, you may need to create a separate eCare account to view records from clinic visits that’s different from the one you would use to view hospital stays.

While we encourage patients to use eCare to manage their appointments, request prescription refills, view medical records and more, eCare is not a requirement for receiving medical services at any UW Medicine clinic or facility.

eCheck-In is available 2 days before your appointment.

You can now begin your appointment check-in at home to save time — and touchpoints — at the clinic.

On your home screen in eCare, click on the blue "eCheck-In" box next to your upcoming appointment
alert. You'll be walked through a series of prompts to provide the following information:

  • Confirm your contact information
  • Update or confirm your insurance information
  • e-sign any required forms
  • Complete any pre-visit screening questionnaires (such as a COVID-19 screening)
