Using Allina Health MyChart online makes managing your health easy

MINNEAPOLS 10/14/2013

More than 356,000 Allina Health patients use MyChart to manage their Allina Health care online, but many more could be taking advantage of this free tool to improve their health.

MyChart is a secure, online health management tool that connects Allina Health hospital and clinic patients to their personalized health information. It's completely secure, making sure your health information stays a private matter between you and your care providers. And your information is available 24/7.

Understanding and remembering all the information you need to know after being discharged from a hospital after surgery, delivery or illness can be confusing; and can impact whether or not you have to return to the hospital for additional care. MyChart provides that needed online access once you get home to view the reason for your hospital visit, diet, activity, wound- and self-care instructions, equipment needed, signs and symptoms that indicate a worsening in your condition and whom to call, and more. In addition, MyChart provides similar information for clinic patients.

For Allina Health hospital patients, MyChart allows you to:

  • review your record of medications, immunizations and allergies, and your medical history
  • review after-visit summaries from your hospital care team (discharge instructions)
  • pay hospital bills
  • request refills for your prescription medications from an Allina Health Pharmacy
  • read about health education topics

For Allina Health clinic patients, MyChart makes it easy to:

  • email a question to your clinic or care team
  • get an online diagnosis with an eVisit
  • request a prescription refill from an Allina Health Pharmacy
  • schedule and cancel clinic appointments
  • receive reminders of upcoming appointments
  • receive reminders about preventive health services
  • receive results for most tests online
  • get clinic after-visit summaries
  • view and pay bills online, and more.

It's easy to open your free MyChart account, whether you want to access your health information on your home personal computer, your Android smartphone or tablet, or on your Apple iPhone®, iPod touch® or iPad®. Just go to allinahealth.org/mychart and follow the simple instructions.
