Conditions of Use for MyChart

MyChart Not to Be Used for a Medical Emergency

If you have a medical emergency, you should immediately go to your nearest emergency room or dial 911 and you should not attempt to communicate with your provider through MyChart, as there may be a delay of several days or more before your provider can respond to your concern. There is no guarantee any specific response times to inquiries submitted through MyChart.

What This Site Offers

This online site called MyChart ("MyChart") is a service of the University of Utah Health ("U of U Health") and is designed to offer health, medical and insurance information to registered users. In addition to providing MyChart to U of U Health's own patients and members, U of U Health also provides MyChart as a contracted service to independent, third-party health care facilities and providers ("Independent Provider").

Independent Providers utilizing this MyChart service include Carson Tahoe Health, Fourth Street Clinic, and Sublette County Rural Health.

If you are accessing MyChart as a patient or member of an Independent Provider, U of U Health is not responsible, and does not assume any liability, for any actions or omissions, including those related to treatment, of the Independent Provider. U of U Health is not responsible for the accuracy and/or completeness of any information entered into MyChart by your Independent Provider. As a result, all information provided to you through MyChart that is generated by an Independent Provider is provided AS IS. All patients and members who use MyChart are subject to these requirements which are referred to as the "Conditions of Use." When the term "you" is used, it refers to the person who is authorized to access the patient's medical information. In most cases this will be only the patient himself or herself, but adults will often have access to medical information for a minor child, and in some cases adults may have access to a MyChart account for another adult due to disability or incapacity. The term "your Health Care Provider" refers to your treating provider, which may be U of U Health and/or your Independent Provider, as applicable.

At this time we foresee that MyChart will primarily be useful for the following types of activities:

  • Making, reviewing, or cancelling appointments
  • Viewing selected portions of your medical record such as allergies, medications, histories, problem list, and recent visit information
  • Receiving certain lab results
  • Communicating with your Health Care Provider via secure messaging regarding health concerns
  • Requesting prescription refills and prescription renewals
  • Manage how we contact you by updating your Communication Preferences.
  • Finding links to other sites that will provide health information

Users who are also University of Utah Health Plan members will have the ability to:

  • View benefit information and check out-of-pocket benefits
  • Check claim status and print EOBs
  • Check eligibility
  • Print temporary wallets cards
  • Grant access control to members on your plan, if you so choose

Your Health Care Provider will endeavor to provide a timely response to electronic inquiries. In some cases, your Health Care Provider's clinic staff who need to respond may not be immediately available so you should allow at least three (3) business days for a response. Please note that there is no guarantee of any specific response times to inquiries submitted through MyChart.

Computer Security

You understand that although U of U Health has taken reasonable steps and has employed industry-standard practices and technology to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of any personally identifiable information available through MyChart, even the most secure system can be violated and that U of U Health cannot guarantee security.

You understand that MyChart will allow you to communicate directly with your Health Care Provider regarding your medical care. You agree that you will only use MyChart to convey online messages of a non-urgent nature. You will only convey online messages that are suitable for communication in this medium. Some situations will be best handled either through a telephone conversation or an in-person visit.

You also agree to communicate only through MyChart for your own medical condition or for the medical condition of someone for whom you are authorized to make medical decisions. You agree that asking for advice on behalf of another person for whom you are not authorized to make medical decisions could potentially be harmful and is a violation of these Conditions of Use.

Also, your Health Care Provider can only respond to the information you have provided. If the information you provide via MyChart is incomplete or inaccurate, it will not be possible for your Health Care Provider to provide a complete or accurate response. You are responsible for any incomplete or inaccurate communications resulting from your submission of incomplete or inaccurate information to your Health Care Provider or MyChart.

Finally, you understand that University of Utah Health may contact you via MyChart ticklers, telephone calls, SMS and or Email for reasons related to your health care. Should you wish to change your communication preferences, you can do so at your convenience through Communication Preferences in MyChart. This is found under Account Settings in the "Your Menu" option.

No Guarantee of Continuous Access to MyChart

U of U Health and Independent Providers cannot guarantee that use of MyChart will be free of interruptions. U of U Health regularly engages in routine maintenance of its computer systems, which may lead to inaccessibility of MyChart. In addition, factors beyond the control of U of U Health and Independent Providers, such as power outages, may lead to inaccessibility. During these times if it is necessary to contact your Health Care Provider you should do so by telephone or by an in-person visit.

No Guarantee of Completeness of Medical Record

MyChart is designed for your convenience and enhances your access to certain parts of your medical record. However, neither U of U Health nor Independent Providers guarantee that MyChart contains your complete medical record. In fact, there are certain types of medical information that will never appear in MyChart. If you want a complete copy of your medical record, you should contact your Health Care Provider by telephone or in person. Never assume that your MyChart record is your complete medical record or insurance information.

Messages exchanged between you and your Health Care Provider through MyChart become part of your official medical record. This information is confidential but may typically be released with your consent or by legal requirement. You agree to use appropriate discretion when sending online messages, particularly if you do not want the information to appear in the official medical record. If you do not want something to appear in the official medical record, do not submit it through MyChart.

Authorized Access by Your Health Care Provider

Any authorized person at your Health Care Provider who would otherwise be authorized to access your medical records may be authorized to view information submitted through your MyChart account.

Your Responsibility to Review MyChart Messages in a Timely Manner

Messages sent to you via MyChart might contain information that is important to your health and medical care. It is your responsibility to monitor these messages in a timely manner. You are liable for any loss, injury or claims of any kind resulting from messages that you fail to read in a timely manner.

As a user of MyChart you should be aware that you will be notified via e-mail when there is new medical information to be viewed on MyChart. This means that any person with access to your e-mail will be able to see this notification. This could include your family members, employer or anyone else who can access your e-mail account. Although no private medical information will be sent, the notification that new medical information is available may be information that you would not want others to know. You should take this into account when providing an e-mail address or using MyChart.

Proxy Access for Minors

All users of MyChart must be at least 18 years of age. Minors aged 12-17 may also use MyChart if the account is requested by the minor's parent or legal guardian. By using MyChart, you are representing that you are 18 years of age or older and possess the mental capacity to understand and agree to these Conditions of Use or in the case of a minor aged 12-17 a parent or legal guardian is representing that they are 18 years of age or older and possess the mental capacity to understand and agree to these Conditions of Use. Parents or guardians of minor children (age 0-17) may request proxy access to the minor child's account by contacting the Health Information Management department where the minor is seen and requesting such access. Please be advised that information available through proxy access may vary in some respects from information MyChart makes available directly to a patient. Additionally, in compliance with applicable law, there may be circumstances in which MyChart does not make certain information available to a patient and/or a user with proxy access.

In order to have proxy access for a minor's account or for the account for an adult with a disability (for example if you are the legal guardian for an adult), you must produce legal documentation to verify your legal standing and submit a copy to U of U Health through the proxy's Health Care Provider. Such access will only be granted to parties with parental rights or legal guardianship over the MyChart account holder and only to the extent that the party requesting proxy access can demonstrate the legal right to access the account holder's medical information. A MyChart account will be activated for both the proxy and the account holder. If the proxy's legal relationship with the account holder changes (for example if you are a legal guardian through foster care of a minor child but that child is legally adopted by someone else and your legal guardianship ceases), you must immediately notify the proxy's Health Care Provider.

Changes to the Conditions of Use

U of U Health may modify or change these Conditions of Use at any time. Such modifications or changes become effective immediately when they are posted to MyChart. You agree to review these Conditions of Use frequently so that you will be familiar with them. You further agree that each time you use MyChart you are, by such use, consenting to the Conditions of Use applicable at that time.

Use of Third-Party Services

You may choose to use other services provided by third parties in conjunction with your use of MyChart. Such services may include, but are not limited to, translation services, location services, and other third-party offerings. Any links to such services are provided for your convenience only. Neither Epic, U of U Health, or Independent Providers have control over the content of these services, and neither Epic, U of U Health, nor Independent Providers accept any responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. Such services may require you to submit your information to a third party, which may result in a copy of your information being used and/or stored by a third party. If you decide to access any such services in conjunction with your use of MyChart, you do so entirely at your own risk and subject to the terms and conditions of use for such services. Your MyChart account may potentially contain substance use disorder records subject to 42 CFR Part 2 and such decision to utilize a third party application would result in release of all MyChart records including any substance use disorder records.

MyChart Spanish

Please note that Spanish translations within MyChart may be provided with the assistance of computer translation software or by individuals who are not officially certified as Spanish translators. Such translations are offered for the convenience of the patient and patient's family, however, the translations may be imperfect or may contain ambiguities tied to use of slang, use of idiomatic expressions, or other uses of language that cannot be translated literally.
