MyChart SRHS Terms and Conditions User Agreement

By agreeing to the following terms and conditions, I acknowledge that I am requesting access to view designated parts of my electronic health information and communicate with my SRHS* healthcare team by the use of the Internet.

  • I understand that MyChart is intended as a secure, online source of confidential, electronic medical information.
  • I understand that MyChart is NEVER to be used as a means of communication to SRHS healthcare providers for urgent or emergency matters. For all emergency matters that I believe might immediately affect my health or well-being, I will dial 911 without delay and/or go to the emergency department of a local hospital of my choice.
  • I understand that my SRHS healthcare team may send me messages through MyChart. The messages from MyChart may contain information about my health and medical care. It is my responsibility to monitor the messages that are sent to my MyChart Inbox. I understand and agree that SRHS will not be liable for any loss, injury or claims of any kind resulting from MyChart messages that I fail to read in a timely manner.
  • I understand that I must maintain a valid and working email address that may be used by SRHS to notify me of the presence of MyChart messages. I will update my email address on MyChart if my email address changes.

I understand that if I do not get a response within three (3) business days, I should contact my physician or healthcare team by telephone. I also understand that the response I receive is dependent on the information I provide to my SRHS healthcare team through MyChart.
  • I understand that messages MyChart messages sent by me may not be delivered to my individual physician and may be sent to appropriate staff members for processing and response. I understand, based on this limitation, that I should not communicate by MyChart if I want to communicate sensitive information directly with an individual practitioner.
  • I agree that it is my responsibility to select a confidential password, to maintain my password in a secure manner, and to change my password if I believe it may have been compromised in any way.

  • I understand that MyChart contains designated, limited, medical and health information from my medical record and that MyChart does not reflect the entire contents of the medical record.

I also understand that I may request a paper or electronic copy or a written summary of my medical record from SRHS.
  • An individual must be 18 years of age or older, or a married or emancipated minor, to create a MyChart account. For adolescents between the ages of 16 and 18, a MyChart account may only be created by SRHS with the written consent of their parent/legal guardian. The written consent authorizes SRHS to allow the adolescent to have their own MyChart account.
  • Individuals age 18 or older may request proxy access to another individual's MyChart account, including parents or legal guardians requesting access to their minor child's account, by completing the Proxy Access portion of the MyChart Consent form and submitting it to SRHS. A parent's proxy access for a minor will expire when the minor turns 18. The amount of information the parent will be able to see in MyChart may depend on the age and legal status of the minor. The limits on MyChart access does not affect any other right the parent may have to obtain a minor child's medical records.All medical information available in MyChart is also available to your Proxy. Proxy access will only be granted to individuals with parental rights or legal guardianship over the MyChart account holder. The person requesting Proxy access must demonstrate the legal right to the account holder's medical information. A MyChart account will be activated for the account holder and the Proxy. If the Proxy's legal status changes, the account holder can revoke the proxy access electronically via MyChart or call 1-888-84CHART for assistance. SRHS reserves the right to revoke Proxy access at any time for any reason.
  • I understand that my Internet access and activities in MyChart may be tracked by computer audit trails and that entries I make may become part of my electronic health record.
  • I agree that I will not use MyChart to communicate offensive, hateful, defamatory or discriminatory speech. I understand that access to MyChart is provided by SRHS as a convenience and that SRHS has the right to restrict my access to MyChart at any time for any reason, without notice to me. I understand that use of MyChart is voluntary, and I am not required to use MyChart, or to authorize a MyChart Proxy.
