This is a demo of OHSU Hospital's new MyChart iPhone application.

OHSU has become one of the first institutions in the country to launch an iPhone/iPad application allowing patients secure access health records from any place where they can receive a wireless signal. The MyChart iPhone Application, created by Epic Systems, allows users to immediately access:

Test Results – Once they are released by your healthcare provider

Messages from the doctor’s office – Patients can both view and reply to messages remotely

Appointments – Patients can view future and past appointments including information about the time and location of a visit

Health advice – The application also allows patients to ask the doctor’s office for medical advice anytime, anywhere

Health advisories – The application tells you when you are due for vaccinations and other treatments

A health summary of your current health - See your health history, current diagnosis list, and information on medications allergies and immunizations

Proxy access – You can also access a family members health information (with their approval) via the application

The MyChart iPhone application requires a login so that your personal health information remains protected. The application uses the same bank-level security that is used for other sensitive data transferred via the Internet

The MyChart iPhone Application is an extension of OHSU’s MyChart Web site, which provides users with 24-7 private and secure access to their health records via computer. The MyChart Web site has been available to OHSU patients since 2006. The mobile application launched in late 2010.

Both the MyChart iPhone application and access to the MyChart Web site are free of charge. To sign up for MyChart, patients need to need to get an activation letter when checking-in for an appointment or during the appointment itself. The MyChart iPhone application is available once patients have signed up for MyChart online.
