By using my unique activation code to activate my MyChart access, I agree to these Terms and Conditions and any future revisions to them. I also agree that these Terms and Conditions make up a written agreement between Parkview Health System, Inc., its affiliated healthcare providers and their business units, including Parkview Physicians Group, (“Parkview Health”) and me documenting my informed consent for the use of MyChart.
I understand that MyChart and/or physician-patient email should NEVER be used for emergencies or urgent health care matters. If I believe I am experiencing an emergency or urgent or life threatening health condition I will either phone my physician, go directly to the Emergency Department of a local hospital, or call 911.
MyChart will provide the following services:
Other services may be added as Parkview Health develops the MyChart web portal.
I understand and agree that MyChart may not be used for:
These will require a telephone call, and possibly an office visit, to Parkview Health.
If my physician is out of the office or unavailable to respond to my MyChart message, I understand and agree that my message may be routed to another Parkview Health provider. I also understand that Parkview Health providers may send me messages via MyChart. I understand that I will be able to tell when my messages have been received. It is my responsibility to monitor these messages and respond in an appropriate manner. I must provide Parkview Health with a valid email address and update Parkview Health if I change my email account. Parkview Health may send me emails via my personal email address to notify me that I have new MyChart messages. Messages sent via my personal email will not contain personal health information. I understand that Parkview Health cannot be responsible for information accessed by others to whom I have given access to my email.
I agree that all messages I send through MyChart will be regarding my health care and conditions or the health care and conditions of a person for whom I have proxy access. I understand that asking for advice for any other friend or family member is not allowed.
I understand that I will be given a unique activation code by Parkview Health to allow me access to MyChart. The first time I log on to MyChart I will be required to create a unique user ID and a password. I agree to keep my activation code and my user ID and password confidential. Anyone with access to my user ID and password would have access to my personal health information and the personal health information of my proxies; they would also be able to add to my personal health information and send messages to my providers as if they are me. It is my responsibility to change my password if I believe it has been compromised or shared with someone else. I understand that it is recommended that I change my password frequently. Every time I log into MyChart, my user ID and password will be logged in an audit trail in the computer system.
I understand that if Parkview Health discovers that I have inappropriately shared my access code or password or that I have abused my access privileges, Parkview Health may terminate my participation in MyChart. I understand that Parkview Health takes no responsibility for and disclaims any and all liability for damages arising from a breach of medical record confidentiality resulting from my sharing or losing my access code or password.
I understand that Parkview Health may provide links or reference to other sites, but Parkview Health has no responsibility for the content of such other sites and shall not be liable for any damages or injury arising from that content. Any links to other sites are provided as merely a convenience to the users of this web portal.
I understand that MyChart may not always be available to me due to system maintenance, back-ups or failures. Access is provided on an "as is available" basis and I am not guaranteed access at any particular time. I also understand that email is not a confidential means of communication. I agree to waive any rights that I may have against Parkview Health and any supplier or operator of the MyChart technology for any loss of information due to technical failures and/or unintended breaches of confidentiality because of unauthorized access to my information as a result of my decision to communicate with Parkview Health in this manner.
There is no charge for use of MyChart.
