PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY AND COMPLETELY BEFORE USING MYCHART
THESE MYCHART TERMS AND CONDITIONS ("TERMS AND CONDITIONS") GOVERN YOUR USE OF MYCHART AND THIS WEB SITE ("WEB SITE"). IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE MYCHART.
THE USE OF MYCHART IS COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY AND IS NOT REQUIRED TO RECEIVE HEALTH CARE FROM CHESAPEAKE REGIONAL HEALTHCARE. "CHESAPEAKE REGIONAL HEALTHCARE" MEANS CHESAPEAKE HOSPITAL AUTHORITY, 736 BATTLEFIELD BLVD. NORTH, AND ITS CONTROLLED AFFILIATES THAT OWN AND/OR OPERATE ONE OR MORE HOSPITALS OR PHYSICIAN PRACTICES LOCATED IN VIRGINIA OR NORTH CAROLINA. CHESAPEAKE REGIONAL HEALTHCARE IS SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS "WE," "US," OR "OUR" IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
For all medical emergencies, go to the Emergency Department of a local hospital or dial 911.
MyChart should not be used to communicate urgent matters to your health care provider - please call your physician's office if you have an urgent question or concern.
When we provide health care services, we are required by law to maintain records that document your care, including (but not limited to) medical history, current health status and relevant diagnoses regarding acute or chronic conditions or problems, all test results and reports, and any treatments, therapies or procedures provided or performed. We may maintain your information in paper format or electronically - or a combination of both. For purposes of these Terms and Conditions, "electronic medical record" means the electronic portion of your medical record.
MyChart provides you with access to some (but not all) of the information contained in your electronic medical record. Sometimes, MyChart shows a summary or a description of your information, and not the actual entries made by a physician that are otherwise included in your physician or hospital-based medical record. As a result, you should not rely on information accessed via MyChart as complete.
If you need a complete medical record, please make your request through the established procedures for requesting medical records of the physician practice or hospital where you are receiving your medical care.
MyChart may be available for adult (18 and older) patients of Chesapeake Regional Healthcare who have an electronic medical record at a Chesapeake Regional Healthcare physician practice or hospital system where MyChart has been implemented. MyChart may also be available to legal representatives, guardians and/or other authorized persons who may act as health care proxies of Chesapeake Regional Healthcare patients. If you are not within this group of authorized persons, you are not permitted to use MyChart.
When you log into MyChart as the authorized proxy of a Chesapeake Regional Healthcare patient, these Terms and Conditions apply to you. In such circumstances, references to "your information," "your medical record," "your health care provider" and similar references shall be deemed to refer to the information, medical record and health care provider of the Chesapeake Regional Healthcare patient for whom you have been granted proxy access. Chesapeake Regional Healthcare maintains a separate process for establishing proxy access through a Chesapeake Regional Healthcare facility, such as a physician's practice office or a hospital. Generally, if a person is permitted under state law to serve as a proxy for a Chesapeake Regional Healthcare patient, then that person will be afforded proxy access. If a Chesapeake Regional Healthcare patient revokes proxy access, then the proxy's access to such patient's MyChart information will be revoked. Chesapeake Regional Healthcare reserves the right to revoke proxy access at any time for any reason.
We may modify these Terms and Conditions at any time. Any modifications made to these Terms and Conditions will be effective immediately upon your agreement to such modified terms or your continued use of MyChart (whichever occurs first). Any aspect of MyChart may be changed, supplemented, deleted or updated with or without notice at the sole discretion of Chesapeake Regional Healthcare.
MyChart includes a feature that permits you to send an electronic message to a doctor's office. Your messages should only relate to your own health condition(s) or those of a person for whom you are acting as a health care proxy (such as a child). We will try to respond promptly to messages we receive, but in some cases, the staff that needs to respond to your message or other inquiry may not be available immediately. Accordingly, please allow at least two (2) business days for a response to your message.
Emergency situations requiring immediate attention should not be submitted electronically through MyChart. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, GO TO THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT OF A LOCAL HOSPITAL OR DIAL 911. If you have an urgent need to contact your doctor's office, please do so by telephone.
Any electronic message you send through MyChart will be reviewed initially by a member of Chesapeake Regional Healthcare's clinical staff, usually a nurse. If physician input is not needed to address your message, your message may not be reviewed by a physician. Messages you send (and our responses) may be made a part of your permanent medical record. Furthermore, we are only able to respond to messages based on the information you provide. If insufficient or incorrect information is provided, we may not be able to provide a proper response. It is your obligation to monitor MyChart for responses to your messages and for messages originating from your doctor's office. In some circumstances your doctor's office may choose to respond to you through a method other than MyChart (such as by telephone).
If you provide us with an email address, you will be notified whenever you have been sent a message through MyChart and when there is new medical information to be viewed on MyChart. Please remember that this means anyone with access to your email account would be able to see this notification, including a spouse, employer or anyone else able to access your email account. Although no private medical information will be included in a notification email, the notification that new medical information is available on MyChart may be information that you would not want others to know. This should be taken into account when making a decision about providing an email address.
