What's the difference between MyChartCentral and Lucy?

MyChartCentral is a hub from which you can access your Chesapeake Regional Healthcare MyChart account, other MyChart accounts nationwide, and Lucy. MyChartCentral allows you to easily access any MyChart account without needing to remember different usernames and passwords. Lucy is a personal health record that gives you a permanent home to organize all your medical information. You can request an updated copy of your medical record at any time and store it in Lucy. You can also add personal information about your health and choose to share it with Chesapeake Regional Healthcare and other organizations where you receive care.

The information that each of your healthcare organizations knows about you might be different, depending on the type of care they give you and when you were last seen. You can help keep everyone up to date by organizing your records in Lucy and sharing your information among all the different places where you receive care.

If information from another healthcare organization is wrong, contact that organization to make sure your information is corrected. After the information looks right in MyChart, you can get an updated copy in Lucy by requesting your chart again.

Each person controls their password, and the account cannot be accessed without that password.

Unlike conventional e-mail, all MyChart messaging is done while you are securely logged on to our website.
