MyChart: Your portal to more connected, convenient, and secure health care.

On November 9, the UVM Health Network is launched its new and improved electronic health record system (EHR). As a result, you will need to activate your MyChart account to access your online health information. No new health information will be added to your existing patient portal after November 8.

The launch of MyChart at CVMC is part of a UVM Health Network-wide transition to Epic as its EHR. Epic and MyChart bring a more connected, safe, secure, and convenient online health experience to patients.

Explore the screenshot of MyChart's landing page below to get acquainted with the portal, learn about its most popular features and learn how to activate your account on November 9.

Questions You Might Have

  1. What is MyChart?

    MyChart is the online patient portal associated with Epic, the electronic health record (EHR) used by the UVM Health Network.

    An EHR is a real-time, digital version of a patient’s medical record and can be viewed and managed by authorized health providers. EHRs have patient portals that give patients 24/7 online access to their personal health information from anywhere with an Internet connection.

    The Network is implementing Epic and MyChart at CVMC in two phases:

    1. November 9, 2019: Ambulatory departments and outpatient practices (see question 2).
    2. October 9, 2020: Hospital inpatient services, which often involve hospital stays.

    Epic and MyChart also launched at Porter Medical Center and Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital on November 9. The UVM Medical Center already uses Epic and their patient portal, called MyHealth Online, was upgraded and renamed MyChart on November 9.

  2. Which practices at CVMC will be getting MyChart for their patients?​
