Carilion Clinic is pleased to offer you limited access to your medical information through MyChart, a Web-based version of our electronic medical record system.
The Terms and Conditions of Use statement outlines our practices and our sensitivity to your right to privacy. We reserve the right to revoke access at any time for any reason.
Response to MyChart messages
Carilion Clinic will make its best effort to provide a timely response to electronic inquiries. In some cases, clinical staff that need to respond may not be immediately available. Please allow at least three (3) business days for a response. Accordingly, emergency situations requiring immediate attention should not be submitted electronically.
Furthermore, we are only able to respond to communications based on the information provided by the patient. If there is not enough information provided, we will be unable to give accurate and reliable services.
Patients will be notified through e-mail when there is new medical information to be viewed on MyChart. Any person with access to a patientís e-mail will be able to see this notification. This could include the patientís spouse, employer or anyone else who can access a patientís e-mail account. No private medical information will be sent, only a notification that new information is available in MyChart.
Security and Confidentiality
We offer the same degree of protection for medical information stored on MyChart as is given to all medical information stored by Carilion Clinic. Carilion Clinic is committed to protecting the confidentiality of your medical information. The information on MyChart will be accessible only to appropriate clinical staff engaged in your care. Firewalls, passwords, encryption, and audit trails are further used to safeguard your information. A record is kept each time a patient accesses MyChart.
As a MyChart user, your role in maintaining the security of your medical information is: 1) changing your password on a regular basis, and 2) keeping your login ID and password confidential.
I have read and understood the MyChart Terms and Conditions of Use statement and consent to the terms detailed therein.
