Click on the link in the email, sign in and you’re ready to see the alert.

If some of my health information on MyChart is not correct, what should I do?

What if I need more information than is available through MyChart?

How does MyChart work if I'm a patient with Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare and/or DuPage Medical Group?

Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare and DuPage Medical Group are jointly providing MyChart to improve the coordination of and access to care for patients. You will see your medical information from these physician groups if you are currently a patient. You will also be able connect online with these physicians through your one MyChart account. And, you will conveniently have only one username and password for MyChart!

If you see a physician/s at one group but not the other, your MyChart account will reflect your medical information only from that provider and will not be connected to or accessible by other physician offices. For instance, if your primary care is at Edward Medical Group, and you don't see any physician at DuPage Medical Group, only EMG staff will have access to your records.

Can I also see my family members' health records?

Yes, you can. This is called "proxy" access. For a child under 12, this allows a parent or legal guardian to log into their personal MyChart account, and then view information regarding their child. Per State and Federal guidelines, after the child becomes 12 the parent will still have access to appointments and be able to send messages but will have limited access to the child's medical record information unless a consent form is signed by the adult and teen on a yearly basis. Once the child turns 18, the parent can get access to the patient's medical record information with the patient's authorization. It is also possible to request access to another adult's health record if you help manage that adult's medical care. For more information please inquire about our Proxy Access FAQ Form. You can download the appropriate proxy form from our Sign-Up Forms page.

Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my MyChart account?

MyChart offers direct access to your personal health record and communicating about another individual's information would be placed in your health record. This information would not appear in the correct health record and could potentially jeopardize medical care.

Can my spouse and I share one MyChart account?

No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must sign and submit a Release of Information request and establish their own MyChart account.
