- How do I sign up for UH MyChart?
There are several different methods of MyChart signup that might be used by different departments across your healthcare organization:
- Clinic staff might sign you up directly while you’re at the front desk or in the exam room.
- You might receive a MyChart activation code on your After Visit Summary or on a billing statement.
- You might receive a text message or email with an activation code when you come in for a visit.
- You might be able to use self-signup online to create a MyChart account by matching your information against what is on file in your medical record.
- Is UH MyChart secure?
We take great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. Access to information is controlled through secure activation codes, personal usernames and passwords. Each person controls their password, and the account must be accessed using that password. On mobile, the account may also be accessed using face ID or fingerprint login. Unlike conventional email, all MyChart messaging is done while you are securely logged in to our website or mobile app.
You can ensure that your account stays secure even if someone else has your username or password by turning on two-step verification. When this feature is turned on, you must enter a code that is sent to you by email or text message to log in to MyChart, in addition to using your username and password. For more information, check out our helpful video on two-step verification.
You might receive email or text notifications that contain links to MyChart. These notifications allow you to login to MyChart securely using a link that expires after a short time. Keeping your MyChart account secure means keeping your phone number and email account secure. If you think your phone number or email account may be compromised, you can change the phone number or email on file on the “Personal Information” page in MyChart. For further assistance, contact our MyChart Patient Support Line 24/7 at 216-286-8960.

You will generally receive a response within 1 – 3 business days.
Please note that MyChart messages should not be used for urgent situations. Call 9-1-1 or visit your nearest emergency room if you require immediate attention or if you are experiencing serious symptoms such as chest pain, difficulty breathing or uncontrolled bleeding.

Please try to give your provider as much advance notice as possible. Medications that are more closely regulated by the FDA have different requirements for prescribers. We are required by law to see the patient regularly to monitor medication use and usefulness.
