- 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.

What is a bill with a statement number?
This bill is commonly used for specialty care or hospital services. It includes a statement number.See an example of a bill with a statement number (PDF)

- Can I view a family member's medical record in MyChart?
Yes, you can. MyChart proxy access allows you to access the medical records of your family members and others you care for, with their permission. You must be at least 18 years old to have proxy access to another person's medical record.
You might also want to grant a family member or friend access to your medical records when you need assistance managing your appointments and other medical needs. To give someone access to your medical record, grant access via a proxy invite through the Friends and Family Access page in MyChart.
We want to help you navigate the process of signing up for and using your University Hospitals MyChart account. If you have additional questions, please contact the MyChart Patient Support Line 24/7 at 216-286-8960.
