MyChart goes mobile: Free app gives MultiCare patients access to their medical records

Your health is now in your hands, thanks to a new mobile app for MultiCare patients.

The free MyChart app – which lets you access medical records, ask your doctor questions, review test results and more – is now available for iPhone and Android mobile devices, the Tacoma-based not-for-profit health system announced Wednesday.

MyChart gives MultiCare patients secure online access to personal health information, plus easy-to-use tools that make managing health care simple and convenient. MyChart safeguards your privacy with the latest security technology. It's easy to sign up and the service is free. Register for MyChart online at www.multicare.org/mychart or stop by your MultiCare provider's office and ask for your personal access code.

To download the app, visit the marketplace for your mobile device or visit www.multicare.org/mychart.

MultiCare is one of the few health systems in the nation to have a complete electronic health record system. All MultiCare outpatient clinics and hospitals are linked to the electronic health record called MultiCare Connect, which includes the secure patient portal called MyChart.
