Benefit From MyChart
One year ago, Middlesex Health launched a new electronic medical record system called Epic and a patient portal called MyChart. This system has dramatically changed the level of access patients have to their medical providers — and their medical records.
Through MyChart, you can access your medical and financial records in one spot, and you can book medical appointments online, allowing you to bypass the phone queue and book an appointment with your provider when they are next available.
MyChart also allows you to fill out paperwork in advance of your visit, view lab and test results and your list of medications, pay your bills and securely email your doctor. You can even make your COVID-19 vaccine appointment through MyChart (as long as you are eligible according to state guidelines)!
Many Middlesex Health patients are already enjoying the benefits of MyChart. If you already have a MyChart account and have logged in recently, you may have noticed that the MyChart interface has a new look. Middlesex is always working to improve the patient experience, and MyChart is now easier to navigate, which means you should have a better experience both when using MyChart and when interacting with Middlesex.
If you do not have a MyChart account, you can get more information and sign up for an account here. To do so, you must be 18 or older to create an account. Getting an account will allow you to participate more actively in your health care. Patients under the age of 18 can also have a MyChart account, but their parent or guardian would have proxy access.
Reminder: You can access MyChart on the road! MyChart accounts are accessible on Apple or Android devices using the free and secure MyChart mobile app.
If you are a Middlesex Health patient with a MyChart account, you now have access to medical notes from physicians, nurses, etc. You also can access notes regarding your labs, imaging and pathology.
A hernia is the abnormal exit of tissue, or an organ, through the wall of the cavity where it normally resides, and there are many types. There are hernias that involve the groin, belly button and even the upper stomach, and they can sometimes cause life-threatening conditions.
