Yes. After opening a MyChart account, you can download the MyChart app onto your mobile device for even quicker access. Be sure to select Greenville Health System as your medical center.
GHS currently is in the process of implementing online appointment scheduling (in which you can choose your own appointment day and time) through MyChart at its primary care practices. Some practices already offer this feature. We hope to have online appointment scheduling available in all of our family medicine, internal medicine and pediatric practices by the end of 2018.
You can request an appointment through MyChart at all GHS practices. This involves sending a request with your preferred dates and times to the practice, and then being scheduled for an appointment that meets those requirements (if one is available) by your doctor’s office.
A MyChart proxy account enables you to access another person’s MyChart account through your own account. If that person is an adult (e.g., an aging parent), you will need their permission to open a proxy account to access their MyChart info.
Proxy accounts also are a good way for parents to keep track of their children’s health information. Parents with more than one child can link all of their children’s MyChart accounts to their own through proxy access.
The first step in setting up a proxy account is to make sure both you and the other person have a MyChart account. To link your child’s account, ask the front office staff the next time you visit your pediatrician’s office. You also can do this for another adult whose account you wish to link to yours. Note that both parties must be present to set up the proxy access.
Even if you have a MyChart account at another facility, you still need to create a GHS MyChart account to see care received from GHS care providers. However, you can easily link your accounts online through a MyChart tool called Lucy.
The MyHealth First Network (Orion) portal will remain available in addition to MyChart. Any other patient portal(s) will be active for a period of time. MyChart will not contain a copy of all the information found in the other portal(s).
