Frequently Asked Questions About MyChart
How do I set up a MyChart account?
There are several ways to sign up for a GHS MyChart account. You can sign up at your doctor’s office, either when you check in or with a provider in the exam room.
You also can sign up using the activation code from your after-visit summary or billing statement. You’ll need to enter this code at mychart.ghs.org to get an account. If you want to open an account and don’t have an activation code, you can request one at mychart.ghs.org and it will be emailed to you.

Can I access MyChart on my mobile device?
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.
What if I have a MyChart account at another facility?
Even if you have a MyChart account at another facility, you still need to create a GHS MyChart account if you are a GHS patient. However, you can easily link your accounts online through a MyChart tool called Lucy.
What is a proxy account and how do I set one up?
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.
What will happen to my other GHS patient portal(s)?
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).
