MyChart is for moms

February 26, 2018 | by Edward-Elmhurst Health

How many things can you keep straight mentally before you start to forget stuff?

For moms, the list is impressively long. But even moms have their limits.

When it comes to medical care, it’s hard to remember when your child is due for a vaccination or the date and time of the well visit appointment you made months ago.

Luckily, you don’t have to remember.

MyChart® is a free, secure website and mobile app that gives you direct online access to information from your child’s electronic medical record (EMR).

You can access your child’s medical records 24/7, schedule appointments, manage your child’s health information and communicate with his/her doctor on your mobile devices, including Apple Watch — all in one place.

For busy moms, MyChart makes life a whole lot easier:

  • Pregnant? Pre-register on MyChart for your baby’s upcoming birth.
  • Schedule or request medical appointments for your child. No more phone calls!
  • Keep track of your child’s growth and development.
  • Get appointment reminders. Enable alerts on your phone and the MyChart app will ping you.
  • Send secure electronic messages to your child’s doctor’s office care team.
  • When you get to the doctor’s office, check in for your child’s appointment through MyChart and minimize your wait.
  • Can’t remember when your child’s last appointment was and what happened? View his/her appointment history and details about each one.
  • Check if your child received the immunizations he/she needs for school.
  • Need to renew your child’s prescription? Request a prescription renewal in minutes.

MyChart is available to patients of Edward Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital and select Edward-Elmhurst Health affiliated physician practices.

It’s not only helpful for busy moms — MyChart makes life easier for everyone! Here are the top 10 reasons anyone should use MyChart.
