This is an agreement (“Agreement”) between the University of Kansas Hospital Authority, its affiliate Jayhawk Primary Care, and any other related entities ( “Medical Provider”), and you for access to MyChart services, software or online tools (collectively, “MyChart”).
You agree that MyChart is a communication service offered as a convenience to our patients. You understand that it provides you with online access to portions of your electronic medical record and that you are solely responsible for any sharing of MyChart content that you intentionally or unintentionally communicate to others. As secure messaging becomes available, you understand that messages will be routed to the appropriate department as necessary for handling, and therefore employees other than your healthcare provider may be involved in addressing your request. Therefore, use of MyChart may not be appropriate if there is sensitive information that you would only wish to discuss directly with your provider.
You understand that you may receive messages, test results and other communications delivered via MyChart. Therefore, you may not receive duplicate written reports of this information. You understand that not all of your medical information may appear on your MyChart. Posting of information is at the discretion of your individual physician(s).
Any person who is 18 or older or is otherwise legally emancipated may receive proxy access to another individual's MyChart account. In order to be granted proxy access, the patient over 18 years of age must complete the Proxy Access consent form and submit to the "Medical Provider." Proxy access to MyChart may be granted to parties with parental rights or legal guardianship of the individual, individuals who have a durable Health Care Power of Attorney or to others as requested by the patient. A MyChart account will be activated for the proxy. If the proxy's relationship with the account holder changes, the patient must inform the clinic immediately by calling MyChart Support at 913-588-4040. "Medical Provider" reserves the right to revoke proxy access at any time for any reason.
You are solely responsible for any and all acts and omissions that occur under your account or password, and you agree not to engage in unacceptable use of MyChart, which includes, without limitation, use of MyChart to: (a) disseminate or transmit material that, to a reasonable person may be abusive, obscene, pornographic, defamatory, harassing, grossly offensive, vulgar, threatening or malicious; (b) disseminate, store or transmit files, graphics, software or other material that actually or potentially infringes the copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret or other intellectual property rights of any person; (c) interfere, disrupt or attempt to gain unauthorized access to other accounts on MyChart or any other computer network; (d) disseminate, store or transmit viruses, Trojan horses or any other malicious code or program; and/or (e) violate any statute, law, rule or regulation or otherwise violate the legal rights of a third person.
You can discontinue your use of MyChart at any time by contacting MyChart Support at 913-588-4040. If we determine that you have violated this Agreement and/or abused the use of MyChart, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to discontinue your use of MyChart. You will be notified if your access to MyChart is discontinued.
As we provide your health care, we are required to maintain documentation of your medical history, current conditions, treatment plan and all treatments given, including the results of all tests, procedures and therapies. MyChart is an Internet application that enables a patient to have secure Web-based access to portions of their electronic medical record and may allow for secure electronic messaging with your health care providers. Messages you send via MyChart may be made part of your permanent medical record and may be accessible to current and future staff members who are appropriately involved with your care. All of our generated electronic medical record content is subject to all state and federal statutes governing the security and confidentiality of medical records.
MyChart should never be used for urgent matters. Delays can occur based upon volume, availability of staff and the complexity of your condition. “Medical Provider” will make our best effort to provide a timely response to electronic inquiries. In some cases, the clinic staff that needs to respond to an electronic inquiry or other communication may not be immediately available, so a patient should allow at least three (3) business days for a response. Accordingly, emergency situations requiring immediate attention should not be submitted electronically.
MyChart may be routed to other authorized caregivers within the “Medical Provider” in order to facilitate a timely response to your request. All communications between you and your health care team using MyChart are carried over a secure, encrypted connection directly into the electronic medical record. While you may receive Internet email messages notifying you of new messages in your MyChart Inbox, these emails will not contain any confidential medical information.
It is extremely important that you keep your MyChart ID and PASSWORD in a secure location and completely confidential. Anyone with access to your MyChart ID and PASSWORD will be able to view your medical information and communicate with your health care team as if that person were you. It is your responsibility to prevent disclosure of your temporary activation code and password and to change your password and password hint if you feel your security has been compromised. You can change your password and password hint online at any time.
Due to the sensitivity of certain health information, physicians and/or caregivers may elect not to release certain information via MyChart.
