MyChart is your personal, online health resource that allows you to communicate with your health care providers, request appointments and prescription renewals, and access portions of your UT Southwestern Medical Center electronic medical record using an encrypted, secure Internet connection.
All patients who are at least 18 years of age and under the care of a UT Southwestern provider will be enrolled in MyChart.
All new patients (18 years and older) to UT Southwestern will be automatically enrolled. If you’re a patient and currently not using MyChart, simply contact your provider's clinic and they’ll enroll you.
Your MyChart personal health information is carried over a secure, encrypted connection. This secure connection utilizes industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption as well as server-side digital certificate authentication to ensure secure data transmission between you and UT Southwestern. To prohibit unauthorized access, all medical information is stored safely behind our firewall in our electronic medical record system.
If you’ve lost your activation code, didn’t receive it, or let it expire, please contact the MyChart HelpLine during normal business hours at 214-648-8888 for assistance in obtaining a new activation code.
For your security, your access code expires after 60 days and is no longer valid after the first time you use it. If your code expires, please contact the MyChart HelpLine during normal business hours at 214-648-8888 for assistance in obtaining a new activation code.
No, your activation code is not your MyChart ID or password. You’ll use this code only once to log into MyChart for the first time. (The code will expire after you’ve used it or after 60 days.) During your first MyChart session, you’ll create your own unique MyChart ID and password.
Yes. Please keep your password confidential. Your password can be changed online at any time by you. Your password is not known by anyone at UT Southwestern.
If you believe someone has found out your password, please change it. You can change your password in MyChart at any time by choosing “Change Password” under the administrative options.
Click “Forgot Password” at the sign-in screen for MyChart. You’ll be asked for some information and then the password “hint” you created while enrolling will be emailed to you.
Make sure your Caps Lock key is not on. The password field is case sensitive. Make sure you don’t enter extra spaces in either the MyChart ID or password boxes and try again. If you’ve forgotten your MyChart ID or password, click on the “Forgot Password?” link and fill in the form.
Test results of a very sensitive nature are not automatically released through MyChart. Results of unreleased tests will be communicated to you by your ordering provider. There are a small number of tests whose results are stored in ancillary systems, which can’t be displayed through MyChart. You’ll have to contact your provider's office for those results.
UT Southwestern Medical Center has detailed policies and procedures in place regarding access to all medical records by our staff and employees and has carefully outlined the circumstances under which your medical information may be released to parties outside the organization. These policies conform to state and federal law and are designed to safeguard your privacy.
