How to Connect MyChart to the Apple Health App
Getting your health records from UAMS’s MyChart platform into your iPhone is simple:
- Go to the Health Records section of the Apple Health app
- Search for our institution
- Log in with the username and password that you normally use to access your MyChart account
After you log in once, your health records will start to appear in the Health app, and you will be notified when new records are ready to view. Your health record data is kept secure, because it is encrypted and protected with the passcode on your iPhone.
The Benefits of Using Apple Health and MyChart
This new function in the Health Records component of the Apple Health app integrates information from the patient’s hospital and clinic visits with the app, providing a one-stop source for patients to see their available medical data from participating providers whenever they choose. Previously, patients had to log into each care provider’s website and piece together the information manually.
Available data from UAMS MyChart includes test and lab results, allergies, immunizations, medical conditions, procedures and medications. Apple worked with the health care community to take a consumer-friendly approach and created Health Records where data is encrypted and protected with the user’s iPhone passcode, Touch ID or Face ID.
