Terms & Conditions for User Access to the UCSD Medical Center “MyUCSDChart”

University of San Diego Medical Center (UCSD Medical Center) is pleased to offer you the ability to view parts of your medical record and interact with your physician’s office online by using MyUCSDChart. This web site and related services are subject to compliance with the terms and conditions set forth below. Please read the following information carefully. Your continued use of this Site will indicate your agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth below. If you do not agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, promptly exit this Site.

Your privacy is important to us. UCSD Medical Center will use your confidential medical information in order to provide you health care services. UCSD Medical Center takes many precautions to maintain your confidential medical information in strict confidence and will not deliberately disclose any information regarding you to any unaffiliated third party unless you authorize that person to receive your information or the information is permitted to be disclosed by law. Please review the UCSD Medical Center Notice of Privacy Practices for a thorough description of how we gather, use and protect your confidential medical information. All messages sent and received within MyUCSDChart that contain medical information are subject to all state and federal laws governing the security and confidentiality of medical records.

A. Use of MyUCSDChart

NEVER send any messages requiring urgent attention using MyUCSDChart. Physicians and staff do their best to read and respond to requests within three business days. However, delays can occur based upon volume and availability of staff. Therefore, for all urgent medical matters, contact your health care provider's office immediately, go to an emergency room, or call 911.

B. Eligibility

Two requirements must be met for a patient to be eligible to participate in UCSDMyChart. First, you must be 18 years or older. Second, you must be an active patient of a UCSD Medical Center health care provider who has elected to offer MyUCSDChart to his/her patients. IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all UCSD Physicians will choose to communicate using MyUCSDChart, in which case communication will be through US mail service or telephone.

C. Activation Code

MyUCSDChart is designed as a secure Internet-based environment through which you may receive confidential medical information about yourself. Once you sign up for MyUCSDChart, you will be given a one-time-only MyUCSDChart "Activation Code" that you will use to activate your account. You will then create your own MyUCSDChart username, password and password hint. Please DO NOT SHARE your password with anyone. The individual MyUCSDChart username and password you choose when you first log-on to MyUCSDChart are the keys to protecting the confidentiality of your information. You are responsible for remembering your MyUCSDChart username and password and for keeping them confidential.

  1. From the time you receive your temporary, one-time use Activation Code, you will have ONLY 90 days to log-on and activate your MyUCSDChart account. After 90 days, if you have not activated your account, your temporary ten-digit "Activation Code" will expire. PLEASE activate your account as soon as possible so that you may begin using the services immediately, and not risk the inconvenience of having to sign up a second time.
  2. After you have activated your MyUCSDChart account, MyUCSDChart will become the primary vehicle through which you will receive important messages from your primary care health care provider and selected test results and other personal medical information. You will continue to receive communications via the United States Postal Service or other means from health care providers that have opted to not use MyUCSDChart.
  3. Through MyUCSDChart you may request new appointments and prescription renewals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We ask that you first contact your pharmacy for existing, non-narcotic, prescription refills. Physicians and staff do their best to read and respond to requests within three business days. However, delays can occur based upon volume and availability of staff. Therefore, for all urgent medical matters, contact your health care provider's office immediately, go to an emergency room, or call 911.
  4. You MUST provide us with your email address when activating your MyUCSDChart account and keep your email address current via the "Personal Preferences" link in MyUCSDChart. No confidential information will be sent to your email, but you will receive email notification whenever a new result has been released to your MyUCSDChart account. You therefore MUST verify and update your email address via the "Personal Preferences" link to ensure that you receive notification of newly released information in a timely manner.
  5. Once you have activated your account, your patient header display will include an active MyUCSDChart designation. You will then receive your personal health information as released by your health care provider in your personal MyUCSDChart account.

D. Electronic Messaging

  1. Your health care provider may choose to select an associate to help manage and respond to your messages. These may include nursing or other administrative staff who review messages sent via MyUCSDChart and either respond or route the message to the health care provider. Therefore use of MyUCSDChart secure messaging may not be appropriate if the message includes sensitive information that you would only wish to discuss directly with your provider.
  2. All communications between you and your UCSD Medical Center health care team using MyUCSDChart are carried over a secure, encrypted connection directly into the UCSD Medical Center electronic medical record. While you may receive Internet e-mail messages notifying you of new messages in your MyUCSDChart Inbox, these e-mails will not contain any confidential medical information.
  3. Messages you send via MyUCSDChart may become part of your permanent legal medical record at the discretion of the physician or support staff. Once a message is made part of your permanent medical record, it will be accessible to current and future UCSD Medical Center health care provider(s) and staff members who are appropriately involved with your care.
  4. You understand that when you receive messages, test results and other communications delivered via MyUCSDChart, you will not receive duplicate written reports of this information from UCSD Medical Center.

E. Medical Record Data

  1. 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 results of all test, procedures and therapies.

    NOT ALL of your UCSD Medical Center medical record may appear on your MyUCSDChart. Posting of information is at the discretion of your individual health care providers(s) and UCSD Medical Center.
  2. Your health care provider(s) will maintain and update your electronic record at each office visit. However, if you believe any information displayed in MyUCSDChart is not accurate, you are encouraged to notify your health care provider at your next office visit or submit a message to your clinic.
  3. The UCSD Medical Center reserves the right in the future to charge a fee for the use of MyUCSDChart. You will be notified of this change and asked to re-apply if you agree to the fee and wish to continue with this service.

If access is restricted for planned maintenance of the MyUCSDChart system, every effort will be made to communicate downtime to all users in advance.
