What is MyChart?

MyChart is a secure online service that lets you see your medical and personal health information from wherever you are, at any time. This helps you keep an eye on your health status and make informed decisions.

MyChart allows you to:

  • Read your test results, progress notes, discharge notes, medical imaging reports and more.
  • Share your records with friends or family (those you allow).
  • Record your health measurements, such as blood pressure or weight.

You will be able to view only those records that are final on or after Oct. 1, 2016. Not all records will be on the portal. You can see all your records if you contact the Health Records Department at 613-737-8800.

How long before you see the results?

Doctors and nurses need enough time to contact patients about sensitive test results before they are displayed in MyChart. Some records are delayed, even after the results are final.

MyChart Results
Lab and microbiology No delay
Pathology and medical imaging reports 15 days
Notes about surgery 7 days
Other records No delay
