MyCHART by Epic
What Is Epic?
Epic is a cloud-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. It is used across a broad range of practices, from community health centers, hospitals, to independent practices and specialties.
Epic has a strong focus on patient engagement and facilitating remote care. Epic EHR features include a robust patient portal called MyChart that will give you access to your health record in an easy-to-use portal. MyChart is available online and as an app for both Android and iOS operating systems.
