Your Interactive Health Record— ”MyChart. Welia Health participates in a secure program in conjunction with the Excellian electronic health record system sponsored by the Allina Health System to provide controlled access for patients (or their authorized proxies) to certain information maintained in the health record. The program gives secure online access to wellness tools and selects, limited health information in the interactive health record (MyChart) to a patient or a person who the patient chooses (proxy). A patient’s entire health record is not reproduced online in the interactive health record; rather, the interactive health record is a selected part of the information in a patient’s health record, such as prescriptions, basic test results, summary medical history, appointments and similar information. Your provider may decide which types of information to release into your interactive health record.

Note: MyChart is owned and operated by a third-party service provider; it is not owned or operated by Welia Health. Please review MyChart (powered by Allina Health)’s terms and conditions and privacy policy when using MyChart: such terms apply to your use of MyChart.

MyChart provides a means for patients (or authorized proxies) to obtain test results performed at participating facilities. Test results will be delivered electronically to the account in most cases. Individuals can also agree that an electronic copy of their discharge instructions will be provided for each inpatient admission. Please be aware that when a patient and his or her spouse share an account, they will both have access to billing account summary information (this information is not confidential to the patient). If you do not want this feature, please call the Welia Health business office to request a separate account for you and your spouse. We reserve the right to terminate access to your account at any time, for any reason. A user’s access to the account will be terminated if the user has misused or abused the system, violated any terms of use, or used the system for purposes other than those for which it is intended to be used.

Restrictions for Interactive Health Records of Minors. Parents and legal guardians may request access to their minor child’s health information through authorized proxy access (access by one person to another person’s interactive health record (MyChart)). The amount of information the parent will be able to see depends on the age and legal status of the minor. The limits on interactive health record access does not affect any other legal right the parent may have to obtain a minor child’s records. For more information on proxy access, see frequently asked questions (FAQs) in MyChart.

Your Privacy and Security Responsibilities. When you sign up to use your MyChart account, you will be given an activation code. You will use that code to create a username and password. This username and password will allow you to view your interactive health record, submit comments that may become part of your health record, and in some cases, communicate with your healthcare providers. It is important that you keep your access code, username, and password completely confidential and secure. You should change your password immediately if you believe that your security may have been compromised; you should also immediately contact the MyChart technical support center (1.866.301.6698) to report any suspected breach of the security of your username and password. In addition, you should change your password regularly to help keep your account secure. You can change your password online at any time. The privacy of your health information is carefully protected by your healthcare providers.

If you have any questions about the security of your password, please call 866.301.6698.

You have the option to upload a profile picture to your account that will also assist in verifying your identity when you receive care and services from providers. When you upload your photograph, it will be reviewed and may be included in your electronic health record (MyChart), where it will be visible to individuals with access to your health record and be shared with our affiliate partners in accordance with our Privacy Policy. It is your responsibility to ensure that your photograph is appropriate and that you are the only individual depicted in the photo. If you do not want your photo to be included in your account or your health record, you should not upload it.

Messaging. For all urgent medical matters, contact your physician’s office by phone, go to an emergency room, or dial 911. All messages to you from your Welia Health provider are sent over a secure, encrypted connection. You may receive email messages at the email address you provided to us. These messages will notify you of new messages in your account, but will not contain any confidential medical information. You will need to sign in to your MyChart account to access the full message. Any person with access to the email account to which these messages are sent will be able to see the notifications.

Shared Electronic Health Records. If you gave consent to share your electronic health record with affiliated partners, you will be able to access all health information across all participating organizations through the interactive health record (MyChart). If you declined consent to share your electronic health record with affiliated partners, you will have multiple accounts, one for each organization, each with its own username and password.
