MyChart Your Hospital Stay Available for All Patients at HMH

For All Hospital Staff

Access to the Your Hospital Stay feature on the MyChart app is being made available to all admitted patients at HMH starting Friday, April 3. Through shared access on MyChart and Your Hospital Stay, designated family members and caregivers can continue to track a patient’s condition, even when they’re unable to visit due to COVID-19.

 With Your Hospital Stay, they can view:

  • A list of diagnoses being treated for, as well as previously identified issues.

  • Names and pictures of the attending doctor, nurses, therapists and other members of the treatment team.

  • Prescribed inpatient medications, as well as any medications taken at home.

  • Most of the recent lab results.

  • Articles and videos specific to the condition and treatment.

Your Hospital Stay is only available through the MyChart app on a personal smartphone or tablet. Patients can designate shared access to their MyChart accounts with specific family members or caregivers who have a MyChart account, by selecting Friends and Family access through the Account Settings menu.

Please print the MyChart Patient Information and Shared Access handout to share with your patients and families.

Front desk schedulers and patient registration staff should continue to encourage all patients to activate a Houston Methodist MyChart account. For more information, review the MyChart Instant Activation tip sheet.
