Share COVID-19 Results Release Process with Patients

For Inpatient Clinicians

Handouts are now available to help our patients learn how to access their COVID-19 test results quickly and easily through MyChart. Be sure to provide your patients with this handout.

COVID-19 test results will auto-release to MyChart without a 24-hour hold, giving patients their results as soon as possible and helping to reduce questions to our clinics. Patients tested in clinics, testing centers, PATS or EDs will receive automated COVID-19 test information and results, based on preference, through CareSense. This includes texts, calls and/or email alerts when their results are ready. FAQs will be provided for positive or negative results.

Note: CareSense will not send messages to admitted patients.
