MyChart provides an easy way to ask your doctor basic, non-urgent questions using secure electronic messaging. This way you can receive an answer without repeated calls. Having a convenient summary of your health information, such as when you are due for preventive tests like a mammogram or prostate exam, helps you be a more active partner in maintaining and improving your health.

We encourage you to sign up for your MyChart account at your next doctor’s visit. At your visit you will receive a MyChart instant activation link, valid for 24 hours, via text or email. 
Another way to register is using an activation code found on your After-Visit Summary sheet or Billing Correspondence. Go to and register using the activation code.

If you did not receive an activation code, lost it or it expired, you may call your healthcare provider to get one or ask to sign up during your next office visit.

Also, at any time, Trinity Health offers a self-service sign up for those who do not have an activation code. If the information entered matches the information we have in our system exactly as it appears, you will receive an email containing an access code. If it doesn’t match you can verify your information through a third party vendor. You can download this step-by-step guide to get started.
