Technical Support Questions

Can I access MyChart using any web browser or personal computer?

Popular web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome can be used to access your MyChart account if the browsers are running up-to-date versions. However, if you are using an old version of a web browser — or using a personal computer that runs on Windows XP or Vista — then you may need to upgrade your web browser to a current version to access your account.
