OUR NEW PATIENT PORTAL
UK HealthCare MyChart Patient Portal
Manage your care 24/7 using our quick and easy online platform
On June 5, 2021, UK HealthCare will launch UK HealthCare MyChart, our new patient portal. (Learn how this transition will impact your UK HealthCare FollowMyHealth account.)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Below are answers to some common questions about MyChart. Find more FAQs here.
Who do I contact if I have questions?
Is there a fee to use MyChart?
MyChart is a free service offered to our patients.
Can you send me a new activation code? I have lost mine, let it expire or did not receive one.
Contact us at UKHCMyChart@uky.edu and after we verify your information, a new code will be sent via U.S. Postal Mail. Privacy issues prevent us from e-mailing a new activation code to you.
What if I don’t have a computer?
Your MyChart account can be accessed from any computer, tablet or smartphone. You are also welcome to access the portal using a computer in our Don and Cathy Jacobs Health Education Center (HEC), in UK Chandler Hospital Pavilion A near the bridge to the parking garage. The HEC staff can answer many of your questions.
Proxy accounts for minor children and dependent adults
If you are the personal representative (for example, parent, legal guardian, attorney-in-fact) of a UK HealthCare patient, you may request access to the patient’s health information. This is known as proxy access.
You may request proxy access via the UK HealthCare MyChart patient portal or through the UK HealthCare Health Information Management office.
Some proxy relationships require special documentation, such as power of attorney or proof of guardianship. Questions about proxy documentation requirements may be directed to the Health Information Management (HIM) office at 859-323-5117. You can also contact the HIM office through MyChart. (Select Messages from the top menu, hit the "Ask a Question” button and then select “HIM Document Question” in the dropdown menu.)
Note: KRS 214.185 allows minors, in certain situations, to be treated without parental/guardian consent. Under HIPAA 45 CFR 164.502, this sometimes prevents UK HealthCare from releasing information to the parent/guardian.
