The app is free, but you need a smart phone to use it. From one of those devices, go to the Android Market or iTunes App Store and search for “MyChart” and install it. You will click on Sentara as your health care provider.
Alternatively, you can access the Android or iTunes App Store on a desktop or laptop computer, download the app, and install it when the mobile device is synched. How do I sign up?
Sentara patients who wish to participate will be issued a MyChart activation code during their office visit. This code will enable you to login and create your own login ID and password. If you were not issued an activation code, ask for one during your next office visit with your Sentara Medical Group
doctor. Is it secure?
Yes. To protect your personal information, the app uses the same type of security measures as mobile banking apps.
No sensitive data is stored on the iPhone’s memory.
To access your medical record, you must log-in each time with your unique login ID and password – just as you would from a computer to verify authorization.
To further enhance security, you may enable a passcode for your Apple device that will prompt you each time you turn on or wake up the device that offers protection if you become separated from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
You should always log-out at the end of your session to further protect your personal health information. Are all the Sentara MyChart Online features available through this mobile app?
