Connect Your MyChart Accounts

If you use more than one patient portal, such as Patient Gateway, MyChildren's or any other hospital MyChart account, you can connect them to get a streamlined view of your care across hospitals.

  1. Start by logging in to any MyChart patient portal
  2. Go to the "Menu" (three horizontal lines in the upper left) and select "Link My Accounts" under "Sharing." You should see a list of local organizations to choose from, but you can also search for an organization by name, city, or state. 
  3. Select any organizations you want to connect with, then select the “Link Accounts” button.
  4. You may need to answer certain security questions or complete identity verification steps to link to that organization. If you are unable to complete the verification steps, you will need to contact that organization for assistance.
