What you can do with MyChart
Message your health care provider
Medical questions don’t always come up when your doctor’s office is open. You used to have to wait for business hours, leave a message and hope the return call came when you were available to take it.
With MyChart you can send non-urgent medical questions to your provider any time using Message Center and you can expect a response in approximately 2 business days.
View test results
Receive notifications in MyChart Inbox the moment your test results have been added to your medical record.
Your can view images associated with your test results by clicking on a link in your test results.Many test results are released immediately to MyChart. This means you may see your results before your doctor sees them. Your care team will reach out to you to discuss any abnormal results.
Send a request for medication refills and update your preferred pharmacy information.
If you are using one of our OSU Outpatient Pharmacy locations, you may be able to receive home delivery or curbside pick-up for your prescriptions.
