Top 4 reasons moms love MyChart

"Being a mom is easier than I ever imagined." Said no mom ever.

As a parent or caregiver, we know you're juggling a lot. Fortunately, we have a helpful tool to lighten your load.

MyChart is our free, secure website and mobile app that gives you 24/7 access to information from your child's medical record.

Moms, especially, love MyChart. Here are four reasons why:

"It helps me stay organized."

  • MyChart provides access to the medical records of your kids, even your spouse if he/she gives permission. This handy feature is called "proxy" access.
  • You have a record of all past and future appointments for each member of your family. Plus, we'll send you appointment reminders whichever way you prefer (text, email, etc.)
  • Need an updated immunization record for school? It's available 24/7 at your fingertips.

"It saves me time."

  • MyChart lets you fill out registration forms and health questionnaires before your appointment, so you have less to do when you arrive.
  • Want to skip the check-in desk? Use the MyChart app to let us know when you arrive in the waiting room. If everything is on file, we'll notify you (via the app) to take a seat.
  • Tired of creating new accounts? With MyChart, you only need one account to access your "proxies" (children and spouse). If you use the MyChart app, you can also enable Face ID, making log-in super-fast.

"I have access to care from anywhere."

  • With on-demand video visits in MyChart, you can consult a provider and get a prescription for your little one—day or night. No appointment needed. Ages 2 and older.
  • Experiencing COVID-19 symptoms? Take our online COVID-19 screening in MyChart and self-schedule a test in La Crosse. No more waiting on the phone.
  • Have a question for your child's provider? MyChart lets you send electronic messages to your care team. You'll get a response within two days—and often less.

"It's my back-up brain."

  • Forgot what the doctor ordered? No worries. MyChart gives you access to all your providers' notes, now including notes from your children's visits.
  • Don't let pregnancy brain get the best of you. We send appointment reminders. You select your preferred form of communication.
  • MyChart lets you track your child's growth and development. No more handouts to misplace before you get home.

There's a lot to love about MyChart.
