MyMercy provides you a summary of your health information based on your care team's entries in Mercy's electronic health record.


You can view your test results, see your appointments (both future and in the recent past), treatments you've received such as vaccinations, immunizations, any allergies you may have, and what medications your records show that you are taking (both those your care team has prescribed and any that you have reported to your care team).

Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play.

MyMercy provides an easy way to ask your care team basic, non-urgent questions using secure electronic messaging and to receive an answer without repeated calls.


Having a convenient summary of your health information, such as when you are due for preventive tests like a mammogram or prostate exam, can help you be a more active partner in maintaining and improving your health.

Your MyMercy information comes directly from your electronic health record at your care team's office.


Incorrect or updated information can be reported through MyMercy for your care team to review and add to your electronic health record.


Incorrect or updated information is also collected during eCheck-in prior to a visit with your care team. Confirming/updating information during this process will inform your care team of any changes necessary within your electronic health record.

You will need an internet-enabled device with a modern browser, such as Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome or Firefox or a smartphone.

If your child is under 16 years of age, you will need to have a MyMercy account that you can log in to that will link to the child's account.


If you already have a MyMercy account, you can set up your child's account by calling your child’s Mercy Care Team and requesting access.

Yes. If your child has a Mercy provider, you can contact your child’s Mercy care team to request a MyMercy access code for yourself and your child.

No. Each person needs to have his or her own MyMercy account, just like each person has his or her own medical record. However, you can grant another person, such as a spouse or family member, the ability to access your account. This is called “Account Access.”
 

  • Login > Menu > Account Access > Access To Your Medical Records > Instant Access


MyMercy will walk you through the steps for granting others access to your MyMercy account.

Your family members must grant you access to their MyMercy accounts if they choose.
 

  • Login > Menu > Account Access > Access To Your Medical Records > Instant Access
     

Your family member can complete the form to grant access to their account.

We do not recommend asking questions about a family member from your MyMercy account because MyMercy saves messages to your personal health record. Therefore, any communication about another individual’s information would be recorded in your health record. If the information does not appear in the correct health record, it could potentially jeopardize medical care for both you and the family member you asked about.

  • We believe you have the right to see your results as soon as they’re available. However, this means you may see results before your provider does. In some cases, results can be serious or hard to understand. If this concerns you, you may want to wait a few days to hear from your provider or, after waiting, message your provider.
  • Results will often be paired with standard ranges and a link to learn more about the test performed including how it was performed and purpose of the test.
  • Your provider or nurse is most able to help you to interpret your results.
  • Your provider or nurse usually reviews your results soon after they’re available.

 

A result may be ‘in reference’ or ‘out of reference.’


The standard range for a result is just one of the many tools used to assist in the interpretation of a result. Your provider, based on your specific medical history and the clinical issues being addressed, best interprets a specific test result.

A small number of results performed outside of Mercy will have to be scanned into the system. When this happens you’ll be notified that there is a new test result. However, you cannot see scanned images in MyMercy.


If you have questions about a specific test result, please contact your provider.

Digital scheduling allows you to self-schedule certain follow-up tests or exams, as ordered by your Mercy provider.

 

This lets you choose the location, date and time that work best for you.

  • If you’re a MyMercy user, simply log into your account. If you don’t have a MyMercy account, you’ll receive an email with a link to schedule. Select the exam > Complete the questions > Choose preferred appointment location, date and time > Verify contact and insurance information

Anyone with an email on file in the patient’s record or who has access to the patient’s MyMercy account will be notified that a test is ready to be scheduled. Patients under age 18 will not receive a notification.

Yes. You’ll need a valid email on file, as well as an accurate SSN and DOB, and we’ll email you a link to schedule. To set up a MyMercy account for future tests and appointments, register here.

Even if you receive a notification to self-schedule, Mercy’s Call Center will reach out to schedule your appointment by the next business day to ensure we provide you with the care you need without delay.

If you currently have paperless billing selected as your preference, you will automatically be converted to paperless billing for all services received after July 1.
