Your test results are released to your Bayfront Health MyChart account after your physician has reviewed them. This is generally within 1-2 days.
Why are certain test results not shared electronically via Bayfront Health MyChart?
Your provider is able to determine which types of test results can be accessed through Bayfront Health MyChart. Further, tests of a very sensitive nature are not released.
If some of my health information on Bayfront Health MyChart is not correct, what should I do?
Your Bayfront Health MyChart information comes directly from your electronic medical record at your doctor's office. Ask your doctor to correct any inaccurate information at your next clinic visit. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your electronic medical record each visit. You may also submit a chart correction request to have the information reviewed by our Health Information Management team (Medical Records) within MyChart.
Will any of the clinical information from my CareNotify™ portal be available in MyChart?
Yes, we are in the process of adding your past information into our new electronic health record. When this process is complete, you will be able to view your Results from 2018* forward in MyChart. In addition, your previous Health Issues, Allergies, Medications and Immunizations will be transferred but will need to be reviewed with your healthcare provider on your next visit before being available for you to view in your MyChart.
*Certain Results prior to 2018 may be available.
Where can I update my personal information (e.g., home address, e-mail or change my password)?
Log in to Bayfront Health MyChart and from the left menu, go to the "Preferences" section and select the appropriate option.
Can I view a family member's health record in Bayfront Health MyChart?
Yes, you can. This is called proxy access and allows a patient to log in to their personal Bayfront Health MyChart account and then grant access to a family member. To do this, the patient needs to log into their Bayfront Health MyChart account and search for “Share My Record.” From there they will select “Friends and Family Access” to add you. A second way to get proxy access is for a patient and family member to complete a Proxy Authorization form and return it to one of our medical facilities.
Will I be able to see all of my child's info once I have proxy access to my child's account?
The proxy access you have will change based on the age of your child.
- Birth - 11-years-old: You will have full access.
- 12 - 17-years-old: Your proxy access will continue but the system will automatically restrict certain information to you based on Florida law.
- 18-years-old: The system will automatically remove your proxy access.
How do I get access to my child's Bayfront Health MyChart account?
There are multiple ways for you to gain proxy access to your child's Bayfront Health MyChart account.
- Option 1: If your child is 12 years of age or older and they have their own Bayfront Health MyChart account, they can grant you access from within "Friends and Family Access".
- Option 2: During the next visit for your child, you can sign the Proxy Authorization form and the team member will grant you proxy access.
- Option 3: You can download the Proxy Authorization form and send the completed form and photo identification to MyChartSupport@BayfrontStPete.com
Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my Bayfront Health MyChart account?
No, you cannot ask through your own account, but you can message on behalf of a family member if you have proxy access to their account.
Can my spouse and I share one Bayfront Health MyChart account?
No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must establish their own Bayfront Health MyChart account. If a patient chooses to share medical information with their spouse, they can grant them proxy access.
