No time to go to the clinic? MyChart E-Visits are a convenient option!
Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) is now offering a new feature within its MyChart patient portal to make it more convenient for patients and families with uncomplicated medical histories to get care for some common, non-emergent conditions.
An E-Visit is online medical advice and treatment with an HCMC provider – now available 7 days a week (Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5:30 PM and weekends from 10 AM to 5:30 PM). Cough/colds, allergies, diarrhea, heartburn, red eye, sinus problems, urinary problems and vaginal discharge/irritation are some of the non-emergent conditions that can be treated by a provider via E-Visit.
To sign up for the E-Visit, the patient must:
- Have been seen at HCMC within the past 3 years
- Not have been seen at HCMC for the same condition or symptoms within 7 days of the E-Visit
- Be at least 18 months old
- Not be pregnant or breast-feeding
E-Visits can be requested through HCMC’s MyChart system. For more information, go to hcmc.org and take the E-Visit link.
