At Jefferson Health, we know that staying informed and engaged improves the recovery process. That’s why we’ve created the MyChart Bedside – a 24/7 tool that provides you with safe and secure access to your medical record, treatment plan, tests results and more – while you’re in the hospital.

The free service allows you or your designated family member track your progress, quickly, easily and conveniently.

How to Get Started

Ask your nurse or care team to provide you or your family member with a Jefferson MyChart Bedside iPad. You will be prompted to do the following:

  • Sign the patient agreement your care team gives you
  • Turn on the power button, located on the top of the iPad
  • Log in
  • Add a passcode you create for personal security
