Parkview MyChart and MyChart Bedside work together to provide patients and caregivers with a comprehensive story of care. Each tool offers a unique set of features designed for the inpatient setting (MyChart Bedside) and the outpatient setting (Parkview MyChart). All care information is conveniently and securely stored in your Parkview MyChart account and can be accessed using the provided bedside tablet or your personal mobile device.

While you can plan for some, unplanned hospital stays can occur and often lead to an increase in anxiety, stress and confusion. MyChart Bedside allows you to communicate directly with your care team and provides you with detailed information throughout your stay, from admittance to discharge.

MyChart Bedside looks slightly different but offers the same easy-to-use experience that you may be familiar with Parkview MyChart. The tool also provides you with basic information such as what you are being treated for while you're in the hospital you’re in the hospital, when you arrived and your expected discharge date.
