Terms and Conditions

This web site (“Site”) and related services are provided by Bend Memorial Clinic to its patients subject to compliance with the terms and conditions set forth below. Please read the following information carefully. Your continued use of this Site will indicate your agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth below. If you do not agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, promptly exit this Site.

I.Privacy

Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. Bend Memorial Clinic will use your confidential medical information in order to provide you health care services. Bend Memorial Clinic will, at all times, maintain the privacy of your confidential medical information and will not disclose medical information about you unless you authorize the disclosure of your information or the disclosure of the information is permitted by law. Please review Bend Memorial Clinic Notice of Privacy Practices for a thorough description of how we gather, use and protect your confidential medical information. All messages sent and received within MyChart that contain medical information are subject to state and federal laws governing the security and confidentiality of medical records.

II. MyChart Features

A. Electronic Messaging

MyChart should never be used for urgent matters. The anticipated turnaround time for response to electronic messages is three business days. If you believe you are experiencing an urgent or life threatening health condition, please call your physician’s office, go to an emergency room of a local hospital or dial 911.

If your provider is out of the office or unavailable, messages sent via MyChart may be routed to other authorized caregivers within Bend Memorial Clinic in order to facilitate a timely response to your request.

Bend Memorial Clinic may send you messages via MyChart. It is your responsibility to monitor these messages and respond in an appropriate manner.

B. Secure Communications

All communications between you and Bend Memorial Clinic using MyChart occur over a secure connection. You are required to provide Bend Memorial Clinic providers a valid e-mail address and it is your responsibility to keep this address updated if you change your e-mail account. You will receive Internet e-mail messages notifying you that new information is available in your MyChart account. Although these e-mail messages will not contain any confidential medical information, the notification that new information is available by accessing MyChart may be information that you would not want others to know. Please take this into account when providing an e-mail address or using MyChart. All of the confidential medical information available to you in MyChart is protected and securely maintained by Bend Memorial Clinic.

C. Activation Code

When you initially enroll in MyChart, you will be provided with an activation code. The activation code you receive will give you the opportunity to create a personal login name (called MyChart ID) and a password. Once this activation code has been used it will no longer be valid.

It is extremely important that you keep your login name and password completely confidential. Anyone with access to your login name and password will be able to access your confidential medical information. That person will also be able to read your messages and send new messages as if that person were you. It is your responsibility to prevent disclosure of your login and password, and to change your password if you feel that its security has been compromised. You may change your password at any time.

D. Features

At this time, Bend Memorial Clinic anticipates that the MyChart web portal will provide the following services:

  • Ability to review, request or cancel your appointments
  • Ability to view selected portions of your medical record such as allergies, medications, histories, problem list and recent visit information
  • Ability to receive selected lab results
  • Ability to communicate with your health care provider via secure messaging regarding health concerns

IV. Termination of Access
