  • Click the menu tab.
  • Scroll to "Account Settings" and select "Personal Information".  
  • Click the green button marked “Verify” to send a code to your email.

  • Enter the code into the pop-up box in MyChart to complete the process.

New Folders Streamline MyChart Messages

How you see messages in Duke MyChart is changing to make your communications faster and easier. You’ll now have multiple folders that save messages into four categories:

  • Conversations: Direct messages with medical providers
  • Bookmarked: Messages you can save for quick reference
  • Appointment: Replies to your requests for an appointment 
  • Automated messages: Appointment reminders, questionnaire notifications, and others 

When sending messages, a new system also allows you to specify if you want to ask a medical or customer service question, as well as a message category and topic. Watch a video tutorial that highlights these updates.

New App Combines MyChart, Health Resources


Duke Health has launched a new app for mobile devices that integrates Duke MyChart into a collection of other health information and offerings. My Duke Health App is available on the Google Play or the Apple App Store. Learn more about its features.

'Pay as Guest' Feature Now Available


Duke now offers the ability for a loved one or caregiver to help you pay bills in Duke MyChart without an account. Our new guest pay feature allows another person to make a safe and secure payment on behalf of a patient.

Additional Protection for Your Information


Protecting your personal health information is important to Duke, which is why we'll soon offer you a two-step verification option when logging into MyChart. Available Aug. 16, this new feature will provide extra security by using a second verification of your identity and making sure the device you're using belongs to you.

Safely Send Your Health Info to Family, Doctors

Sharing your health information securely is now easier with a new, centralized hub in Duke MyChart. It’s an expansion of the “Share Everywhere” feature that's already available in MyChart and can be accessed through the “Sharing” dropdown menu by selecting “Share My Record.”

New share functions include:

  • Friends and family access: You can give a family member or other person access to your MyChart profile to view test results, visit summaries, and more. To gain access, the person you designate must have an active MyChart account or sign up for one. They will also need to verify your birth date when prompted in MyChart.
  • Download or send your record: You can download or send visit summaries for a specific visit or range of dates, or your entire MyChart record.

You can still use previous functions, including:

Connect with Hospitals and Doctors Outside Duke

  • One-time access via Share Everywhere: On-screen instructions will guide you on how to invite an outside provider to view your information using a one-time code that is accessible for one hour.
  • Connect your accounts: You can link your accounts from across all hospitals and clinics where you’ve created different MyChart accounts. To merge them, profiles must have matching names, addresses, and birth dates.

View Device Connections

  • Review which devices or apps can see your information: Review and edit any mobile devices that have access to your MyChart account through web access or an app.

See Your X-Rays, Scans in MyChart

Digital versions of images taken at Duke Health locations can now be viewed in Duke MyChart. X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, mammograms, and other images will be available along with the written reports you’re used to viewing in our secure, online platform.

You’ll receive an email notification when the results are added to your account, typically one business day after the report is finalized with your doctor. Links to the images will appear in your visit report in MyChart. You can access them by going to the Test Results section.

This new service, which started Aug. 20, is one more way we are working to ensure continuity of care before, during, and between visits with your doctor. (Note: Images taken before Aug. 20, 2019, will not be available in MyChart.)

Now Available: Add Yourself to a Waitlist

Along with scheduling an appointment through Duke MyChart, you're now able to use the online platform to place yourself on a waitlist for follow-up or return visits, so you'll be notified in the event your provider can see you sooner.

Previously, you had to coordinate with a clinic in-person or over the phone to be added to a waitlist, but you can now do it yourself, if you're seeing a participating provider. It's an easy step that only requires you to check a box at the end of the normal MyChart scheduling process.

Follow the familiar steps to select an appointment date and time:

  • Hover over "Appts & Visits" and click "Schedule an Appointment."
  • Follow the instructions to select a provider and choose the "Follow-Up or Return Visit" box.
  • Choose your appointment date and time and confirm personal information.

Before you select the "Schedule" button at the very end of your appointment booking, you'll see a new section labeled "Before scheduling ..." Select the checkbox for "Join the waitlist and be notified if earlier appointments open up." You'll receive a MyChart message if there's an opportunity to see your provider sooner.
