myMosaic by MyChart provides you with online access to your medical record. It can help you participate in your health care and communicate with your providers.
From MyChart, you can:
- Review summaries of your previous appointments, including issues addressed during each visit, your vital signs, and tests or referrals that were ordered.
- View your medications, including dosage information and instructions and request a refill.
- View new lab results, as well as trends over time. For example, view results for your past cholesterol tests on a graph to see if you’re close to meeting your target number.

This guide provides an overview of many of MyChart’s features and how to use them.

- Viewing or printing your child’s immunization record
- Viewing your child’s growth charts
- Viewing a family member’s test results
If you’re a parent, you can have full access to your child’s record through a designated age (check with your clinic) and limited access through age 18. This section explains how to access a family member’s record and how to access growth charts and immunizations in a child’s record.
Access a family member’s record
After you’ve received permission, you can view a family member’s records by clicking the photo or name for that family member in MyChart.

- After the person you’ve invited accepts the invitation, you’ll receive a tickler message to let you know, and the Pending label is removed next to that person’s name on the Friends and Family Access page. You can return to this page at any time to edit or revoke that person’s access.
View and print your child’s immunization record
When you are in your child’s record in MyChart, go to Health > Immunizations.

You can also view the growth chart with a different unit of measure (metric or standard) by selecting the option for that unit of measure.
If you want a copy of the growth chart for your records, click the printer icon.
