Frequently Asked Questions
What is the My Mercy Health mobile app?
The My Mercy Health mobile app is designed to give you access to your health care — including your medical record, doctors, appointments (upcoming and past), billing and more — in one easy place.
The app brings together all of the patient portal functionality that exists today through MyChart and marries it with additional features and capabilities that allows you to manage your health, wellness and access in a streamlined and connected experience.
What is the difference between MyChart and My Mercy Health? Do I need a MyChart account to use the My Mercy Health mobile app?
MyChart is a secure portal that allows self-service access to your Mercy Health medical record. In the My Mercy Health mobile app, we’ve combined the same features from MyChart with additional services and resources to give you more a personalized and robust health care experience at your fingertips.
In order to use the My Mercy Health app to its full potential, you must create and/or sign in with a MyChart username and password. This is only required one time to link your Mercy Health patient record to your app account.
If you are not yet a Mercy Health patient, or simply do not want to link your medical record, you can still use the My Mercy Health app to browse doctors and locations, get on-demand care, and view and save health resources.
What Kind of Care / Appointments Can I Schedule?
If you are scheduling with your existing Mercy Health primary care provider in the My Mercy Health app, the following appointments are available for booking:
- Annual Physicals, Medicare Annual Wellness Visits, or Pap Smears
- In-person and virtual Oﬃce Visits for new problems and existing condition follow-ups
- Pre-Operative Exams
- Emergency Department Follow-Up Visits
If you are looking for a new Mercy Health primary care provider, you can schedule in-person and virtual New Patient Visits.
Who Do I Contact for Technical Support?
If you are experiencing issues in the My Mercy Health app that don’t resolve themselves (some issues may be due to poor internet connectivity and will resolve when your phone has more bars), please contact our Help Desk at: 855-460-1534 or submit a support request from within the app.
What credentials should I use to sign in to the app?
Since the My Mercy Health app is different from MyChart, you will need to create a new account to get started.
You’ll provide your email address as your username and set a password during account creation.
Each time you return to the app, you’ll use these credentials to sign in.
If you are an existing patient, once you’ve created an account and signed in to the My Mercy Health mobile app, you will only have to enter your MyChart username and password one time, where prompted.
If you become a patient after downloading the app, you’ll follow this same process once you have a Mercy Health patient record to connect to the app.
Once you’ve created your My Mercy Health account, you can enable facial/touch recognition to bypass entering your credentials and a security code each time you sign in.
What if my name and/or address changed recently?
It’s important that you use the same demographic information as it exists in your medical record so that the app can match your account with your patient record. Anytime your name or address changes, you will need to update your medical record. This can be done over the phone or in-person at your doctor’s office.
If the information you entered during registration for the app doesn’t result in a patient match and you expect it to, you can check and update these demographic details within My Profile under the Account section.
