Important Update About Hoag Orthopedic Institute's Patient Portal

Download the app:


Hoag Orthopedic Institute launched a new patient portal, MyChart, with enhanced features that make managing your health more comprehensive and interactive.

Once your account is activated with MyChart, you can do the following:

  • View your medical information online for discharged patients for Hoag Orthopedic Institute visits after April 29, 2018.
    • Review your medications, immunizations, allergies and medical history.
    • Receive most tests results for tests performed at Hoag, including lab work and imaging.
    • Review after-visit summaries and care instructions pertaining to your hospital stay at Hoag Orthopedic Institute for visits after April 29, 2018.
  • Communicate with your doctor & health care team related to your hospital visit in a secure environment.

  • Access your family's patient records via proxy.
    • Family members can link accounts for convenient access to appointments, discharge care instructions, and more.
  • Pay your bills online.

Our previous patient portal solution through FollowMyHealth, will still be available to access your medical records for any visits made from January 1, 2016 to April 29, 2018.

Your health information and privacy are protected

Only you (or an approved proxy), your provider and your health care team are permitted to view the information sent through MyChart. We use the latest security practices and safeguards to protect your health care information. MyChart is password-protected and delivered via an encrypted connection.
