When can I see my test results in MyChart?

For all tests conducted at UVA after 9/28/2010, your test results are released to your MyChart account after the result has been finalized by the lab and your provider has reviewed them except if they are excluded by law or Medical Center policy.
Labs that were collected during admissions will be released to MyChart upon discharge.
Labs collected during clinic visits will be released to MyChart 3 days after the results have been reviewed by your provider.
Imaging results, including those from Cardiology and Radiology, will be released 7 days after the results have been reviewed by your provider.
Pathology reports will be released to MyChart 14 days after the results have been reviewed by your provider.
If you are expecting lab results to appear in your MyChart and they have not appeared yet, please use the Get Medical Advice tool in MyChart to message the clinic.

Why are certain test results not shared electronically via MyChart?

Your provider determines which test results are able to be accessed through MyChart. Tests of a very sensitive nature are not released to MyChart according to Virginia law.

If some of my health information on MyChart is not correct, what should I do?

Your MyChart information comes directly from your electronic medical record at your provider's office. Ask your provider to correct any inaccurate information at your next clinic visit. Your information is reviewed and updated each visit.
