MyHealth Terms and Conditions

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE.

Introduction
“MyHealth” is an Internet application that enables a patient (“you” or “your”) to have secure web-based access to portions of their electronic medical record at St. Mary.  For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, MyHealth includes the MyHealth web site and all relevant parts and components thereto.  MyHealth is not an attempt to practice medicine or provide specific medical advice and should not be used as a substitute for the advice of your personal physician or other qualified health care provider.  Neither MyHealth nor any other application available through MyHealth is a substitute for appropriate and timely contact with your physician.  MyHealth is not a substitute for consultation with your physician.  You should never change or stop any course of treatment prescribed by your physician without first consulting him or her. 

You should not rely upon MyHealth if you have immediate, urgent or life-threatening health concerns or questions,
but should instead seek appropriate emergency medical assistance, such as calling your doctor or 911.
