How do I sign up?

Patients who wish to participate will be issued a MyCare activation code during their clinic visit. This code will enable you to log in and create your own username and password. If you were not issued an activation code, you may call your primary care clinic to get one or ask to sign up during your next office visit.

If you did not receive an activation code, visit the Health Records Desk at YRMC and bring photo I.D. or call 928-336-7017 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday.

You may e-mail us at MyCare@Yumaregional.org.

When can I see my test results in MyCare?

Your test results are released to your MyCare account the day after they have been finalized in our system. This is generally within 1-3 days.

Return to Top

Why are certain test results not shared electronically via MyCare?

Your provider is able to determine which types of test results are able to be accessed through MyCare. Further, tests of a very sensitive nature are not released to MyCare. We do not currently allow for the viewing of imaging results in MyCare at this time.

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

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

If I send a message to my doctor or nurse, when can I expect a reply?

You will generally receive an answer within 1-3 business days. Please note that MyCare should not be used for urgent situations. Please contact your medical center if the situation requires immediate attention or dial 911 if it is an emergency.

Can I view a family member's health record in MyCare?

Yes you can. This is called Proxy access and allows a parent (or guardian) to log into their personal MyCare account, and then connect to information regarding their family member. Complete a Proxy Consent Form and return it to one of our medical facilities to request access to this convenient service.

Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my MyCare account?

MyCare offers direct access to your personal health record and communicating about another individual's information would be placed in your health record. This information would not appear in the correct health record and could potentially jeopardize medical care.

Can my spouse and I share one MyCare account?

No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must sign and submit a Release of Information request and establish their own MyCare account. You can request proxy access to a patient if you need to view their information as well.

I forgot my password. What should I do?

You may contact our MyCare Patient Support email at MyCare@Yumaregional.org to request a new, secure password. You may also click the "Forgot password" link on the sign-in page to reset your password online. Please note that the password reset link will be sent to the email account you have on file in your medical record. If you do not have an email address in your mediacl record you can contact Patient Registration at (928)336-7011 to update.

Can you send me a new activation code as I have lost it, let it expire or did not receive it?

Where can I update my personal information (e.g., home address, e-mail or change my password)?

How is MyCare secure?

We take great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. Access to information is controlled through secure activation codes, personal usernames, and passwords. Each person controls their password, and the account cannot be accessed without that password. Further, MyCare uses the latest 128-bit SSL encryption technology with no caching to automatically encrypt your session with MyCare. Unlike conventional e-mail, all MyCare messaging is done while you are securely logged on to our website.

What is your Privacy Policy?

MyCare is owned and operated by MyCare and is fully compliant with federal and state laws pertaining to your privacy. Your name and e-mail address will be treated with the same care and privacy given your health records and will never be sold or leased by MyCare.

I was logged out of MyCare, what happened?

We aim to protect your privacy and security of your information. While logged into MyCare, if your keyboard remains idle for 15 minutes or more, you will be automatically logged out of MyCare. We recommend that you log out of your MyCare session if you need to leave your computer for even a short period of time.

What do I need to use MyCare?

You need access to a computer connected to the Internet and an up-to-date browser (such as Internet Explorer). We also support the MyCare mobile app you can use right from your phone. You can even sign up for MyCare on the Mobile App!
