Medical records? For UPMC patients, there’s an app for that

UPMC’s patients now have access to key parts of their medical records through their iPhones and iPads. The mobile HealthTrak application allows patients to see test results, review medical histories and medications, communicate securely with their doctors and view upcoming appointments.

G. Daniel Martich, chief medical information officer at UPMC, said: “We know that our patients need and want secure access to their medical records, even when they are on the go. With this mobile version of UPMC’s HealthTrak, already used by more than 62,000 patients, we can offer them a convenient and free way to manage their care.”

Before using the mobile app, patients must create a HealthTrak    account    online    at, or by requesting an access code from their physicians. This web-based portal provides patients with access to a number of functions for managing their health, many of which are included in the mobile version.

After creating an account, users then can download MyChart from Epic at no charge from the iTunes App Store and select UPMC HealthTrak as the health care provider.
