MyChart is our new patient portal for all your Carson Tahoe Health & Carson Tahoe Medical Group needs. MyChart acts as a gateway to your complete health record. The secure online platform gives you convenient, 24-hour access to personal health information and can act as a quick resource for you and your provider assuring the best possible care experience. Having your medical information right at your fingertips puts YOU in control of your health. You will receive an activation code at the time of scheduling and when you check-in at a clinic. You may receive an activation code for MyChart as part of your discharge paperwork from primary care, urgent care, or any hospital visit. You can use one MyChart login to manage your health records for all providers that use Epic & MyChart. After you have activated your Carson Tahoe MyChart account, you can link other existing MyChart accounts you may have. Our support number (775) 445-6403 is available Monday - Friday (excluding holidays) from 6 AM - 8 PM and on weekends from 8 AM - 8 PM.

Please note: Although MyChart replaced our three existing patient portals (Follow My Health, CTMG, and CTC), your old data is available through Medical Records. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may cause. Each patient portal was run through a different platform, so old data did not automatically transfer over. We recognize the importance of accessing your historical medical information, though, so please contact Medical Records and they'd be happy to assist you.

MyChart FAQ

Patient Transparency:

Carson Tahoe Health believes in patient information transparency, and we believe you deserve to see your information as soon as it's available. We will release ALL notes and results immediately to you so you may see some results even before your primary care provider. Please give your primary care provider two business days to review and let you know their thoughts.

The following will now be provided to you:

Lab and Imaging Results

  • Most are already immediately released.
  • Some studies may be delayed.
  • Common “minor abnormals” to expect:
    • There are many results like “MCHC” and “MCV” that may show abnormal but are not clinically important. There are other results, like “ANA” that are challenging to interpret and require reviewing other results and other information from your chart. Sometimes these are best discussed in person.
    • Knowing all this, if you still have an immediate concern, you can send us a message or call our clinic to discuss. Otherwise, we would prefer that we discuss this at your next appointment.
  • Radiology Studies:
    • CT scan, MRI, and PET reports can show new or re-occurring cancer.
    • These reports can also contain words that are hard to understand.
    • These reports can also show unexpected results.
    • We ALWAYS plan to review these results with you and decide on a plan together. We prefer to do this either in person, by video visit, or by phone.
    • When possible, we will discuss the possible results with you BEFORE getting the test, and the next steps we would take with each result.
    • Some patients prefer to see their results online immediately and other patients may feel more comfortable waiting to discuss results when their provider is available at their next visit. As the patient, you can choose when to view your result.

Inpatient Notes

  • All inpatient notes will be immediately released to MyChart upon completion. This includes history and physical, procedure, progress, consultation, therapy, nursing, and discharge notes.
  • We believe that sharing our medical progress notes with you helps us take better care of you and helps us to be a better team.
  • We ask for your patience and understanding as we share notes with you.
  • The most important document of your hospital stay is the Discharge Summary that will be available to you a few days after you leave the hospital. This summarizes your entire hospital stay.
  • If you have questions or concerns about what you read, providers are happy to discuss them with you the next time they complete their rounds.
