IN THE NEWS:

UPMC Launches
MyChart Bedside App
Patients at UPMC Pinnacle
Hospitals Can Now Access
Their Health Information
and Educational Tips
From Their Hospital Bed
HARRISBURG, Pa. (Oct. 14, 2020) - All UPMC hospitals
in south-central Pennsylvania now provide MyChart Bedside
to their patients, which provides instant access to health
information and educational benefits about their condition on a
tablet or mobile application.
Using MyChart Bedside, patients can view their labs, test
results, vital signs, medications, prescription refill requests and
upcoming hospital schedule and appointments. Patients may
also learn about their medical condition and medications, record
important information, send messages to their nurses and doctors
and learn more about the hospital's medical team.
" MyChart Bedside will help to inform and empower
patients by allowing them to review their medical information
throughout their hospital stay, " said Salim Saiyed, M.D., vice
president and system chief medical information officer, UPMC
Pinnacle. " UPMC Pinnacle staff are always readily available to

answer questions, but our patients have appreciated the app's
added convenience. It's just another step in providing enhanced
information and communication for our patients. "
All clinical information or notes obtained during the hospital
stay on MyChart Bedside are stored on the patients' personal
electronic health record for further use.
Evidence shows patients who are more informed and engaged
in their care are more likely to experience better outcomes,
lower costs and increased patient satisfaction. While the existing
MyPinnacleHealth patient portal gives patients access to their
medical information after office visits, MyChart Bedside brings
this service to hospitalized patients.
MyChart Bedside is available to patients at UPMC Carlisle,
UPMC Hanover, UPMC Lititz, UPMC Memorial, UPMC
Pinnacle Community Osteopathic, UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg
and UPMC Pinnacle West Shore.
