MyChart Bedside

Access Your Medical Records and Collaborate on Your Care

MyChart Bedside is BCH's free inpatient portal that you can use to be more involved in your care while you’re in the hospital. See what medications you’re taking, your schedule for the day and read up on your treatment. If you have questions or concerns, you can send secure messages and requests directly to the people caring for you.

NEW! MyChart Bedside is now available in the MyBCH patient portal mobile app for all BCH hospitalized patients. Patients and their proxies can access MyChart Bedside information from their MyBCH app on their personal device.
