Training information

To ensure all MiChart users are familiar with the changes to the system, everyone is asked to take the MiChart Upgrade eLearning prior to go-live. The eLearning course has been automatically assigned to all Michigan Medicine employees who have logged into MiChart over the last year.*

To access the course, simply visit the “My Learning Plan” section of MLearning and select the course. The eLearning has been assigned according to specific roles and is expected to take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Note: Users can access role-specific tip sheets and the MiChart Practice Environment for more information.

Town hall presentations

Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) and its partners will provide an opportunity for inpatient MiChart users to get further information about the MiChart upgrade during the following town hall presentations. Since many Michigan Medicine employees will be unable to attend these meetings, please visit the MiChart Upgrade page for the most up-to-date information.
