MiChart upgrade coming Oct. 20

August 6, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The next MiChart upgrade is planned for Sunday, Oct. 20. This will be the second planned upgrade for 2019 with a goal to reduce downtime duration and impact to the organization.

The October upgrade will include updates, system maintenance and new features to the MiChart application. The most notable enhancement that will touch every MiChart user is the Storyboard, a redesigned workspace for users that replaces the Patient Header and provides quicker access to key details and common actions without switching screens. Storyboard will be a unifying feature across MiChart modules and users, telling the patient’s story in a consistent way, while also specializing the tools and information presented to the user for their role.

For more information, visit the Learn MiChart website and view the “It’s Possible” video for Storyboard. To view, users will need their Michigan Medicine (Level-2) login to access the site and video.

User Experience Labs

To prepare for new features within the upgrade, MiChart users are invited to attend Clinician User Experience Labs to test their daily workflows in a practice environment. The labs will offer the opportunity to identify the impact of changes and provide feedback to the MiChart Upgrade project team analysts and trainers.
