About the upgrade: 

The Fall upgrade will include updates, system maintenance and new features to the MiChart application. The newest upgrade will enable some key changes and enhancements, including: 

  • New In Basket redesign with an updated look to make it more intuitive and add features. More details can be seen within the It’s Possible… In Basket Overview video. 
  • New Behavioral Health module to support the unique workflows of behavioral health users and efficiently meet regulatory requirements within MiChart. 
  • New Genomics module that can create actionable Genomic and Germline indicators, while also offering reporting data.
  • Changes to Secure Chat availability statuses.
  • Updated Status Board and new Procedural Narrator in OR and Procedural areas 

Due to an Epic recommendation, Michigan Medicine will delay changes to registration screens and workflows and continue to evaluate implementation for “Book It” for appointment scheduling.
