How to Use MyCHP

MyCHP is a free, secure online patient portal from UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. It makes it convenient for you to access and manage your child's health care information 24/7.

To manage your child's UPMC Children's Hospital care, request MyCHP proxy access. Use the links below or talk with your child's care team at their next visit.

Having a Video Visit

    • To attend using a mobile/tablet device, login to MyCHP using the UPMC Childrens app.

  3. Click Join Now, verify your system settings, then click Join Meeting.
    • You can join these video visits up to 30 minutes prior to the appointment.

Please know that just like a regular visit, the provider may not join right at the scheduled time of the appointment, but they will join as soon as they can. Need help? Contact our 24/7 technical support team at 1-877-621-8014.

*Tips for a successful video visit:

  • Make sure your device is fully charged and has a strong internet connection.
  • Avoid an area that is too bright/dark. Pick a space with a plain background that is private and safe (e.g. do not drive during the appointment).
  • Patient should be present and wearing loose-fitting clothing in case the health care team would like to look at an incision/body part.
  • Use the largest screen you have available - a laptop or tablet is preferred over phone. Keep the device at eye level.
