Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need two patient portals to manage my child’s care?

UPMC’s patient portals each have different features to help you manage and access your child’s care 24/7. MyCHP is for inpatient and outpatient visits with UPMC Children’s Hospital specialists. MyUPMC is primarily used for pre-registrations, notifications for sooner appointments, and care received at UPMC Children’s Community Pediatrics and UPMC Children’s Express Care.
