New Electronic Health Record (EHR) Platform

New EHR offers upgraded online patient portal, access to providers, enhanced security

On August 19, 2019, UC San Diego’s Student Health & Well-being completed a migration onto Epic — the country’s leading electronic health record (EHR) system currently in use by UC San Diego Health.

This transition provides patients of Student Health Services (SHS) and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) with enriched connectivity and access to health care resources no matter where they are, whether on- or off-campus.

Convenience and peace-of-mind

With the MyStudentChart patient portal and mobile app, you are able to request appointments online, message providers, view test results, request prescription refills, and in the coming months, schedule online or tele-visits.

As part of the migration, there are superior protection and security measures in place to safeguard access to your private and confidential medical and mental health information.

Activate your account

To access the new system, please visit https://mystudentchart.ucsd.edu and follow the instructions to activate a MyStudentChart account with your UC San Diego AD/ student email log in.


Prior to the migration, UC San Diego’s SHS and CAPS used a separate EHR system from UC San Diego Health’s hospitals and specialty clinics to document patient care.

By transitioning to Epic, it is now easier to access resources of the region’s only academic medical center, enhancing the outstanding clinical and mental health services provided to UC San Diego students.

Privacy standards

It is of utmost importance that disclosures of health information by SHS and CAPS providers are in accordance with student preference, Federal and State laws, and ethical standards.
