Denver Health patient using MyChart

We recently asked some of the team members at Denver Health's nine family health centers to give us a list of the most common reasons patients call the clinic. At the top of that list is wanting to speak with their doctor or provider about a health issue or ask follow-up questions from a recent visit.

In most cases, there is a much simpler and more convenient way to get in touch with your provider – anytime, anywhere. MyChart, a virtual patient portal, makes it easy to manage your health care journey at Denver Health, including giving you direct access to your provider, by sending them a message through the free mobile app. Here's how to do it.

Sign Up For MyChart

  • There are three ways that you can sign up for MyChart:
    • Online
    • Call 303-602-4380
    • At a Denver Health facility by asking a staff member to help you sign up
  • To sign up, use your activation code, which can be found on your enrollment letter, bill or the last page of your visit summary (If you do not have an activation code or your code no longer works, go to and click on “Request Online”)
  • Once you are signed up for MyChart, you can download the free app for your mobile device. You can then send and receive messages from your doctor – on the go or from the comfort of your own home
