How soon are test results posted to MyChart?

The type of test results you are waiting for can determine how long they might take to be posted on MyChart, Premier Health’s online patient portal, according to the Premier Physician Network physicians.

Depending on the type of results, they should be available in the following timeframes:

  • For outpatient visits – results of blood work and other lab tests are released to your account within 72 hours of being finalized
  • For outpatient/office visits – results of X-rays and imaging tests are released to your account within five days of being finalized. Allow one hour after discharge for these types of results from a hospital visit
  • For imaging studies – results will be only the interpreting physician’s impression of the study, which is a summary of the results. Your primary care provider will receive a detailed interpretation and will be able to review that with you
  • Pathology – with the exception of pap smears, pathology results are not automatically released to MyChart

If one week after having a test you have not seen the results on your MyChart account, contact the office that ordered the test to discuss the results.

For more information about MyChart and when you can expect test results to be available, talk with your physician.
