I had a test a week ago but I don't see the results. Why?

Test results are automatically released at various intervals to MyChart, once they become final. Generally, lab results will be available 72 hours of becoming final for outpatient/office visits. Finalized lab results are released one hour after discharge for hospital visits.

Imaging or X-ray studies will be available in 5 days for outpatient/office visits and one hour after discharge for finalized results. It may take several days or even weeks for certain tests to be resulted and become final.

Pathology results (except for pap smears) are not released automatically to MyChart.

If you feel that your test results should be available but you don't see them in MyChart, it is best to call the office of the practitioner who ordered the test, to discuss the test results.

For tests that were conducted during a hospital visit, please contact the health information (medical records) department to have that information released to you.
