January 15, 2024  By: Caitlin Pallai


Essentia Health-Mid Dakota Clinics in Bismarck are transitioning to a new electronic health record platform — Epic — in January 2024.

With this change, Essentia patients in Bismarck will now have access to MyChart. Powered by Epic, MyChart is a secure web-based or mobile application that provides convenient, 24/7 access to your personal health information, as well as the ability to schedule appointments and interact with your care team.

MyChart will make it easier for Essentia's Bismarck patients to coordinate their care and medical records across all Essentia facilities in North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

With MyChart, you can:

  • Schedule appointments with your primary care provider.
  • Connect with your provider via secure Virtual Video Visit.
  • Connect with an urgent care provider without leaving your home via secure 24/7 Video Visits On Demand.
  • Request prescription refills.
  • Review notes from your appointments.
  • See test results.
  • Access immunization records.
  • Request and view your medical records.
  • Apply for financial assistance.

"The transition to Epic enhances the patient experience with Essentia Health, not only in Bismarck, but to specialists throughout our health system," said Rachel Lawlor, vice president of clinic operations at Essentia Health-Mid Dakota Clinic. "The MyChart portal empowers individuals with access to their personal health information and fosters a proactive approach to well-being. New and established patients in the Bismarck area are encouraged to create their own MyChart account. The benefits of this transition will be shared by physicians, staff and our patients."

Patients can create a MyChart account online by visiting or by downloading the MyChart app via the App Store or Google Play. Learn more at
