Getting your Health data out of MyChart to your HealthVault record

Some have asked how do I get my data from my doctor to my HealthVault record... here is the first of hopefully many: out of Epic's MyChart to HealthVault.


Once logged in to your MyChart account click on My Medical Records

  Click on Download Summary

 Click Download.  Save the file to your computer

 To extract the needed CCD/CCR open the downloaded .zip file 

Click on the MachineReadable_XDMFormat folder (note these folder might not be exactly named the same)

 Select the IHE_XDM directory

Open the next folder; more than likely named with your name

And select and copy out the DOC0001.xml file



To upload to HealthVault.  Log into your HealthVault account at In the upper right corner select I want to.  And select Add or update health information



Then click on More actions and select Upload a file

Select you .xml that you saved

    This doesn't work.  I get the following error trying to upload the DOC0001.xml file.

    We couldn't complete your last action because:

    There is a problem with the way the file is constructed. Please ask the provider to correct it and give you a new copy.

    The following information may be useful to your provider in identifying the problem:

    Invalid xml for thing of type '9c48a2b8-952c-4f5a-935d-f3292326bf54' (Continuity of Care Document (CCD)). The 'code' attribute is invalid – The value 'NO PREFERENC' is invalid according to its datatype 'urn:hl7-org:v3:cs' – The Pattern constraint failed. — The 'code' attribute is invalid – The value 'NO PREFERENC' is invalid according to its datatype 'urn:hl7-org:v3:cs' – The Pattern constraint failed.

    I've yet to be able to leverage any of my information in HealthVault.

    I tried this and it doesn't work for me either. The menu has been updated too, so these instructions no longer apply.

  3. Kathy says:

    Tyler & Nicholas, edit the XML file so that where you see "NO PREFERENC" you change to "NO_PREFERENC". The format doesn't allow an empty space as a valid character. Then you should be able to add the document to HealthVault.

    Health Vault has changed it's layout since this was originally posted. Any idea of where to upload the file now?

  5. Pete says:

    At the very top of the screen, click on the Add button (plus sign inside circle) and then look in the Documents section and choose File.

  6. Avi says:

    @Pete was close – click on the Add button and then choose continuity of care documents.  Once the documents are loaded you'll have an option to "Add items to healthvault".
