This means that any person with access to my e-mail will be able to see this notification. This could include my spouse, dependent, employer or anyone else that can access my email account. Although no private medical information will be included in the e-mail, the notification that new medical information is available by accessing Jefferson Health MyChart may be information that I would not want others to know.
