Access Your Family’s Medical Records
Access to a child’s or adult’s MyChart account can be granted to individuals who have authority to view that individual’s medical information. A proxy consent form must be completed in order to request proxy access.
- Under the age of 12: Parents/guardians will have full access to all aspects of the child’s MyChart account, including appointments, medications, test results and more.
- Ages 12-18: If the parents/guardians previously had access to the minor’s account, they will be defaulted to demographics updates only of their minor’s account. This will occur on the minor’s birthday. The parent/guardian will have the option to receive full access at the child’s consent. This consent will need to be renewed each year on the day of or after the minor’s birthday. This minor will have full access to their own records through MyChart.
