Yes. This is called proxy access and allows a parent (or guardian) to log in to their personal MyChart account and then connect to information regarding their family member.
If you have access to a family members’ medical records, you can view most of the information in their records in the same way that you view your own. Some things that might be particularly useful include:
- Viewing or printing your child’s immunization record
- Viewing your child’s growth charts
- Viewing a family member’s test results
If you’re a parent, you can obtain full access to your child’s health record through age 11 by completing a proxy authorization form. One month prior to your child turning 12, you will receive an email notification of the expiring 'full' access. You then have the opportunity to complete a new authorization form with signatures of both you and your child and submit it to your clinic. If you do nothing, access to your child’s medical record will switch to ‘limited.’
Adolescents ages 12-17 year old can also request access to their own account and choose to sign a proxy authorization form (each year) to grant you full access to his or her parent/s. In this case, the child would need to complete a self-authorization form for their own account and the proxy form with both parent and child signatures.
At age 18, your teen is considered an adult and may authorize any other adults to have access to their MyChart account.
Yes, although you must activate your own MyChart account.
No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must establish their own MyChart account. You may request proxy access for each other’s accounts.
To share your information or receive access to another person’s information, you must complete the appropriate proxy authorization forms which are available from any Ridgeview health care provider.
