Proxy access

  • Families and caregivers provide essential support when it comes to managing healthcare. With MyChart proxy access, you can securely access the medical records of a child, spouse or others you assist with healthcare needs.

    For privacy and patient safety, please take time to set up proxy access – rather than share passcodes with family members.

    To gain proxy access for a minor patient, please submit a request for proxy access to a minor’s chart.

    Adult patients can grant proxy access to their family member or caregiver by visiting the Sharing Hub in MyChart: Give friends and family access.

  • You must have proxy access to view another patient’s MyChart information. It ensures the other patient has provided appropriate permissions and helps protect the security of their information.

    To request access to your child’s account, go to Request Access to Minor’s Chart under the Menu tab. Full proxy access is available for minors ages 0-13, while limited proxy access is available for minors ages 14-17.

    Patients 18 and older must grant proxy access to family members, caregivers or loved ones. To give someone proxy access, navigate to the Sharing Hub in MyChart and select Friends and Family Access. The Sharing Hub allows adult patients to give or revoke proxy access.

  • Using MyChart’s Sharing Hub, you can grant loved ones, family members or caregivers access to your health record. Navigate to the Sharing Hub from the main menu and select Friends and Family Access. Follow the prompts to invite someone to access your record. Patients 18 and older can give or revoke access to family members or other caregivers.

Security features

  • Yes. We take great care to protect your privacy and safety. MyChart uses the latest encryption technology. It is fully compliant with federal and state laws governing privacy. We handle your name and email address with the same care as your health records. We will never sell or lease your information to anyone.

    We also offer 2-factor authentication, which adds another layer of security. You can choose whether to use this feature, which sends you an extra entry code by text or email each time you log in.

  • You can better promote security by setting up 2-step verification. When you have this security feature turned on, you will receive a passcode via text or email for verification during login. Additionally, 2-step verification helps to better protect the accounts of your friends and loved ones for whom you have proxy access.

    We recommend using 2-step authentication for the best security and information protection. You can enable or disable the 2-step verification feature in Account Settings.

  • When using your MyChart app, a secondary login allows you to use a passcode or biometric login (fingerprint or facial recognition) instead of your MyChart username and password. Secondary methods, such as fingerprint authentication, facial recognition and passcode or PIN, can make logging in quicker and easier.

  • Download the most up-to-date version of the MyChart app. Go to Account Settings and follow the prompts to enable or disable secondary login features.

  • If you enter the wrong PIN or try to log in with a different fingerprint or face scan, secondary login will be disabled for the entire device. After 5 failed login attempts, you must enter your full MyChart password to log in.
