One of the features of MyChart is Proxy Access. Obtaining access to another persons’ UHS MyChart account that is NOT their own is called Proxy Access. Proxy Access is NOT the same as a Health Care Proxy.
When is Proxy Access used?
Proxy access is used to give parents access to their children's accounts
To give a husband or wife access to their spouse's account
To give caregivers access to the accounts of those for whom they care for (mom, dad, other).
What type of access do you need?
For My Child under 18 Years Old
If a minor patient is between 0 – 11, parents/legal guardians will be granted FULL access to the minor’s MyChart account.
If a minor patient is between the ages of 12 – 18, parents/legal guardians will be granted LIMITED access to the minor’s MyChart account. With limited access, parents/legal guardians can request appointments, view immunization records, and send messages on the minor’s MyChart account.
Once a minor reaches 18 years of age, parents/legal guardians will no longer have access to the patient’s MyChart account unless the patient consents to access. Parents/legal guardians will LOSE ALL ACCESS.
If a minor patient is emancipated, parents/legal guardians will NOT have proxy access unless they are granted proxy through the Proxy Access for Adult to Adult.
