    • MyChart For My Family
    • Collapse All Expand All
      • Can I view a family member’s health record in MyChart?
      • Yes. This is called proxy access. Proxy access allows a parent, guardian or designee to login to his or her own personal MyChart account and connect to information regarding the family member. Proxy access can be used to view health records for children and adult patients. Complete the appropriate Proxy/Authorization form(s) and return it to your participating MyChart doctor's office or Memorial Healthcare System's Health Information Management (HIM) Department within the hospital to request access to this convenient service. You can obtain the proxy consent forms in the upper left corner of the screen under Proxy Consent Forms.

        The rules for accessing a child’s account change on the child’s 13th birthday. This change occurs because state and federal law protect the privacy of pediatric patients seeking medical treatment for pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease, substance abuse, and mental health issues. Memorial MyChart is available to the teenager’s themselves age 13 through 17. In order for a parent or legal guardian to access a teenager’s MyChart health information, the teenager must consent to the disclosure. Teen MyChart Access is available only to teens who grant consent to a parent or legal guardian. A teen may revoke this consent at any time. Teen MyChart Access expires at age 18. On your teen’s 18th birthday, the Parent Proxy view will be terminated automatically.

      • Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my MyChart account?
      • The proper way to talk to a provider about a family member is by using the proxy access feature of MyChart.

      • Can my spouse and I share one MyChart account?
      • No. Due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must sign and submit proxy consent forms and establish his or her own MyChart account. Please click on the link in the upper left corner of the Memorial MyChart home page to download the appropriate proxy form.
