MyChart Proxy Access Instructions

MyChart is a useful tool that helps patients manage their own health care and it can also help caregivers support the care of another person. When someone accesses the MyChart account of another patient they are doing so as their “proxy,” and this kind of access is called “proxy access.” 

Users obtain MyChart proxy access (a) by demonstrating that they have a legal right to access the patient’s information, or (b) when an adult patient grants them such access. For more information regarding MyChart, please visit our Terms of Use

For Children Under the Age of 18

In order to set up proxy access for a child's MyChart account, you must first have your own MyChart account. If you need a MyChart account, please sign up online.  

To set up proxy access to your child’s MyChart account, please submit the request directly from your MyChart account.

  1. Access the Menu > Proxy Request Forms
  2. Review the information regarding proxy access
  3. Submit the “Minor” proxy request form. 

Please allow one business day to complete the request. Your proxy access to your child’s MyChart account will appear in "My Family's Records" the next time you log in to MyChart. 

For an Adult

Adult patients can grant other adults proxy access to their MyChart accounts. Proxies must have their own MyChart account and can sign up online.

To give someone else proxy access to your account, please submit the request directly from your MyChart account.

  1. Go to Your Menu  > Share My Record 
  2. Under Who Can See My Record?, click Invite Someone
  3. Follow the instructions to send an email invitation to the person who you'd like to have access to your MyChart account. That person will need to accept the invitation and confirm that they know your date of birth.

Once access is granted, access to your medical record will appear in the proxy section of your proxy's MyChart account.

NOTE: If the patient is unable to use MyChart to follow the steps listed above, please call (208) 381-9000 for assistance.
