Maintaining the health records of children and the elderly in the family has become so much easier nowadays. All thanks to MyChart.
How to sign up for the Proxy Account?
The Proxy Account services allow a parent or a legal guardian to look over a patient’s records. One must open a MyChart account for himself/herself before becoming a proxy for another patient’s account.
To request access to the medical data in a patient’s account, one must complete the Authorization to Access a MyChart Record available at MyChart Memorial and then return to the patient’s service provider.
There are two forms on this website; one grants adult to adult account access and grants child to parent/guardian information access. If the account holder is not a patient at Memorial Hospital, then one must call at 855-UMASS-MD (855-862-7763) and get registered first for accessing as a proxy.
How much access to MyChart information does a Proxy has?
To what extent of information a proxy may get access to depends entirely on the account holder, and it may vary from person to person in different situations. One can have a proxy regarding two situations- (1) An adult becoming a proxy for another grown-up patient’s account, or (2) An adult acting as a parent/legal guardian/foster for a child/minor’s account.
Again, the access to information solely depends on the account holder, be it a child or a grown-up. In that case, to go through the legal procedures to become a proxy for someone’s account, one may get help from their service providers or medical authorities.
