MyChart proxy access allows you to log into your personal MyChart account and view your child’s information.
Due to state and federal laws providing additional privacy rights for adolescents’ medical records, patients between 13 and 17 must sign an assent agreement granting permission for a parent to access their medical record. If a child 13 to 17 declines to sign the assent agreement, neither the patient nor the parent or guardian can access the medical record using MyChart.
Parents and legal guardians cannot have proxy access to a child’s record after he or she turns 18 unless they have proof of ongoing legal guardianship (as in cases of diminished capacity).
No. To ensure the safety of your child’s information, patients cannot share an account with a parent and parents cannot share an account. Two parents who both wish to access their child’s information must each sign and submit a Parent / Legal Guardian Agreement and create a MyChart account. If the child is age 13 to 17, he or she can have a MyChart account also; you will all see the same information. See “How do I get MyChart proxy access” for more information. If your child is under 12, you can view the information in MyChart together (as appropriate) and use MyChart as an opportunity to involve your child in his or her care.
For MyChart, proof of guardianship (a legal document signed by a judge or magistrate) is required only for legal guardians of children over 18 to maintain access to MyChart records. In the case of a child over 18 with diminished capacity, legal documentation of the child’s status will be required. If you have questions about guardianship or the acceptable forms of proof, contact Health Information Management at 513-636-4217.
No, unfortunately. Foster parents aren’t considered legal guardians, so they can’t access MyChart for children in their care.
Yes. If you have more than one child who has been treated at Cincinnati Children’s, you may get proxy access to each child’s account. If you have children age 13-17, they each will need to sign a Cincinnati Children’s assent form to grant you proxy to their MyChart accounts.
Each parent, regardless of their relationship, should have his or her own MyChart account. To do this, each parent signs a Cincinnati Children’s Parent / Legal Guardian Agreement. Your child will only have to sign one Cincinnati Children’s assent form, which covers all parents or guardians.
No. To have a MyChart account, a patient age 13 to 17 (who is not of diminished capacity) must sign an assent form granting proxy to a parent or legal guardian. The language in the assent form covers proxy for both parents.
We offer a MyChart mobile app to help families access their Cincinnati Children’s health information on the go. The app gives you access to a patient’s current medication list, appointments, test results, messages, health reminders and health summary (allergies, immunizations, health issues).
You must have an activated MyChart account at Cincinnati Children’s to use the app. If you don’t have a MyChart account, ask a registrar at your clinic or the Family Resource Center. Then get the mobile app:
Android: Launch the Play app and search “MyChart.”
Apple iOS: Launch the App Store on a desktop or laptop via iTunes; download the app; install it when your mobile iDevice is synced.
