What Is MyChart Proxy Access?

MyChart makes it easy to review details about your medical visits. University of Utah Health patients age 18 and older can use MyChart proxy access to share important information about their health with people they trust most. 

Your MyChart proxy will be able to: 

  • view your diagnoses, medicines, vaccines, visit notes, and test results.
  • request appointments and prescription refills for you.
  • help you communicate with your health care team.
  • share portions of your chart with other doctors and hospitals.

MyChart follows state and federal laws to keep your health information private and secure.

Who Can Be a MyChart Proxy?

If you are 18 or older, you can appoint any adult as your MyChart proxy, such as a close friend, a family member, or someone who lives nearby. You can also appoint more than one person to be your MyChart proxy — a convenient option for patients who have people that help manage their health care from far away. 

Contact your pediatrician’s office to learn more about MyChart proxy access for patients under the age of 18.

How to Set Up Your MyChart Proxy

You can set up your MyChart proxy online, by phone, or in person.
