Whether you’re a current or new patient, Mychart ST Marys is a great way to access your health information at the touch of a button. In addition to your medical records, MyChart allows you to schedule appointments, request prescription refills, and pay your bill. If you’re a child or teen, you can also access your health information online with a Proxy account.
Mychart ST Marys
Mychart ST Marys is an online patient portal that allows you to access and manage your medical record. This portal provides easy access to your medical information and allows you to communicate with your doctor and staff. To start using MyChart, click the button below and complete the registration form. After completing the form, you will be asked to enter an Activation Code, which will be emailed to you.
You can also access your health information online through the St. Mary’s Health System’s secure patient portal. Through this patient portal, you can access your medical records, communicate with your doctor, and access test results online. You can also fax authorization forms to St. Mary’s, if necessary.
Your child can access their MyChart account if they have a parent or other authorized person who has proxy access. Your child will be notified about MyChart at least three months before their birthday. Until that time, parents can use MyChart to communicate with their child’s health care team.
To use MyChart, you must have an Internet connection with a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) compatible browser or terminal. The AMITA Health SSL web server uses authentication and offers the highest level of encryption technology commercially available. 128-bit RC4 encryption is used. You can recognize a secure site by its URL beginning with https:// instead of http://. This ensures that it cannot be read by unauthorized parties. The secure site is also protected by a digital certificate, which validates the connection between your computer and the AMITA Health server.
Proxy access for a child aged 12 through 17
Proxy access is a powerful feature of MyChart that lets a parent or other adult manage the health care of a child or another adult. The patient or other adult can grant proxy access to someone else based on their consent. For children under the age of 12, proxy access is not required. However, teens are required to sign a proxy access form before they can access protected health information.
Proxy access lets an individual view a child’s medical information on MyChart without having to log in yourself. It can be granted to a guardian, spouse, or another adult with consent. It can also be given to an agent under a healthcare power of attorney.
Privacy laws that protect a teen patient’s medical records
When a child reaches the age of 12, MyChart settings will automatically change to give them private access to their health information. These changes are based on the age of majority and federal privacy laws. After that, they can seek health care independently for certain conditions, and can even request their own medical records.
The teen patient’s medical records can be viewed by any member of their family with their consent. This can be done by parents, legal guardians, or spouses. They can also grant proxy access to an agent under a health care power of attorney.
Parents or guardians can also access an adolescent patient’s account through a patient portal. Most health systems also offer a proxy account to allow guardians to view certain portions of the adolescent’s account and communicate with their adolescent’s clinicians separately. However, these new practices raise concerns about patient confidentiality.
