Adult access

My Health Connection’s adult access gives a person you choose the right to log in to your account and the right to use your health information. This service can also be used by legal guardians or caregivers of dependent adults. They can access some parts of your medical record only if they have a durable power of attorney for health care.

If you have a My Health Connection account, you can ask for this access electronically. Go to “Tools” and select “Share My Record.” You will then select “Account Sharing” from the “Share with people” section, then click “Invite Someone” and fill out all of the required fields. You can also complete the My Health Connection Adult Authorization Form and mail it to the address listed on the form.

Child access

My Health Connection’s child access can be used by parents or legal guardians of dependent children. Access by parents or guardians is not restricted for patients under the age of 14. Patients aged 14 to 18 may have the legal right to consent to certain types of medical treatment themselves. They do not need consent by their parent or guardian. UCHealth respects the rights of these young patients to keep their medical care private.

Parents and legal guardians can see some parts of the child’s medical record only with a durable power of attorney for health care. Parents and legal guardians will always have the right to request copies of complete medical records for their children, as permitted by law.

If you have a My Health Connection account, you can ask for this access electronically. Go to “Tools” and select “Request Account Access.” You can also complete the My Health Connection Adult Authorization Form and mail it to the address listed on the form.
