For a child under 13, a parent or legal guardian may log into their personal MyBothwellHealth account as a proxy, and then view information regarding their child. Per State and Federal guidelines, after the child reaches age 13, parents/guardians will need an additional authorization signed by the child to have access to the child’s medical record information. The Health Information Management department should be notified to update the Patient Portal once a child reaches the age of 13 to comply with the State and Federal guidelines.
It is also possible to request access to another adult’s health record with their authorization if you help manage that adult’s medical care. To request Proxy Access, complete and return the Authorization of Access/Proxy Form or contact Bothwell's Health Information Management department at MyBothwellHealth@brhc.org or 660-827-9590.
