Giving a family/friend/substitute decision maker access to my Patient Portal:

When you are initially registered for the Patient Portal, only you will have access to your medical information.

However, once your account has been set up, you have the ability to use the "Shared Access" setting to add people to your account. This can include family members, care partners, or substitute decision makers who you have chosen to provide access.

There is no limit on the number of viewers you can add to your account. You are able to set 'levels' of access for the viewers, ensuring that they only have access to the health information you're comfortable sharing with them.

To set up 'Shared Access':

  1. Log in to your Patient Portal account
  2. Click on the 'Profile' icon in the upper right corner of the screen
  3. On the next page, select the 'Shared Account' button to the right of your patient information

How do I change my email address or password?
