What if I need medical advice?
The portal is meant to make your medical information more accessible for you. It is not meant to solicit medical advice or to replace your visit to see your healthcare provider. If you have questions about your health or medications, make an appointment to see your healthcare provider to discuss your concerns.
Who else will see my portal account?
Your account can only be accessed using your password. Just as with anything that is password-protected your portal is your personal account, only accessible to you and whoever you give your account information to. If you wish to keep yours private be sure to protect your log-in information. If you want to give someone else permission to see your account you can set up proxy access.
What is proxy access?
No one is automatically granted access to another person's information. Even parents and legal guardians of minors must request proxy access to view a child's account. Proxy access enables individuals to view a child's, family member's or companion's online health information. Contact the admissions office for more information and to set up proxy access.
