If you need additional information than what is available through My Patient Portal, please contact the Health Information Management department at (309) 944-9108.
Can I also see my family members health records?
Yes, this is called Proxy Access. (Proxy Access form) For a child under 12, this allows a parent or legal guardian to log into their personal My Patient Portal account, and then view information regarding their child. Per state and federal guidelines, after the child reaches age 12, parents/guardians will need an additional authorization signed by the child to have access to the child's medical record information.
Once a child turns 18, a parent can only access the child’s patient medical record information with the patient’s authorization. It is also possible to request access to another adult’s health record if you help manage that adult’s medical care. For more information please contact the Health Information Management department at (309) 944-9108.
