Proxy access allows you to securely communicate with the patient's physician's office on behalf of a family member or person under your care. This communication is done using a MyChart Account and is restricted to non-urgent matters. Proxy access is granted once an authorization form has been completed and processed by site where the patient is receiving care. Proxy access can be terminated by YNHHS/YM at anytime.
Pediatric/Teen proxy access for MyChart allows a parent or guardian to securely communicate on behalf of an YNHHS/YM pediatric patient who is under the age of 18. Access is obtained by completing the MyChart – Access Authorization with Minor Proxy form. The proxy is automatically terminated on the child's 18th birthday.
Adult proxy access for MyChart allows you to securely communicate on behalf of an YNHHS/YM patient who is 18 years of age or older. In order to obtain access, both the patient and proxy must complete and sign the MyChart – Access Authorization with Adult Proxy. The proxy's access is terminated when the patient makes a written or online request to terminate access, an expiration date specified by the patient is reached, or the patient revokes access from within their MyChart account.
