The MyChart Patient Portal is an online tool that provides medical information about care provided at Johns Hopkins All Children’s and connects you to your health care team.
Welcome to MyChart!
While making the transition to MyChart from our previous platform, there are a few things that Parents or Guardians who use MyChart should be aware of:
- Three years of lab results, notes, visits and other health information from our previous electronic medical record (EMR) system were transferred to MyChart. If you need older medical records, you can request medical records from our Health Information Management (HIM) department.
- Parents or guardians accessing information about a patient ages 13-17 will only have limited access to MyChart, with the ability to message some of their providers and view/pay bills online. This limited access reflects privacy laws and encourages teens to feel comfortable sharing health concerns with their care team. Teens aged 13-17 are encouraged to establish their own MyChart account, where they can see their full information.
MyChart is an online tool that provides medical information about care provided at Johns Hopkins All Children’s and connects you to your health care team. It is convenient, secure and free.
Your provider can help you sign up for MyChart. Once you are enrolled, you can access Johns Hopkins MyChart from your smartphone, tablet or computer. Visit mychart.hopkinsmedicine.org or download the app from the iTunes or Google Play stores.
With MyChart, you can:
- See portions of your/your child’s medical record, including some test results, scans and images
- Monitor health care provided
- View and pay bills
- Send secure messages to some members of the health care team
- Request prescription renewals
- Request an appointment
Types of MyChart Access
- When the patient is age 12 or younger:
Parents/guardians can request a proxy account and will have full access to the child’s MyChart information.
- For patients ages 13 –17:
Parents/guardians can continue to use MyChart to share messages with some of their providers and view or pay bills. This limited access reflects privacy laws and encourages teens to feel comfortable sharing health concerns with their care team.
Teens aged 13-17 are encouraged to establish their own MyChart account, where they can see their full information.
- For young adults ages 18 and older:
When the patient turns 18, the parent/guardian’s proxy access automatically ends. The patient may complete and sign an adult proxy authorization to continue their parent/guardian’s proxy access.
Signing Up for MyChart
All access to records through MyChart requires a MyChart account. Parents and guardians can be granted “proxy access” to the accounts for their children. Please select the category below that applies to you for instructions on how to sign up for MyChart:
Reach out to your provider's office and they can help you activate your MyChart account.
Reach out to your child’s provider and they can send you an enrollment link for a MyChart account with proxy access to your child’s records.
- Reach out to your child’s provider and they can send you an enrollment link for a MyChart account with proxy access that will give you access to message your child’s care team and view or pay bills.
- Teens aged 13-17 are encouraged to establish their own MyChart account, where they can see their full information. Proxy access to their medical information is highly limited to accommodate patient privacy laws and build patient confidence in their care team.
- In order to grant access to their account, a patient 18 years of age or older must create their own MyChart account by visiting MyChart.HopkinsMedicine.org and select “Sign Up Now” or by calling their practitioner.
- Once the 18-year old patient has their own MyChart account, they can log in and click “Share my Record” under the menu.
- There will be an online form to fill out and submit – once the form is submitted it will be reviewed and the patient will be informed of the status of their request.
- If the new proxy does not already have a MyChart account, one will be created for them.
If you are responsible for the care of a person who is cognitively limited or otherwise incapacitated, please visit the MyChart Proxy Access page
for details on how to gain access to MyChart for this patient.
- Download the correct form from the MyChart sign-in page, or request the form at a Johns Hopkins facility.
- Complete and sign the appropriate proxy access form.
- Give the completed form to a health care professional where the patient is receiving care.
- A parent can then ask a member of their child's health care team to help them set up MyChart access for themselves and complete proxy access for the child.
- Other adults requesting access to a child or teen's chart will need to submit legal documentation showing proof of court-appointed legal guardianship and have their proxy access form reviewed and approved by the Privacy Office.
