Those who have proxy access to the
My Health Home patient portal could potentially access unauthorized information without
the consent of the minor patient. Therefore, all access to the My Health

(ages 12-17), excluding the sensitive information, by going to the
Health Information Management department (Medical Records) in person to make a request. Minor children
can authorize the release of sensitive information in their records to
a parent or guardian by going to Medical Records in person to sign a release
of information (ROI) form.
The Medical Records department is open Monday-Friday from 8 am-5 pm and
can be reached by calling 307.688.1301.
