Only you have access to your health information in Patient Connect. You have the ability to share this information at your discretion. You have the freedom to invite and/or revoke other people’s access to your health information, without needing to go through the healthcare organization.
You are able to determine access levels and choose what components of your health information each person is able to see. It is easy to see who has access to your information; you will also be able to see when the proxy user last viewed your information.
You can set this up by:
- Log into your Patient Connect account
- Select the Profile icon
- Click on the Shared Access button on the right side of you demographic information
It is important to remember that if a proxy requests a change of information via the Update Profile option, such as a change of address or email, this will change information on the patient’s health record.
