MyChart Functionality & Access Class Differences
Use the table below to review what types of information and features are available in MyChart, as well as what information any proxies for patients will be able to see.
Different Types of MyChart Access
Patients viewing their own MyChart accounts will have access to the most information and functionality currently available for managing their care. Proxies, in general, will have a more limited view into any linked patient's MyChart account. There are three common types of proxy relationships in use at Boston Medical Center: Adult-Child Proxy, Adult-Teen Proxy, and Adult-Adult Proxy. See below for an overview of the different types of MyChart access.
|Patient Access||Default Functionality Available to MyChart Account Holders|
|Adult-Child Proxy (0-12)||MyChart access for all patients aged 0 years to 12 years, 364 days is via
a guardian accessing patient data as a proxy with Adult-Teen Proxy
Access. No login is provided to the patient at this time. This proxy
relationship automatically rolls over to Adult-Child Proxy Access on the
patient's 13th birthday.
|Adult-Teen Proxy (13-17)||Patients aged 13 years to 17 years, 364 days may designate an account
proxy. If they do, the proxy receives this limited access. This proxy
relationship expires automatically on the patient's 18th birthday.
|Adult-Adult Proxy||Adults may designate another adult who can access information available in MyChart. The minimum age requirement for this access is 18, and there is no maximum.|
