Washington University FollowMyHealth Patient Portal Minor (Child) Request Form

What is a proxy access for a health record?

Proxy access allows a parent, guardian or other legally authorized adult to log into Washington University Follow My Health and connect to the account of a family member or another person.

If you are a proxy for a minor child you will have access to his or her medical record, the ability to message providers and refill prescriptions until the minor reaches the protected age. That age is determined by state and federal law requirements.

If you wish to gain access to your child’s (a minor) medical information, you will need to request a proxy account.

What paperwork do I need to have?

In most instances, you do not need to provide any documentation to us to establish an account for a minor child. However, if there has been a legal or court decision made regarding the custody or guardianship of the child in question, please provide copies of the parenting plan, custody documents or guardianship documents to:

Privacy Office
Washington University
Campus Box 8098
660 S. Euclid, 63110


or fax to 314-362-1199.

How long does it take?

For the protection of our patients, proxy accounts will only be granted to people who have the legal right to request medical information on behalf of our patient. Because this must be verified, proxy accounts may take longer to complete.
