Can I also see my family members’ health records?
Yes, this is called Proxy Access. For a child under 12, this allows a parent
or legal guardian to log into their personal
My.GoodSam.Org account, and then view information regarding their child. Per State and
Federal guidelines, after the child reaches age 12, parents/guardians
will need an additional authorization signed by the child to have access
to the child’s medical record information.
Once a child turns 18, a parent can only access to the child’s patient
medical record information with the patient’s authorization. It
is also possible to request access to another adult’s health record
if you help manage that adult’s medical care. For more information
please contact the Medical Records Department at 213-977-2100.
