Registered users of the FollowMyHealth® patient portal can request online access to the health information of an adult under their care who has difficulty making decisions. Proxy access allows viewing the adult patient’s health information on the portal and, in some cases, communicating through the portal with the adult patient’s healthcare team.
In order to provide users with health information, educational materials, and communication tools through the FollowMyHealth portal, there are several features available. FollowMyHealth is not intended for the purpose of providing medical advice. Consult your physician if you need medical or personal advice, or if you have concerns about your health. Use FollowMyHealth only when you are not in an emergency. If you have an urgent medical issue, call 911 or your doctor’s office right away.
