Hello – we implemented Teen MyChart the end of 1st Quarter. Minors 13-17 may have a MyChart account without specific parental/guardian permission. Parents/Guardians may request proxy access without the minor permission. We do not display confidential notes if the patient has identified those visits to be sensitive in line with MN statues related to minor privacy protections. Implementation of Teen MyChart has allowed for minors to have integrated video visits; parents need to be present to give permission for the visit with the minor even if they are not present for the entire virtual visit. We have cautiously increased some of the proxy view of information however we are still working through this very carefully to manage to parental rights of access, state statute, etc.
