Proxy Access

MyUnityPoint

Get online access to your loved ones’ health information.

Through the MyUnityPoint website, registered users can request online access to medical information for their children or someone else in their care who has impaired decision-making abilities. Also, adult patients may grant proxy access to other adults, allowing spouses, adult children and others to have access to an existing adult patient's account.

The type of proxy access is primarily based on the patient's age. The "proxy" is the person granted access to another person's health information.

Need Proxy Access?

To request access to use MyUnityPoint on behalf of someone else:

  • Log in to your MyUnityPoint account
  • Select Share My Record on the drop-down menu
  • Select Friends & Family Access to enter appropriate proxy request.

Don't have a MyUnityPoint account? You'll need to create an account at chart.myunitypoint.org to request access. You don't have to be a UnityPoint Health patient to create an account.

Proxy Access Document Requirements

If you’re the healthcare power of attorney or legal guardian for any patient you're requesting proxy access to, we must have legal documents on file. You can submit legal documents by:

  • Fax: 866-846-7864
  • Mail: MyUnityPoint Registration 3851 River Ridge Dr. NE Cedar Rapids, IA 52402
  • Drop off at the patient's clinic.
