MyUnityPoint Proxy Access

Through the MyUnityPoint website, registered users can request online access to medical information for their children or someone else in their care that 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 and select Request Proxy Access under the Messaging menu option. Don't have a MyUnityPoint account? You will need to create an account at chart.myunitypoint.org to request access. You do not have to be a UnityPoint Health patient to create an account.
