How is MyCMHCare secure?
We take great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. Access to information is controlled through personal IDs and passwords. MyCMHCare uses the latest encryption technology. All MyCMHCare messaging is done while you are securely logged on to our website.
Can I also see my family members’ health records?
Yes, this is called Proxy Access. For a child under 18, this allows a parent or legal guardian to log into their personal MyCMHCare account, and then view information regarding their child. Per State and Federal guidelines, after the child reaches age 18, 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 Health Information Management department at 410.535.8275
