MyChart gives you online access to portions of your child's electronic medical record (EMR), where your child's doctor stores his or her health information. There are also mobile apps for your iPhone or Android. Your child's health is important to you around the clock. That’s why Tampa General Hospital offers MyChart. With MyChart, you can:
- View your child's After Visit Summary or Discharge Summary. These include a list of your child's current medications, known allergies, current health problems and reason for stay in the hospital or visit to the Emergency & Trauma Center.
- Securely print or download a copy of your child's file to take to his or her health provider.
Requesting proxy access
To request access to your child's chart, click here to download the form MyChart Child Proxy Form. You can also request proxy access to your child's chart through either the Tampa General Medical Group location at which your child receives care, or at Tampa General Hospital's Health Information Management Office located on the first floor of the East Pavilion at Tampa General Hospital. You will also need to provide identification.
Please note the following age range limitations for MyChart. These age range limitations do not affect any right you have to access your child's record by other means. Contact Tampa General Hospital's HIM Department to request a paper copy of your child's record.
- If your child is age 0 to 11, you will be granted full access to your child's MyChart record.
- Once your child reaches age 12, you will no longer have access to your child's MyChart record.
In consideration of the unique and difficult medical issues facing adolescent children, parent/guardian access to a child's account is not available for children 12 years of age or older.
Please complete both pages of the Child Proxy Form.
It can be returned in person to your provider's office, or in person to the Health Information Management Dept. located at:

Under state and federal law, there are certain types of medical information that the parent or guardian of a minor patient age 12 or older may not view without the consent of the minor patient. Because of these requirements, we will not offer MyChart proxy access to parents of minor patients after his or her 12th birthday. A parent or legal guardian of a minor child up to the child’s 12th birthday may request proxy access to their child’s MyChart account by completing the proxy access form mentioned above.
