We will begin offering access to our clinical portal (MySeattleChildren’s) this summer to our 13-17 year old patient population.  This is an important step forward in engaging our patients in managing their own care.  Parents/guardians of this age range will have proxy access to include ability to message with providers/clinic staff, view appointments, and view allergies only. Adolescents will have full access to the information we share on the portal. There will be a consent process in clinic to support these new accounts.

At the same time, we will introduce Sensitive Messaging within Message Center.  This will allow users at Seattle Children’s to choose which individuals associated with the patient will receive a message via the portal, such as communicating with the adolescent only or parent only.

For questions, please contact Emily Gonzales (CIS) or Sri Grevich (physician informatics)
