Is there a fee to use the NCH Patient Portal?

No! The NCH Patient Portal is a free service offered to our patients.

How is the NCH Patient Portal secure?

We take great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. Access to information is controlled through personal identifications and passwords. The NCH Patient Portal uses the latest encryption technology. All NCH Patient Portal messaging is completed 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 12, this allows a parent or legal guardian to log into their personal NCH Patient Portal account, and then view information regarding their child. Per State and Federal guidelines, after the child reaches age 12, we can no longer offer access until age 18.

Once a child turns 18, a parent can only access 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 your respective NCH affiliate or ISHC:
