Yes, through Proxy Access. To protect the privacy of patient health information, access to another record must be authorized. This type of access is called Proxy Access and allows another individual, such as a parent, guardian, spouse, partner or other individual, to log into their own myWakeHealth account and then connect to information regarding the individual that has authorized them to have Proxy Access. If the individual authorized to have Proxy Access does not already have their own myWakeHealth account, or is not a patient of Wake Forest Baptist Health, an account will be created for them.
There are three broad categories of Proxy Access, and a Proxy Access form is available for each category. Please click the appropriate link to download the form.
Proxy forms are available via the links above, via myWakeHealth, or in the Health Information Management department at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center located on the 4th Floor of the South Building, Medical Center Boulevard, Winston-Salem, NC.
Patients may deliver completed, signed proxy authorization forms (with additional documentation if specified by the type of proxy access) in person to the Health Information Management (HIM) department or mail them to:
