• How will the organization ensure parent’s access is revoked once patient reaches age of
majority?
Patient Portals & Minors
What can the organization do?
•
•
•
Ensure compliance with applicable Federal & State laws regarding minors
Consult internal HIPAA privacy liaison to ensure portal access/rights are consistent with
Federal & State laws and other organizational practices
Approaches by other Healthcare Providers:
•
•
For patients under the age of 14, parents are able to access the portal with parental signed request
For patients aged 14-18,
•
•
•
•
Providers can withhold information if they believe it would jeopardize the health of their
patient in accordance with HIPAA privacy regulations
•
•
Require the child to sign a release form
Restrict parental access to certain sensitive data as required by applicable laws
Restrict portal access for minors ages 14-18
Consult internal HIPAA privacy liaison
Also note that there are differences for minors who are emancipated
