Learn More About MyUTHealth
Your MyUTHealth information comes directly from your electronic medical record at your doctor’s office. Ask your doctor to correct any inaccurate information at your next clinic visit. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your electronic medical record each visit.
You will generally receive an answer within 1-3 business days. Please note MyUTHealth should not be used for urgent situations. For medical emergencies requiring immediate attention, please dial 911 or go to the nearest medical facility.
Yes, you can. This is called proxy access and allows a parent, guardian, spouse or other authorized family member to log in to their own MyUTHealth account and then connect to information regarding their family member.
Complete a Proxy Consent Form and return it to one of our clinics to request access to this convenient service or select “Share My Record” from the “Health” menu. From there you can select “Friends and family access” and modify or add new access to your health record.
The availability of information in the family member’s account varies based on the patient age and access granted.
Due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must establish their own MyUTHealth account. While spouses cannot share one account, they can grant proxy access.
You may email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a new, secure password. You may also click the “Forgot password” link on myuthealth.org to reset your password online.
Log into MyUTHealth and from the left menu, go to the Preferences section and select the appropriate option.
We take great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. Access to information is controlled through secure activation codes, personal usernames, and passwords. Each person controls their password, and the account cannot be accessed without that password. Unlike conventional email, all MyUTHealth messaging is done while you are securely logged on to our website.
MyUTHealth is owned and operated by UTHealth and is fully compliant with federal and state laws pertaining to your privacy. Your name and email address will be treated with the same care and privacy given your health records and will never be sold or leased by MyUTHealth.

We aim to protect your privacy and security of your information. While logged into MyUTHealth, if your keyboard remains idle for 15 minutes or more, you will be automatically logged out of MyUTHealth. We recommend you log out of your MyUTHealth session if you need to leave your computer for even a short period of time.
You need access to a computer, mobile device, or tablet connected to the internet. For a mobile device or tablet, you will be able to download MyUTHealth from Google Play or Apple’s app store.
It’s easy. You can find UTHealth/UT Physicians on the MyChart app’s health care provider directory.
MyUTHealth can send reminders for preventive care, test results, statements, payment reminder and others. Patients may adjust their notification settings. UTHealth does not have an integrated pharmacy that dispenses medications, so refill due messages will not be available.
Upon review by your physician, a list of current medications, health issues, allergies, and immunizations will be available on your MyUTHealth account. Most test results from the previous five years, as well as a history of medical appointments since Jan. 1, 2008, will also be available. Please note that while your current medical conditions will be available in the new portal, previous medical conditions, as well as your family medical history and surgery history, will not be released to MyUTHealth. Messages, notes, comments, and attachments exchanged between you and your health care team in MyUTP/FollowMyHealth also will not be transferred to the new portal.
Yes, you will be notified of changes to your proxy access upon logging into MyUTHealth. Proxy access changes when your child turns 12 and proxy access will end when your child turns 18.
At 12 your child is eligible for their own full access MyUTHealth account. You will continue to be able to message your child’s care team, though available information will be limited due to privacy laws.
If you have any technical questions related to setting up your portal account, email email@example.com or call 1-855-316-4256. Note: The email address and phone number is not a way to communicate with health care professionals. The information is only received by a technical team to aid you with setting up a portal profile, or troubleshooting any issues with your account.
