Access to your own health record

The Personal Health Information Act (PHIPA) governs the collection, use, access, and disclosure of Personal Health Information in Ontario. This Act gives patients a right to access, disclose and correct their personal information.

Access parts of your health record using MyChart

MyChart is a secure, online patient portal that provides patients and authorized family members and caregivers access to parts of their SickKids’ electronic health record, anywhere, at any time. Request a MyChart account if you are looking for appointment information, medications, labs results, diagnostic images reports, after visit summaries and other letters since June 2018.

Requesting a copy of your own record (patient/parent/substitute decision maker request)

If the records you are looking for are not in MyChart, or you are not eligible for a MyChart account, you must submit a written request to Health Information Management. Records typically not included in MyChart are: clinic notes, letters, operative notes, audiology reports or other test results.

The amount of information requested impacts processing time and cost. If you need help on deciding what information to request, please see the what to request section.

Please note that fees apply for this service. Please refer to the administrative fees section.

Request to view your health record in person

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) , we are currently unable to facilitate requests to view patient charts in person. Once we have received governmental and hospital approval to resume regular service, you may request to view your chart.
