Then, you will need to request Norton MyChart proxy access. Proxy access simply means allowing electronic access to someone else’s medical information. To get access to a child’s Norton MyChart: From a computer, log in to your own account, go to “Menu” and then “Personalize” and request access to your minor’s record. If the child is a legal adult, they must log in to their own Norton MyChart account and grant their parent or caregiver access through their “Sharing Hub” within the main menu.
