The UPMC Central PA Portal is a free, secure, patient portal. It gives you online and mobile access to your health information right at your fingertips — anytime, anywhere.
You can manage the health information for your child or loved one through Proxy Access. By becoming a proxy, you can communicate with their UPMC providers, view their medical records and test results, manage their appointments, and more through your own UPMC Central PA Portal account. To get started with proxy access, talk to your child or loved one’s UPMC care team at their next appointment.
To manage proxy access, go to the menu and select Sharing Hub. You can view who sees your health record and whose health records you can see from your patient portal account. Within the Sharing Hub, you can also download your health records, request a formal copy of your health records, or share your records with a provider using Share Everywhere.

But the information each of you see may differ under adolescent privacy laws in Pennsylvania.
Proxy access to children is automatically discontinued when the child turns 18. When your child turns 18, they can get their own account, or you may complete an adult proxy request form to obtain adult proxy access. Adult proxy access allows for an authorized proxy to access the account of another patient over 18, such as an elderly parent.
To comply with certain laws regarding privacy rights of adolescents, the UPMC Central PA Portal limits the features that a proxy may access for pediatric patients ages 14 through 17. If your unique situation requires you to maintain full access to their records, you can talk to your child's care team about your needs at an upcoming appointment or contact your provider’s office.
