With caregiver access, you can view an adult patient's Geisinger medical record and communicate on their behalf. To request caregiver access, you must:
- Obtain the patient's written approval to access their medical record or provide Power of Attorney documentation
- Have your own MyGeisinger account
- Complete the appropriate caregiver authorization form:
- Caregiver form
- Power of Attorney form
- Once the appropriate form is complete you must print it, provide the appropriate signatures, and mail it to the address provided on the form. Once we receive the form we will process your request. When the request is finalized we will notify you with a MyGeisinger message that the access has been set up. This process will take between 5 and 7 days.
If you are NOT a registered MyGeisinger user, you can request access to the adult patient's account and as part of providing access to you, a MyGeisinger account will be created for you.
