If some of my health information on MyBrookdale is not correct, what should I do?

Can I view a family member's health record in MyBrookdale?

Complete a Proxy Consent Form and return it to one of our medical facilities to request access to this convenient service.

Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my MyBrookdale account?

MyBrookdale offers direct access to your personal health record and communicating about another individual's information would be placed in your health record. This information would not appear in the correct health record and could potentially jeopardize medical care.

Can my spouse and I share one MyBrookdale account?

No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must sign and submit a Release of Information request and establish their own MyBrookdale account.

Can you send me a new activation code as I have lost it, let it expire or did not receive it?

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 e-mail, all MyBrookdale messaging is done while you are securely logged on to our website.
