Visit us in person at a WVU Health Information Department or online at www.MyWVUChart.com to obtain a temporary activation code. You will have 30 days to activate the system before your temporary code expires. If you wish to oversee your child's or other family member's health information with MyWVUChart, you will need to obtain proxy access. Individuals seeking proxy access to a family member’s (including children up to age 18) MyWVUChart account must visit an activation site in person with the family member to obtain the necessary signatures. When you access MyWVUChart for the first time, you will be asked the social security number and date of birth of the patient. You will then be able to create your own user code and password, ensuring your health information is secure.

Proxies of minor children between the ages of 12 and 17 (inclusive) will need to have dual consents present (one from the minor and one from the proxy) in order to access the minor’s MyWVUChart account.
