    When can I see my test results in myUCLAhealth?

    For outpatient tests, results are released to your myUCLAhealth account after your physician has reviewed them or within three business days of when the results become available. Tests taken during a hospital admission are available within a few hours. Certain tests may take longer to process than others. Imaging, pathology, and cytology reports are only viewable at the doctor’s discretion. Only the impression section of all imaging reports is viewable in your account.

    Return to Top

    Why are certain test results not shared electronically via myUCLAhealth?

    Your physician is able to determine which types of test results are able to be accessed through myUCLAhealth. Further, tests of a very sensitive nature are not released to myUCLAhealth. Please contact the Medical Records office to obtain a full copy of your results by visiting uclahealth.org/medicalrecords or call the Medical Records office at (310) 825-6021.

    Return to Top

    My test results are not showing up. What should I do?

    Test results from the time you sign-up for your myUCLAhealth account and onward will be available for viewing. Past results are not automatically available for viewing. If you do not see a test result that was taken after you have activated your account, please send a message through myUCLAhealth to your doctor’s office to request it be released to you. The particular test may require the doctor to manually send the result to your account.

    Return to Top

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

    Your myUCLAhealth information comes directly from your electronic medical record at UCLA Health. If you would like to make changes to your Health Issues, Allergies, or Medications list, utilize the “plus” and “minus” buttons in those sections to submit an update request to your doctor. Your doctor will review them with you upon your next visit. For all other changes, send your doctor a message through your myUCLAhealth account.

    Return to Top

    If I send a message to my doctor or nurse, when can I expect a reply?

    You will generally receive an answer within two business days. Please note that myUCLAhealth should not be used for urgent situations. Please contact your medical center if the situation requires immediate attention or dial 911 if it is an emergency.

    Return to Top

    Why is my physician not available in the dropdown menu to send a message?

    The physician dropdown menu is populated based on which doctor you have seen in an in-person appointment. Doctors and other clinicians working in the hospitals will not be available for messaging. If you have not seen a particular doctor in the last 18 months, he/she will be automatically removed from your dropdown menu.

    Return to Top

    I received my Activation Code after being discharged from the hospital. When I log in to myUCLAhealth, why do I not have the option to request an appointment or send a message?

    Your appointment and messaging options are for outpatient appointments. If you did not have an existing myUCLAhealth account prior to being admitted to the hospital, no medical offices will be linked to your account. After your next outpatient visit, the appointment and messaging functionality will be made available.

    Return to Top

    How do I request paper copies of my official medical record?

    Please visit uclahealth.org/medicalrecords to complete an Authorization for Release of Health Information form and further instructions or call the Medical Record office at (310) 825-6021.

    Return to Top

    What should I do now that my referral has been authorized?

    You have the option of sending your doctor's office a message requesting the contact information for the "Referred to" physician/office to schedule an appointment or you can Google search for the information. If you choose to Google search, it is highly recommended that you still follow up with your referring doctor's office to verify that you have the correct contact information.

    Return to Top

    What should I do if my referral's status is pending/incomplete/denied/canceled/closed?

    Feel free to send a message to the referring doctor to inquire about referral status

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

    Yes. This is called Proxy access and allows a parent, legal guardian, or caretaker to initially log in through their personal myUCLAhealth account before they can connect to information regarding their family member.

    If you are the parent or legal guardian of a patient under 18 years of age, you may request proxy access at the patient’s next outpatient appointment. Please note that proxy access to patients between 12-17 years of age will be limited to view only access.

    If you are requesting proxy access to a consenting adult’s account, the consenting patient must complete the Adult Proxy Consent Form and submit it to his/her doctor’s office.

    If proxy access is needed for a patient with diminished capacity, please present appropriate legal documentation, such as Power of Attorney or Health Directive, to the patient’s doctor’s office or to the UCLA Health Medical Records Office (uclahealth.org/medicalrecords).

    How do I sign-up for proxy access?

    What will my proxy see in my myUCLAhealth account?

    Full proxy access is available for patients under the age of 12 years and adult patients age 18 and older. Proxies of teenage patients, between 12 to 17 years of age, will have limited view only access to Health Issues, Allergies, Immunizations, and Test Results.

    Return to Top

    May I limit what information my proxy has access to in my account?

    At this time, there is no method of limiting the type of information an approved proxy can access. There are two options: no access or full access to your account.

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

    myUCLAhealth offers direct access to your personal health record and communication 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. However, if you are a proxy for a patient under the age of 12 years or an adult patient age 18 and older, you may log in to your own account and access the patient's account to send a question on behalf of the patient.

    Return to Top

    Can my spouse and I share one myUCLAhealth account?

    No. Due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult UCLA patient must establish their own myUCLAhealth . However, if you would like your spouse to have access to your health information, you may grant proxy access to each other’s accounts by completing the Adult Proxy Consent Form for each other.

    What happens to the myUCLAhealth account if a patient is deceased?

    When a patient’s status is changed to “deceased” in our electronic medical record system, the patient’s online account is immediately deactivated and all users designated as proxy to the patient’s myUCLAhealth account will lose access immediately as well. Family members who wish to obtain the patient’s medical information should submit their request to the UCLA Health Medical Records Office uclahealth.org/medicalrecords or contact them directly at (310) 825-6021.
