What's the difference between ``read only`` and ``full access`` health care proxy accounts?

This is for a person who is a health care proxy. You can give someone permission to view
your records or act on your behalf in a health care setting. When you do, that person
becomes your health care proxy.

  • “Read only access” means your health care proxy can only view your information.

    changes the account.

      only read the information in your account.)
    • “Grant Full access.” (This means your health care proxy can read and
      make changes in your account.)

  • On the “Connections” tab, find the name of the health care organization. Click on the
    X next to its name.
