Frequently Asked Questions

Issecure?

Rochelle Community Hospital has taken every precaution to ensure electronic health records are secure, confidential and respectful of your privacy.

May I allow someone else to have access to my health records?

Yes. This is called "Proxy Access" and you should be aware of the following: A parent or legal guardian for a child under 12 may access the child's my RCH health account and view the record.

However, per State and Federal guidelines, after the child turns 12, parents/guardians are now required to have an additional authorization signed by the child to gain access to that child's personal medical records. 

Once a child turns 18, parents/guardians can only access that child's personal medical records with his/her authorization.

If you help manage an adult's medical care, it is possible to request access to that person's health record. For more information, please contact the Health Information Management Department at 815-562-2181, ext. 2740.
