Our redesigned MyChildren’s Patient Portal features a sleek new look and upgraded functionality. The new MyChildren’s retains its core features—you can still view portions of your child’s medical record, send secure messages, request, confirm or cancel a visit and pay your Hospital balance online—but with the upgrade, you can now update your contact and insurance information in real-time, pre-checkin prior to your visit, and make co-payments. With the new version of MyChildren’s, you can self-schedule return visits in select clinics.
