What medical documents can I access through MyMemorial?
Results from most laboratory and radiology tests performed at a Memorial facility are available through MyMemorial. Please note that radiology reports, not images are available.

How soon will I see my documents?
Most documents will be posted to MyMemorial within 72 hours of completion. This short delay allows time for your provider to review your results and share them with you. Please keep in mind that some tests take longer to complete than others and these results may take longer to be posted.
What if I have a question about my results? Who do I contact?
For questions about specific test results, please contact the health care provider who ordered the test.
How do I access other family member’s records?
Connecting your MyMemorial account to another account such as a family member is called “proxy access”. Your family members must grant you access to their MyMemorial accounts, if they choose. If you would like to become a proxy to another patient’s account, or assign a proxy to help manage your own account, please visit with the family member our HIM (Health Information Management) department with a photo ID.
How do I access my child’s records?
If your child is under the age of 12 a parent/guardian can have access to their child’s records. Completion of the proxy access form will be necessary. Parent/guardian access automatically expires on the child’s 12th birthday. This is required by Illinois state law. Parents and legal guardians may still request paper copies of all medical records for their children under 18 from Memorial’s Health Information Management.
