Frequently Asked Questions
1. How quickly will you respond to my message to my provider? We will do our best to respond within 48 hours. But remember that portal messages should not be used for emergencies. Please call 911 if you are experiencing a medical emergency.
2. Can I schedule same day appointments through the portal? Unfortunately, no. You can request future appointments through the portal, but same day appointments will need to be made by calling us.
3. How quickly will my lab results appear on the portal? Lab results will appear in the portal seven days after your provider has reviewed them. Patients will also be contacted by phone for abnormal results.
4. What do I do if I’m at a patient at multiple MAHEC locations? If you are a patient at both our OB/GYN and Family Medicine practices, you only need to sign up for the portal once. You only have one medical record with MAHEC so it will contain all your information in one account.
5. Why don’t I see all my medical information? You portal account may not contain all your historical medical information. Information will only be available in the portal beginning the date we switched to an Electronic Medical Record (August 2012 for Family Medicine / March 2013 for Ob/Gyn Specialists).
6. What should I do if I see a discrepancy or information that is not up-to-date on my chart? If you notice that your medical information contains a discrepancy, something you don’t understand, or should be updated, please discuss it with your medical provider.
7. Is there an app for the portal? Yes! You can download the free portal app at your Apple or Android store. Just search “followmyhealth.”

What is a proxy?
A proxy is an individual who can make health care decisions for another individual. This can be a legal guardian, parent, or power of attorney.
Can I access my children’s health records?
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child, you can have access to his/her electronic health records through a proxy account on the MAHEC FollowMyHealth Patient Portal. However, this only applies to children who are between the ages of 0-10. North Carolina law prohibits adults from having access to their children’s medical records when the child turns 11 years old.
To become a proxy for your child, you will need to fill out the “Minor Patient” section of the MAHEC FollowMyHealth Patient Portal Proxy Form.
When your child turns 18, he/she will be considered an adult and will be able to register for a MAHEC FollowMyHealth Patient Portal of their own.
Can I access another adult’s records?
If you are the legal guardian of an adult patient or have a Power of Attorney for Health Care, you can register to access another adult’s records and become a proxy for that patient.
You may also become a proxy for a capable adult patient if the adult patient has signed the MAHEC FollowMyHealth Patient Portal Proxy form to approve you as his/her proxy.
How long does it take to set up a proxy account?
Setting up a proxy account may take up to two weeks to process, especially for proxies of adult patients. For this reason, please ensure that when registering to be a proxy, that you have all necessary materials to complete the process. This includes any legal guardian or power of attorney forms, as well as your MAHEC FollowMyHealth Patient Portal Proxy form.
I’ve filed out the form to set up a proxy account. What is my access/invitation code?
Your access/invite code will be the last four digits of your social security number.
Can I send a message on behalf of the person I am a proxy for to his/her provider?
Unfortunately, proxy accounts are unable to send messages to a patient’s provider. If you wish to communicate with that patient’s provider, you will need to contact one of our MAHEC clinics. You can find the contact information for each respective clinic here.
