General Information and Enrollment
What is My Knoxville Portal?
My Knoxville Portal provides secure, online access to your personal medical information. My Knoxville Portal will allow patients to:
- Send secure electronic messages to their healthcare team
- Request appointments
- View visit summaries
- View lab results and vitals
- Access healthcare resources
- View a family member’s medical record (authorization required)
How do I sign up?
Patients requesting access to their own information can sign up two ways:
- Complete the authorization form and return to the clinic front desk. After the form is received, we will send an email invitation to the email you provided within 4 business days.
- Complete the self-enrollment process (see below)
Please note: individuals requesting proxy access to a family member’s medical record must complete the authorization form and return to the clinic front desk. Proxy access cannot be granted through self-enrollment.
How do I claim my invitation?
Open the email and click on the link that says “Accept Invitation to My Knoxville Portal”. This will direct you to the My Knoxville Portal account set up page. You will be asked to provide information to verify your identity and set a password for your account.
What if I didn’t receive my invitation email?
Please first check your spam or junk mail folders in your email account. If you still can’t find it, please call the Knoxville Clinic at 641-842-7211.
How do I self-enroll?
- Go to http://knoxvillehospital.iqhealth.com/self-enroll.
- Enter your first and last name, date of birth, and social security number.
- Set up your account by creating a user name, password, and security question.
Can I view a family member’s health record in My Knoxville Portal?
Parents can view their child’s medical record in My Knoxville Portal up to age 13. After age 13, the proxy access will need to be reauthorized by the child. Individuals that have Legal Guardianship or Durable Power of Attorney for a family member can request proxy access. An authorization form will need to be completed for each proxy access request. Proof of legal guardianship and durable power of attorney is required for authorization.
Proxy access cannot be granted through the self-enrollment process.
I don’t have any information in My Knoxville Portal account. Why?
You will only have medical information in your portal account if you have been seen at the hospital since October 14, 2013 or in the clinic since December 2, 2013. Previous medical information is “pre-loaded” into your health record prior to your visit, but that information is not loaded into your portal. Only information that has been recorded in our new electronic health record will be included in My Knoxville Portal. Additionally, to protect your privacy, not all medical information from your health record is released to the patient portal.
Why are my results listed in metric values?
It is common practice in healthcare to utilize the metric system. Unfortunately, we are unable to convert this data for viewing in My Knoxville Portal. If you would like to convert the values, please utilize one of the many conversion tools that can be found online.
