Abstract Patient controlled health records (PCHRs) provide widespread and flexible access to integrated medical information. Unique legal challenges arise where the patient is a minor. Variations in laws and statutes concerning minorís rights to privacy and confidentiality, and institutionsí local interpretations of them, need to be integrated in the principles governing PCHRs. We propose a legal framework to guide the development of access policies for PCHRs to ensure appropriate privacy and confidentiality protection surrounding minors.
