Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register for the myCHLA portal?
To register for a myCHLA account, go to http://mychla.chla.org.
Select “Create an Account” at the top right corner of the site. Complete the registration process online. You will receive an email from CHLA confirming that your request has been received. CHLA’s Health Information Management office will verify your information and send you confirmation within 48 hours.
Note: One physician in your practice must be designated as a Practice Owner and will need to be the first person to create a myCHLA account. As a physician or a non-physician in an office that has a Practice Owner, you will need to enter a unique practice ID number, which can be obtained from the practice owner in your office.
Step-by-step instructions for account creation can be found in our User Guide.
Or, for a general overview, please see our Quick Reference Guide.
Can myCHLA be accessed by office administrators, managers, physician assistants and nurses in the practice?
Yes. Staff members can be granted access with permission from the Practice Owner in your office once they have created a myCHLA account. Practice Owners can enroll their staff under the “My Practice” tab. Staff members can also “Create an Account” and enter the unique practice ID number from the website’s home page.
I’m part of multiple practices; do I need separate logins for each?
No. All of your patients will be available for viewing under one login. Please make sure to select the appropriate practice when submitting referrals. You may also select a default account under your account information.
Can parents or legal guardians access their child’s records through the myCHLA portal?
No. Patients and parents or legal guardians can access medical records through the MyChildren'sLA patient portal.
I forgot my username and/or password. What should I do?
Select the “Forgot username or password” option on the myCHLA homepage. Choose from the options listed and enter your first and last name and the email address you used to create the account. Once your information is entered, you will be asked to answer a security question before a link to reset your password/username is sent to your email.

If I need support for my account, whom do I contact?
If you are a myCHLA user and need support with an active account, please call: 888-631-2452, option 4. In addition, the Provider Relations team is available to help answer any questions. Our contact information can be found here.

What is the status of my referral?
You can check the status of your referral in the “View My Referrals” section of the “My Referrals” tab. Please call 888-631-2452, option 4, if you need further assistance.
I submitted a referral via fax. Will it display on the “My Referrals” tab in the portal?
Yes, all of your referrals, whether faxed, called in, or entered in the portal will automatically flow into the “My Referrals” list after they are entered into our system.
