Follow these steps to create a MyHealth Records account.
Step 1: Create a MyAlberta Digital ID.
MyAlberta Digital Identity (ID) gives quick and secure access to some online government services. You need a MyAlberta Digital ID to sign into MyHealth Records.
Step 2: Confirm your MyAlberta Digital ID
Once you have a MyAlberta Digital ID, start the process of verifying your MyAlberta Digital ID by confirming your identity with your Alberta driver’s license or identification card. A mobile device can be used to scan your ID. You can also manually enter your Alberta driver's license number, Alberta Provincial ID card number, and ACN (Audit Control Number) on the back of the card.
Confirming your identity is the first step of the MyAlberta Digital ID identity verification process. When Alberta government systems confirm the existence of your Alberta driver’s licence or identification card with matching personal information, you receive a confirmation email, and a letter with an activation code to verify your MyAlberta Digital ID sent by regular mail. It should arrive within 10 days. The activation code is valid for 90 days.

Manage account page to complete the ID verification process. Make sure to verify your MyAlberta Digital ID within 90 days of your sign up to continue getting up-to-date Alberta lab results, medication, and immunization information in MyHealth Records.
