How can I get access to HealthLink?

Request access by submitting a brief questionnaire. Our HealthLink Team will reach out to guide you through the process.


HealthLink Access

Please work directly with your UCLA business partner (Sponsor). After consulting with the Sponsor, you may begin the request process by completing the New Access Request Form. If you would like more information, please submit your questions using the Customer Service Form.

Access will be determined by the UCLA HealthLink governing group on an individual basis.

  1. Submit an access request form after Sponsor approval
  2. Submit a copy of your general liability insurance certificate
  3. Complete and sign off on the UCLA HealthLink Use Agreement

All users accessing HealthLink will need to first authenticate into the site using Duo for Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). This step will provide an extra layer of security to the HealthLink website.

All new requests will be addressed within two weeks of submitting the completed access request form and required documents.

Access can also be extended to other non-providers on a case-by-case basis. If you are a payor, researcher, other vendor, please work directly with your UCLA Sponsor to discuss HealthLink as an option for you. Applications for access should only be submitted after approval from the UCLA Sponsor.

Once a request is received, timeline is dependent on the new user completing the necessary requirements (e-Forms, training, etc.). IT takes approximately 5-10 working days to set-up a new user account. After that time, the user needs to complete the required training. Access is granted the day after training is completed and proved proficient.

If you did not receive a confirmation email within two business days of completing your training, please contact the UCLA HealthLink team.
