Medical Records

(Health Information Management)

All of your care will be organized through the use of a safe and secure electronic health record (EHR) system, so that you and every member of your MLKCH healthcare team has immediate access to your complete medical history. Our electronic health record system allows for the most coordinated and efficient care.

You may also authorize other people outside of MLKCH to have access, should you choose. As a patient you have the right to request your records in any form, electronically or as hard copies. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule dictates the safety, security and privacy of all medical records.

Should a patient need to request a copy of their medical record, s/he may begin the process by printing the Authorization for Use or Disclosure of Patient Health Information (click the box to the right). Please complete, sign and fax this form to 424-338-8965.

Patients may also begin the process to request a copy of their medical record by calling
