(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
Patients may also begin the process to request a copy of their medical
