How can I obtain copies of my health record?

Contact your doctors’ offices or the health information management or medical records staff at each facility where you received treatment. Ask for an "authorization for the release of information" form. Complete the form and return it to the facility as directed. Most facilities do charge for copies. The fee can only include the cost of copying (including supplies and labor), as well as postage if you request the copy to be mailed. It can take up to 60 days to receive your medical records, so ask when you can expect to receive the information you requested.

My physician is no longer practicing. Where can I locate the health record maintained about me?

Even if your physician moved, retired, or died, his or her estate has an obligation to retain your records, including immunization records, for a period defined by federal and state law. Often this retention period is 10 years following your last visit (or until a child/patient is 21 years old). You may be able to locate your records by contacting:

Your physician’s partners

  • The health information manager at a nearby hospital where the physician practiced
  • The local medical society
  • The state medical association
  • The state department of health

Why would I want to keep a Personal Health Record (PHR)?

Your health information is scattered across many different providers and facilities. Keeping your own complete, updated and easily accessible health record means you can play a more active role in your healthcare. You wouldn’t write checks without keeping a check register. The same level of responsibility makes sense for your healthcare.

A patient’s own PHR offers a different perspective, showing all your health-related information. It can include any information that you think affects your health, including information that your doctor may not have, such as your exercise routines, dietary habits, or glucose levels if you are diabetic.

Also, the PHR is a critical tool that enables you to partner with your providers. It can reduce or eliminate duplicate procedures or processes, which saves healthcare dollars, your time, and the provider’s time. And the information you gather gives you knowledge that assists your preparation for appointments.

With your PHR, you can:

  • Knowledgeably discuss your health with healthcare providers
  • Provide information to new caregivers
  • Have easy access to your health information while traveling
  • Access your information when your doctor’s office is closed
  • Record your progress toward specific health-related goals
  • Refer to physician instructions, prescriptions, allergies, medications, insurance claims, etc.
  • Track appointments, vaccinations, and numerous other wellness healthcare services

Should my Medzingo PHR include emergency contact information?

Yes. For the best possible care in the case of an emergency, you should include emergency contact information in your PHR.

Can I access my Medzingo PHR through my Smartphone?


When can healthcare providers share information from my Medzingo PHR with my family without my consent?

If you are in critical condition and need medical treatment, your family or caregiver must determine and/or approve the treatment you receive. So access to your medical history will help them make the best decision.

Do I have the right to see my child's health record?

Yes, generally parents do have access to their minor children’s health record. There are three circumstances where parents do not have access:

  • When the minor is the one who consents to care and the consent of the parent is not required under law;
  • If the minor obtains care at the guidance of a court or person appointed by court; and
  • When a parent agrees that the minor and healthcare provider have a confidential relationship.

However, access to parents may be permitted in these circumstances if permitted by state or other applicable laws.
