PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION (PHI)
With the emergence of cloud-based electronic health records systems, accessing and requesting your medical records - referred to in HIPAA terminology as Protected Health Information - has never been easier or more straightforward.

• Message Front Office
You can view / download chart summaries and clinical summaries from the Patient Portal. After you login to your Portal account, click on "Records" (or "View Records"), select either "Chart Summary" or "Clinical Summary", and then specify a date range.
*If you are an established patient who started with our practice prior to April of 2020, the above may not apply.*
Under all circumstances, you can submit a request to have your complete medical record, a specific portion of your medical record, or any correspondence (i.e. lab orders, school orders, and school excuses) made available to view / download / print via the Patient Portal. After you login to your Portal account, click on "Ask a Question", select "General Q&A" from the subject line drop-down menu, and then provide all relevant details. If you need the practice to forward your records to another physician's office, be sure to provide the physician's name and fax number in your message. This will serve as a written authorization for the release of Protected Health Information (PHI), as it attaches directly to the patient chart.
