Access to Health Records
How do I access a copy of my health records?
Information is released only as authorized by the patient, legal representative or as authorized by law. You have a right, by law to access your own hospital health record either by viewing or requesting a copy.
You can obtain a copy or your health record by completing the Request for Access to Personal Health Record form or submitting a written request to the Health Records Department.
What if I am inquiring about records for a deceased patient?
To obtain records for individuals who are deceased, authorization is required from the Executor of the estate. Proof of executorship or legal signing authority must be submitted with the request.
Does it cost anything to request my health record?
There is an administration cost for requests for access to personal health records. Please contact the Health Records department for our Fee Schedule.
In accordance with the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), Temiskaming Hospital has up to 30 days to process a request.
