Request your Medical Records
While you are at the Health Center, a technical document recording every aspect of your care is maintained. A medical record is used for care management, quality assurance review, financial reimbursement, education, public health, accreditation certification and licensure. Providers of care must keep records to document the services they rendered. While the medical record is the physical property of the Health Center, the information in the medical record belongs to you.
There are very specific rules regarding the authorization to release your medical record. If you need your medical record, the Health Center asks that your request be:
- In writing to the address below
- Or download this form authorizing Sarah Bush Lincoln to release your health information and send to address below, or fax to: 217-258-2144
