Medical Records Retrieval

We will request and obtain all the medical records your firm needs from any healthcare provider.

Medical records are any electronic or physical documents or images which are created or collected for a patient by a physician or a hospital/healthcare provider, or a caregiver such as a home healthcare nurse or therapist. Increasingly medical records are moving to digital formats.

Law firms and attorneys require copies of a client’s medical records to pursue a claim or civil action for injuries caused as a result of negligence or medical malpractice.

What is involved in Retrieving of Medical Records?

Requesting, Tracking, and Retrieving Medical Records

A structured process needs to be followed for obtaining medical records and bills from healthcare providers.  The process should include:

  1. Determination of the medical records and bills that are required.
  2. Provide a HIPAA compliant Release of Information to request these records from the healthcare provider.
  3. Record and track all correspondence and communications with the provider.
  4. Several phone calls may be needed to follow-up to obtain these records.
  5. Review all of the records obtained to ensure that all of the records were provided.
