Release of Information

A patient, or his/her legal representative, may inspect and/or obtain a copy of their medical records, or have copies of medical records sent to another facility.

Stanford Hospital & Clinics requires a completed and signed Authorization for Release of Health Information form before releasing any documents to anyone, including the patient.  In certain cases, a patient's physician, psychologist or social worker may also be required to approve a request.

Stanford employs information exchange in certain situations.  If you have questions about this process, please feel free to contact the Health Information Management Services department directly at (650) 723-5721.
