I submitted a signed online form requesting:
- A printed copy of My Entire Legal Medical Records for my 22-hour admission at DHMC for an open appendectomy for acute appendicitis with early peritonitis but no perforation. I received an invoice for $15.08 from HealthPort, a Record Retrieval Service, for 26 pages at $0.50 per page plus a $2.08 shipping fee.
- Electronic copies in PDF and CDA format via my email address and downloaded on to a thumb drive.
- Electronic access through a Patient Portal (i.e. the Epic Systems “MyChart” tethered PHR)
[The data] was complete, but displayed as fragmented data, very hard to read even for an experienced clinician.
