Obtaining Your Hospital Visit Medical Records
To receive a copy of your child’s medical record, an authorization to release medical information must be signed and dated by the patient’s legal guardian. Authorization forms can be obtained in the Health Information Management (HIM) Office at Dell Children’s or downloaded from this page. Completed forms can be submitted in person at Dell Children’s Medical Center or by mail only.
You can receive your child’s medical records via mail or email. For faster service and minimal fees, we recommend you choose to receive the medical records electronically. To do so, select “Electronic Release of Records” as the purpose of request on the Authorization Release Form.
It can take approximately 2 weeks to receive copies of your medical records. Please note that some records may not be available for up to 30 days after discharge. Requests for all records can delay processing and become very costly. We recommend requesting a minimum set of records. If you need help deciding what records to request, please give us a call at 512-324-0180.
Please note there may be fees associated when requesting records. Charges, if any, are due at the time records are received. To inquire about fees, please give us a call.
The Health Information Management office only maintains records for radiology reports. For the release of x-rays or other radiology images, please contact the Imaging Department at 512-324-0140.
