Request Parkwest Medical Center Medical Records In 3 Steps
Federal and state governments have stipulated regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which gives you the right to access your medical records whenever you need them. Also, under the same regulations, hospitals are expected to protect every patient's medical record as their information can be easily exploited.
Parkwest Medical Center has an elaborate system that allows patients to access their medical records online or print. However, patients trying to access their medical records require proper authorization, pay the necessary charges, and provide photo identification.
The bureaucratic procedure may be frustrating, especially if you have no idea who to contact at Parkwest Medical Center to get your medical records. But, not to worry, because DoNotPay has a Request Medical Records product that can help you send in your request right away and get access to your medical records within the shortest time.
