Health Information Management Services (HIMS) plays an important role in protecting the confidentiality and security of patient information.

Located both at KEMH and MWI, our teams serve as a resource for patient medical information. We support the needs of medical and administrative staff for direct patient care and operational needs.

In addition, we serve individuals in the community by providing personal health information for many uses:

  • Transfer and travel records
  • Verification of service for insurance reimbursement
  • Legal hearings
  • Documentation of patient Living Will and Organ Donation decisions.

An authorisation form to release information is required, and a small fee for photocopies is assessed based on the volume of material needed. We require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice to comply with requests. The release form, proof of identity and receipt of payment are required when picking up photocopied records.

If you have questions, are unsure what medical records you need, or would like more information regarding the process of receiving your medical records, please contact us by calling 239-1483 during normal business hours.
