The Guide to Getting & Using Your Health Records

An Office of the National Coordinator published web guide

This newly published web guide from ONC titled, "The Guide to Getting & Using Your Health Records: The steps, tips, and tools you’ll need to get, check, and use your health record" helps to instruct consumers on how to get their health record from healthcare providers, their rights to those records, and some specific ways in which to get a hold of that information.

From the ONC website: "The Guide to Getting & Using Your Health Records is for patients, parents, and caregivers who want to get their health records. A health record (also known as a medical record) is a written account of a person’s health history, including appointment notes, prescriptions, treatments, tests, and vaccines. It’s also for people who need the record of someone they represent or care for, like a child, elderly parent, or an adult with a disability."

The site also includes activities such as

  • a HIPAA 101 quick quiz,
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Troubleshooting Tips
  • information on the use of Health Apps
  • and guidance on how this information can be useful to you
