Medical Records

UAMS Medical Records

The Health Information Management Department at UAMS fulfills requests for release of medical records for all patients at UAMS.

Our staff will be happy to assist you in obtaining copies of your medical records. UAMS procedures ensure that your personal information remains private, so you will need to provide a valid authorization. You can fax, mail or personally deliver your authorization to release health information. Our Frequently Asked Questions page contains all of the information you will need to process your request.

We charge for copies if the records are requested for personal use or if the records are picked up at UAMS for use by a doctor, clinic, hospital or any other organization or business. The actual cost of copying records cannot be determined until a request is received and processed. We cannot fax records to individual patients; patients who need records can pick them up at the UAMS Release of Information office.

The charge for copies of medical records is 50 cents per page for the first 25 pages and 25 cents for each additional page.

There is no charge for obtaining copies of a patient’s medical records if the records are sent to a doctor’s office, clinic or hospital.

For more information, please contact the UAMS Release of Information office at 501-603-1520.
