Medical Records, or Health Information Management (HIM) as it is now known, is responsible for your complete medical record once you have been discharged from the hospital.
As of November 13, 2023, requests for medical records are processed by Covenant Health’s Centralized Release of Information department.
If you need to retrieve medical records, these options are available:
- Request in Writing: Request an authorization form at the Covenant Health facility’s registration area. You will need to show valid identification. Your request/authorization will be forwarded to Centralized Release of Information. The request will be processed and returned via email, mail or fax as noted on the authorization form.
- Request Electronic Authorization: Call the Release of Information Department at 865-374-5269. A customer representative will email an authorization form that you can fill out and submit electronically.
