Any request for amendments will be reviewed by HIM and the provider who created the record for approval or denial of the requested changes. HIM staff will respond to the patient/representative in writing no later than 60 days advising the outcome. If the HIM Department is unable to act on the request for amendment within 60 days, it may extend the time by no more than 30 days, provided the patient/representative receives a written statement of the reason for the delay and the date the HIM Department will complete its action on the request.
