Electronic Request for Records

Customer Healthcare now offers an Online Patient Record Request tool for the following individuals to request patient records:

  • Patients requesting their own records
  • Parents of minor patients requesting records
  • Caregivers acting on behalf of a patient (i.e. Power of Attorney)

The Online tool verifies your identity by asking for a photo of your driver's license, which can be taken via webcam or smartphone. There is no additional charge to use this service.

Please note, Chrome, Safari and Firefox are the recommended browsers for this application. If you encounter any issues with your electronic request and/or are looking for an update on a submitted request, please call our Release of Information Call Center at (804) 828-4423 and press option 5 to speak to a live person during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm).
