Health Records Request
UT Health San Antonio's (UTHSA) Health Information Management Department is committed to respecting and protecting the rights of our patients and their families. Our team is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all patient records and to assist you with your health record requests.
Health records are protected health information that cannot be released to any person or organization without the consent of the patient or the patient’s legally authorized representative (unless authorized or required by law).
How to obtain your records
UTHSA provides access for patients to significant portions of their health record—including test and lab results, immunization history, after visit summaries and notes, provider messaging and more—through a patient web portal called MyChart.
For health records not available in MyChart:
