What records do I need to request?

Before requesting any records, please check MyChart to see if you can access what you need. If not, consider the following types of requests:

  • General requests: If you are requesting information to help with continuing patient care or to see an overview of what care has been received, check all the pertinent boxes on the authorization form and be sure to include a date or date range.

  • Request something specific: If you need specific information, please check “other” and write in what is specifically needed on the “other” line of the authorization form. (For example, if an anesthesia report is needed, please write “Anesthesia Report” on the “other” line.)

If you are not sure what records to request, please contact the medical records department at 503-561-5750. We will do our best to assist you with your request by helping you navigate MyChart or answering questions about the authorization form.
