Your Medical Record… Delivered!
Your Doctor Gets Your Images After Your Test/Study
Your medical records are delivered to physicians who practice at St. Luke’s through a secure website accessed only by medical personnel so that you never have to worry about picking up your own radiology images or “films.”
Instead, your doctor gets high-quality digital images on a computer screen in the privacy of the office. And, with the assistance of fellowship-trained radiologists, your doctor can tell you what the results mean for your health.
There may be times when your doctor asks that you bring your records and images to your next appointment. We can deliver this information directly to your physician prior to your appointment if you contact us in advance.
Requesting Your Record
To make it easy for you, you can download and print our Medical Information Release form or obtain a form from any patient care unit at a St. Luke’s University Health Network facility.
You can request records from St. Luke’s Medical Records Department four ways:
We will send your records back to you upon receipt of the signed record request form.
For requests other than patient care, you will receive a bill from an independent third-party vendor. St. Luke’s charges only the state regulated charge for copies of your medical record.
To provide the best service we can, please allow some processing time for the following records:
- X-rays on CD – 48 hours
- Medical records – 2 – 5 days
- Mammogram images to be mailed – 1 – 2 weeks
The Medical Records department will work with you and your doctor to get your records where they need to be for your individual situation.
