Medical Records

Request Your Medical Records

At Indiana University Health Tipton Hospital, medical records are maintained for a period of time specified by state and federal regulations.

A patient or legal guardian of a patient may request copies of his/her medical records Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. The department is closed on federal holidays. Proper authorization for the release of medical records is required.

The Health Information Services department is responsible for ensuring record completeness, accurate coding for billing purposes, transcription of reports reflecting services rendered to the patient and maintaining the highest level of patient confidentiality related to health information.

Release of Medical Records

In order to release medical records, a form must be completed and signed by the patient or authorized representative. A form needs to be completed when a patient desires information from their medical record released to another party, i.e. an attorney, physician or insurance company. In addition, it also needs to be completed and signed when a patient wishes to receive copies of their own medical record information. It is important that the form be filled out in its entirety and signed and dated by the patient. A copy of a driver’s license (or photo ID) will be made to verify identity.

Upon completion of the form, it must be presented or mailed to the Health Information Services department. If mailed, please include a copy of your driver's license (or photo ID) and mail to:

IU Health Tipton Hospital
ATTN: Health Information Services (ROI)
1000 S. Main Street
Tipton, IN 46072

If you wish to request records in person, please stop at the Guest Relations desk in the South Lobby (inside entrance 1) and explain why you are there. A Health Information Services associate will meet you and work with you to complete the form and prepare your request.
