Get Your EHR

How to Request a Copy of Your EHR

Albertans who would liketo view the contents of their health record have 3 options.

Option 1

Your first step should be to visit a participating health professional with whom you have a current care relationship (such as your family doctor or pharmacist) and ask to view or receive a copy of your record. They may require you to complete a Request to Access Health Information form and pay a $25 processing fee to process this information.

Option 2

If you do not have a current care relationship with a participating health professional under Option 1, but have a current care relationship with Alberta Health Services (AHS), for example having recently received treatment in an AHS hospital, you may request a copy of your record from AHS.

This request may be submitted informally, but in some circumstances you may be required to submit a formal request.

For more information about this option and how to proceed with a request, contact AHS Health Information Management at: Disclosure@albertahealthservices.ca or toll free 1-855-312-2265 .

Option 3

If you do not have a current care relationship with a participating health professional under Option 1, or with AHS under Option 2, you may approach the Ministry of Health to request a copy of your records. Submit the request:
