How to Request a Copy of Your EHR

Albertans who would liketo view the contents of their health record have three 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, please contact Alberta Health Services Health Information Management at: Disclosure@albertahealthservices.ca or toll free 1-855-312-2265.
