Where is my own personal health data? How can I make sense of it and whether I’ve gotten quality care?
The information at PatientPremier is completely anonymous and is not connected to your personal information. Your personal health information is located with your healthcare providers. You do have the right to review and receive a copy of your own medical and billing records according to the HIPAA Privacy rule. There may be fees associated with copying, printing and mailing your records.
The original medical record may actually be the property of your physician’s office or health system. The document, Who Owns My Data, from Healthinfolaw.org, a project of George Washington Universities Hirsch Health Law and Policy Program and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation breaks down medical records ownership law by state.
