Miami Valley Hospital (MVH) maintains a confidential medical record for every patient. Your medical record contains complete information about all treatment and care you have received at MVH.
While all MVH medical records and their contents are the property of the hospital, you have the right to view your medical record and can do so by requesting a copy or by making an appointment with the Medical Records/Health Information Management Services Department to come in and review your record in person.
All patient health care information at MVH is confidential. Medical records cannot be released to any person without the permission of the patient or the patient's legally authorized representative (unless allowed by law).
To release your medical record to another individual or organization or review your record yourself, you must use the required Authorization for Release of Medical Information/Patient Access Form. If, after reviewing your records, you feel a change needs to be made, you may use the Amendment Request Form to request a change.
