Patients have the right to review or receive copies of their medical records upon request. The fastest and easiest way to obtain a copy of your medical records from South Shore Health is to submit a signed and dated Authorization to Use or Disclose Protected Information form, below. The form must be properly filled out by the patient or patient’s guardian/legal representative and mailed to the Health Information Management Department.
