Medical Records Requests
The Urban Inter-Tribal Center of Texas provides release of information services for patients who request medical records. Patient medical records are available in adherence with all state and federal regulations for the release of information. There are no fees to obtain copies of medical records.
Access Your Medical Records Online
Some of your health information is easily accessible by signing up for PHR (Personal Health Record) – a secure, online portal to your health record. Past appointments, after appointment instructions and most test results are available in PHR. Through PHR you are also able to send secure messages to our clinic staff about anything you would normally call about – appointments, medication requests, or questions. Sign-up online for a PHR – Personal Health Record account at http://phr.ihs.gov. You can also sign-up during your next clinic visit by asking the Clinic Front Desk staff.
