Health Information Management Services (formerly the Medical Records Department) maintains records for all inpatient and outpatient services. Assistance with Personal Health Record can also be obtained. Access to records is protected by federal HIPAA regulations. Copies of records may be released upon receipt of written/verbal authorization of the patient (if over 18 years of age) or parent/guardian. The authorization must:
- Include the name and address of the person receiving the copies
- Be signed and dated by the patient or parent/guardian
- Be addressed to The Children's Institute of Pittsburgh

There is a charge to obtain copies of medical records if requested for private use by patients or parents. The charge is waived if the copies are forwarded to other medical providers or facilities for continuing medical care.
