How to request my health data

How to Request My Health Data (ePHI)

You have a right to request your own health data and to decide who it's shared with. 

Patients also have a responsibility to protect the privacy and confidentiality of their ePHI once it has been delivered to the destination of their choice. HIPAA does not apply to individuals, most patient health record systems, and personal apps.
