Medical Records


At Children’s, we offer several different means to access or provide others access to your child’s medical records. With your permission, we can help you:

  • request records from the state in paper form.
  • login to childrens.com.
  • release records to a third party, such as your child’s pediatrician or insurance carrier.

Medical records can only be accessed by a patient over 18 years of age, parent of a minor patient, or legal guardian of a minor patient. If legal guardianship changes or other circumstances apply, please bring a copy of all paperwork to Medical Affairs so they can setup correct access rights.

Paper Medical Records

The Health Information Management (HIM) Department at Children’s can help parents or legal guardians obtain their child’s medical records. Families can view records after 2009 online. To see records from 2009 prior, please request paper records to be pulled.

Please note: The State of Texas charges a fee of $42.05 for the first 10 pages of medical records and allows 15 days to process requests for medical records

To request paper records, please print the Authorization to Release Protected Health Information form, complete it and then mail it or deliver it in person to the HIM Department at Children’s Medical Center Dallas (1st floor of the hospital, just past the Emergency Department) or to the Plano (pavilion side of the hospital) campus.
