  How to Request Your Medical Records. Most practices or facilities will ask you to fill out a form to request your medical records. This request form can usually be collected at the office or delivered by fax, postal service, or email. An EHR system is capable of tracking consultations, tests, referrals, and lab results that help reduce medical errors in this regard. EHR software can alert to pending and completed lab tests and specify whether or not results fell within normal ranges, ensuring that nothing slips through the cracks.

  Medical record documentation is a critical component of quality reporting for health care plans. Audits and reviews are performed for the collection of HEDIS (Health Information Data and Information Set) information and for the review of Medicare Risk Adjustment payment validations.

Rather, the errors were in (i) weak linkages among computer systems, (ii) insufficient safeguards against patient misidentification, and (iii) poor hospital work-processes.
