How it Works & FAQ

How to Request Your Records

Requesting your medical records is easy. Here are the steps:

  1. Create an account on our website.
    This allows you to log back in and track the status of your request.
  2. Submit the patient records release form.
    You must be logged into an account to submit this form. You must submit the form for each individual you’re requesting records for (for example, if you have three children you’re requesting records for, you must submit the form 3 times, one for each child).
  3. Submit payment for your requests. 
    Records requests fees are $25 to cover the cost of processing.

Records will be sent within 15 business days following completion of the steps above. You can track the progress of your request at anytime on your account dashboard.

It will take up to 15 business days for you to receive your records. If more than 15 days have elapsed since you submitted your request, please use the form below to contact us. If it has not been 15 days yet, we sincerely appreciate your patience as we work on your request.

There are two options for delivery of records. You will receive either a download link via email (Secure, Encrypted, & HIPAA Compliant) with your records or you will be mailed an encrypted thumb drive (Encrypted, Password Protected, & HIPAA Compliant) with your records on it. You can choose the option that you prefer. All files will be electronic.

You’ll be mailed an encrypted and password protected thumb drive containing your records. To retrieve your information from the thumb drive, you will need to input a unique password. The password to access your thumb drive will always be included in the package or envelope we send to you. Please always check any package you receive from us carefully to ensure you’ve retrieved everything that we sent.

At Desert River Solutions, we use secure, encrypted software to transfer your medical records to you electronically via email. We will only use the email address that you specify in your records request. The email we send will contain a secured link to access your records. 

No. You can use your regular email address to request your records via email and receive the secure email. Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, AOL, MSN, iCloud, etc. will all work. You do not have to have a specific email provider to receive your records via email securely.

We strongly recommend using an email address that only you (the requester) personally has access to. Please do not use a shared or public email address.

The secure, encrypted link that we email to you will expire 30 days after you receive it. When you receive your download link, we strongly recommend downloading and saving the files locally on your computer as soon as possible.

If it has been less than a year since you requested your records, please use the form below to contact us and ask for a new link. If it has been over a year since you requested your records, you will need to submit a new release form and start the process again.
