Requests for Medical Records of Deceased Patients

Requests for medical records of deceased patients require a letter of authority in addition to your signed request. The letter of authority is given to the executor of a person's estate by the Probate Court upon their death. Releasing records to anyone other than the executor is illegal, as stated in Michigan Court Law 600.2157. Please also include your phone number in case we need to contact you for additional information concerning your request.

Third-Party Requests for ePHI

Michigan Medicine is able to provide third parties with direct access to our EMR through technologies such as the EpicCare Link Provider Portal. Requests will be reviewed on an individual basis. A valid reason for a request should be established (such as requests from a payor for payment purposes). A valid Business Associate Agreement (BAA) and/or and authorization to release from the relevant patient(s) may be required.
