Health Information Services (Medical Records)
Welcome to University of Missouri Health Care’s Health Information Services Department. We specialize in the management of your health care information, and we value the confidentiality of your information.
There is so much more to our department than storing the record which documents your clinical information. We keep all the documents and records organized and available for your physician’s review. We ensure the documentation of your care is appropriate for federal and state guidelines and billing purposes. We make sure copies of the records that document your health care are available for any physician you choose, your insurance company, your attorney or for your personal use.
We welcome your comments as we endeavor to serve you better.

What is a Medical Record?
A medical record is documentation of medical and health care services provided to a patient at the directions of a physician, nurse or other caregiver. These records include documentation of medical observations and opinions by these professionals as well as the treatment and diagnostic documentation, such as X-rays, EKGs and laboratory work. These records can be a paper record, electronic record or both. The medical record documenting your health care is the property of MU Health Care.
