Patients have a right to obtain a copy of their medical record. Amedisys has contracted with MRO Corporation to provide Release of Information (ROI) services for requests for Amedisys patient medical and billing records.
Amedisys requires all requests for access to patient records to be made in writing, except in limited circumstances where the request comes from another provider or from the patient’s primary payor.

To Request Records via Form
Amedisys prefers requestors to use Amedisys forms for requests but accepts any written request that provides sufficient detail to complete the request. Please send your request (and documentation of authority, if you are acting on behalf of the patient) to the Amedisys medical records team as listed below or in person to the Amedisys location providing care. If the patient is deceased, please provide documentation to show you have authority to act on behalf of the patient (e.g., copy of death certificate and proof of executorship).
