Accessing Our Own Health Records is Our Right


You have a right to get an electronic copy of all of your healthcare records from every doctor, hospital, and health service provider. It’s critical for your health and that of family members in your care. It’s also key to transforming our healthcare system for better quality and increased affordability.

Read below how to get involved and support the Get My Health Data movement.

“Tracers” Ask for Records


As part of the Get My Health Data movement, Dr. Farzad Motashari – the former National Healthcare IT Coordinator at ONC – is encouraging all patients to become “tracers” by asking their doctors/hospitals for an electronic copy of their data.

Carebox is ideal for supporting “tracers” – and everything related to our healthcare data record collection. To become a “tracer”, just set up a Carebox account and ask your doctor/hospital to Carebox It!

See below for more information.
