Thanks for your comment. Patients do indeed have the right to access their health information. If what you say is true, then those hospital and/or healthcare providers are in violation of laws governing "access to protected health information" as described in the HIPAA Survival Guide at http://hipaasurvivalguide.com/hipaa-information.html.

Take a look. Hope it helps.

Of course, but most of the time hospital and healthcare providers are not allowing those patients to see their medical records.
