Electronic Request for Records
Fairfield Medical Center now offers an Online Patient Record Request tool for the following individuals to request patient records:
- Patients requesting their own records
- Parents of minor patients requesting records
- Caregivers acting on behalf of a patient (i.e. Power of Attorney)
The Online tool verifies your identity by asking for a photo of your driver’s license, which can be taken via webcam or smartphone. There is not an additional charge to use this service.
Please note, Chrome, Safari and Firefox are the recommended browsers for this application. If you encounter any issues with your electronic request, please call 740-687-8053, option 5.

Requests are typically completed in the order that they are received. We are required by law to send your information within 30 days of receipt of your request, with the allowance of one 30-day extension.
