Confidentiality

Legal information you have to know

The information contained in the medical records of Concordia University Health Services is confidential. Medical information will not be shared without the consent of the patient, except if required by law (e.g., risk of suicide, child endangerment, a subpoena).

Note: personal information may be shared among Concordia University Health Services staff as required.

The patient will have to sign a Release of Information form before Concordia University Health Services communicates any medical and/or personal information or documents with people, units or institutions outside of Health Services.

A patient who requests a copy of, or information from, his/her own medical file should direct such requests to a nurse. Please note we charge a fee for these requests. Refer to medical records for more information.

Our commitment to confidentiality applies to all settings — clinical, research and administrative — in which Concordia University Health Services creates, receives, uses, processes, maintains or furnishes health information to patients.
 

Medical Records

It’s YOUR file. We take your confidentiality very seriously. 

We are happy to provide you (and only you) with a copy of your medical records. We do charge for this service and ask that you pay in advance by credit card:

  • A fixed fee of $20 for the first 20 pages and then a $0.50 fee for any additional pages

  • Additional $20 fee for archived files (files are archived after three years and kept for five years only)

How to get a copy of your medical records

You can email Health Services at healthservices.info@concordia.ca requesting your file. A nurse will then contact you and validate your identity and instruct you about the process. Payment must be made by credit card. You may ask for a complete or partial copy of your records.

Certain delays may apply depending on the size and location of your file. For mental health records, we may have to check with the psychiatrist before releasing the file.
