Health Information Management

BID-Needham's Health Information Management Department is dedicated to the proper maintenance of your medical records as well as to keeping your personal health information (PHI) private and secure in accordance with federal and state regulations. 



Patients have a right to review or, for a fee, obtain copies of their medical records. To obtain a copy of a medical record, the patient is required to complete an authorization. There is no charge for records delivered directly to another health care provider. The requestor must be the patient or a patient's guardian/legal representative.

HIM Department is located at:
73 Chestnut Street
Needham MA 02492
(directly opposite the Needham Fire Department.) 

Mailing address:
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham
Health Information Management Department
148 Chestnut Street

The average turnaround time to obtain copies of medical records is approximately 7 to 14 days depending on the number of records requested (one visit versus several visits) and the location of the records requested (some records are secured at an offsite location).
