How to transfer your medical records

Oct 13, 2021

To make your transition to Kaiser Permanente as seamless as possible, please bring the following to your first appointment:

  • A list of your allergies,
  • medications,
  • medical conditions,
  • surgeries,
  • cancer screening tests, and
  • immunizations

Please also provide a list of your current and/or recent physicians, including addresses.

Kaiser Permanente physicians can often access your electronic medical record from your previous physicians. If your Kaiser Permanente physician determines that additional information is needed, they will provide you with a Targeted Request for Medical Records Form, which you will submit to your previous physician(s) for those specific records.

If you already have your records, you can contact our Health Information Management Services (HIMS) Department by email at, or by fax at 855-902-4974.

We will only include specific documents in your Kaiser Permanente medical chart. Please also bring records to your first appointment.
