If you’re a licensed medical practitioner,
you may be asked to release a patient’s medical record
– and you don’t want to violate HIPAA.
If you’re a patient,
you may wish to have your medical records sent to another practitioner on your medical team.
For either case, The HIPAA Medical Records Release Form is the document you’ll want to use.
what is the HIPAA medical records release form?
The HIPAA Medical Records Release Form a simple document signed by a patient to give consent for the release of medical records or health information. It spells out exactly which medical records and health information may be disclosed, how long the information may be shared, and to whom – and it also includes any information that the patient does NOT want to be released.
Because HIPAA protects the confidentiality of medical records, the patient signs this form to allow for the lawful release of his/her/their medical information.
The HIPAA Medical Records Release Form helps you:
Build trust when patients know that you will keep their sensitive PHI protected and you’ll respect their wishes. Your patients know that you have boundaries, and that you respect theirs.
Follow the law which shows respect for yourself, patients, and the law. Your energetic frequency rises because you’re acting with a clear conscience, and doing things properly. You honor yourself as you honor your patients.
Raise your professionalism by showing that you are serious about your patients – and their medical privacy.
why do you need it?
You’ll want the patient to sign a HIPAA Medical Records Release Form BEFORE you transfer any medical records or notes to any other practitioner or person.
