HIE: THE NEXT STEPS TO RECEIVE
1. Distribute the Notice of Health Information Practices (Notice) to patients. Obtain a signature from each patient acknowledging receipt of the Notice. This signature can be obtained on any form, including the healthcare provider's HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices or conditions of admission or treatment form. The form must reference the healthcare provider's participation in the HIE and must state that the patient has received, read and understands the Notice.
2. Provide the Opt Out Form to any patient who wants to opt out or the Opt Back In Form to change a previous opt out decision. A patient can opt out or opt back in at any time.
3. Provide the Health Information Request Form to any patient who wants to request a copy of his or her health information that is available through the HIE or who wants a list of persons who have accessed his or her health information through the HIE in the last three years.
If a patient opts out of making some or all of his or her health information accessible through the HIE, then no one will have access to that information through the HIE, even in an emergency.
