Another healthcare provider (for example, a physician, nurse practitioner, or physical therapist), who is treating you can request copies of your health information at any time. It may be necessary to verify that this provider is currently treating you. The healthcare provider should submit a request in writing.
We are required by law to maintain the privacy and security of your medical record. We will not use or share your information, other than as described in our Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP), unless you tell us we can, and you may change your mind at any time.
The next of kin or personal representative of the estate may request those records. It may be necessary to verify that the patient has actually died and the identity of the next of kin.
Your record is the physical property of Emed Multispecialty Group. However, the patient controls the release of the information contained in the record. In general, you must give permission for anyone, other than a member of your healthcare team, to have access to your medical record. By law, your records may be disclosed without your permission under certain circumstances such as in response to a subpoena or court order, to certain government and regulatory bodies, to someone who holds your power of attorney, to someone you have designated as your healthcare surrogate, to another healthcare provider for continued care, and to your healthcare insurer to obtain reimbursement for your care.
By law, only the adult (age 18 or older) patient or a legally designated representative has the authority to release the information contained in a medical record about them, regardless of who is paying the bills. Legally designated representatives include court-appointed guardians or others with power of attorney for the patient. For children under age 18, only a parent or court-appointed guardian may authorize release of medical information. The next of kin or personal representative of the estate may request those records.
