CONSENT TO OBTAIN PATIENT MEDICATION HISTORY
Patient medication history is a list of prescription medicines that our practice providers or other providers have prescribed for you. Pharmacies and health insurers are sources of this history.
The information collected is stored in the practice EMR and becomes part of your personal medical record. Medication history is very important in helping healthcare providers treat your symptoms and to avoid potentially dangerous drug interactions.
It is vital that you and your provider discuss ALL of your medications to insure that your medication history is 100%. All over-the-counter drugs, supplements or herbal remedies should be reported to your provider as they may not be included in the prescription history.
I give my permission to allow my healthcare provider to obtain my medication history from my pharmacy, my health plans, and my other healthcare providers.
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)
HIPAA (HIPAA: Acronym that stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, a US law designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients’ medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other health care providers) requires doctors’ offices and other health care providers to protect the privacy of your personal health information. Personal health information (PHI) is “individually identifiable health information” held or transmitted by a covered entity or its business associate, in any form or medium, whether electronic, on paper, or oral.
