Patient Request Model Form Available

If you are covered entity under HIPAA, your patients have a right to access their protected health information (PHI) such as clinical records. The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has developed a model Patient Request for Health Information form to assist patients and providers in understanding and complying with patients “individual right of access” to their information. This form is not required by HIPAA but is a template for provider use that can be customized to fit your needs.
