Recorded Office Visits – What providers should know

Did you know that patients can record their office visits? Patients may choose to do so to help them remember important details about their visit or to share the information with their family.  The legality of recorded visits depends on the state where you practice. Oregon and Washington states are “All Party consent” states which means that all parties must consent to being recorded. Idaho, Utah and Colorado are “Single Party consent” states which means the patient can record their visit without your knowledge. An August 2017 JAMA article provides further information.
