1.  Standardized ROI Authorization Form

Posted 05-16-2017 17:03
I understand that AHIMA is putting together a new standardized ROI authorization form, expected to be available in May?  Is there any update on when this will be available and how I can get a copy?

Thank you,

We just discussed this at the IG Practice Council this afternoon - great question Kim; this will not be an authorization form, but rather a patient access form. This form will be for the patient's themselves to access their information. The form availability date is in July with a webinar being hosted prior by Adam Greene on June 21st. Mr. Greene will discuss the patient access model form. This will be a template organizations can use.

There will also be a whole Marketing plan about this new model form as well. Watch for further details!

The Individual Right of Access form or "Patient Request Model Form", which is different than the patient authorization form, will be available publicly at Leadership in July.  In the interim, please 'Save the Date' for our free webinar to address the difference between the Individual Right of Access and a patient's Authorization for Release.
