HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I suggest that you notified the physicians that you have no problem with releasing the records, however, the patients as individuals must provide you with a written request. And that it can be something as simple as below________________________ (Name of Patient) hereby grant permission to Name of your office to release any and all medical files to Name of the Physician. And I understand those records will be transported by Name of Staff retrieving the records.The Patient needs to sign and date it and you keep the release.
Anytime a patient wants medical records they need to sign the release. And also since they are not being released to the patient specifically such a Release as above will be in HIPAA compliance.
Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
