How do I sign up to share my health information with Tiger Institute Health Alliance members and partner health care organizations?

10/21/13 | Patient FAQ

If you are a patient at a Tiger Institute Health Alliance member organization, you will be notified that they are participating in health information exchange.  Your information will automatically be shared so if you wish to participate there is no action required on your part.  If you do not want to participate, ask your provider about completing a form to opt-out of the health information exchange.  Please understand that if you opt-out of the health information exchange you will limit your health care providers’ ability to provide the best care for you.  By opting out of the health information exchange you accept the risks associated with that decision.  Your health information will continue to be shared (without your specific authorization) among providers and health plans through other means, such as mail, fax or secure e-mail.  In other words, opting out of the health information exchange will not prevent your providers from seeing your complete medical record.
