Why might I want to release information from my health care records?

If you are getting treatment from more than one care provider, sharing your health information among these providers can:
  • Reduce the number of times you have to repeat your health history.
  • Ensure that any services or treatments prescribed do not conflict with each other.
  • Improve coordination of services between different care providers.
  • Reduce the likelihood of mistakes in providing your care.
  • Save time and money for you and your care providers.
