Health Information Exchange
A health information exchange (HIE) allows your health care providers to use secure, electronic methods to share your most recent medical information with participating doctors’ offices, hospitals, labs, radiology centers and other providers participating in your care. The purpose is to give each of your participating caregivers access to the most up-to-date information available.
Patients are automatically set to opt in to HIE, meaning information will be shared with participating physicians and health care providers unless you provide instructions to opt out. If you wish to opt out of participating in UCSF HIE, you can easily do so when checking in for your next visit to UCSF, or complete the UCSF Health Information Exchange Patient Opt-out Form and mail it back to UCSF Medical Center Medical Records at:
