Your Choices

The CORHIO health information exchange offers many benefits to patients, but your participation is voluntary — you get to choose whether you want your information included.

If your health care providers are participating in the CORHIO health information exchange, they are required to notify you of their participation. When you visit a participating provider you will receive a notice, which may accompany the provider's HIPAA privacy notification.

You Decide

If you visit a doctor's office, hospital or clinic that is participating in the HIE and do not want your health information included, simply tell the doctor or other health care provider and sign an "opt out" form. We encourage you to first talk to your doctor about this decision or to review our FAQs about health information exchange.

By opting out of the CORHIO health information exchange, emergency room doctors and other medical professionals may not have access to your complete medical information which could save your life in some situations.

You can also "opt-out" directly with CORHIO:

  1. Print this CORHIO Health Information Exchange Opt-Out Form: English PDF or Spanish PDF

  2. Fill out the form completely and have a notary public verify your information and sign it. This is required for your protection and to verify identity.

    If you are acting as a guardian or authorized representative for a patient over the age of 18, CORHIO requires documentation of this relationship to be submitted CORHIO along with the notarized form. If you have questions about this documentation, please contact CORHIO.

  3. Mail the original form to:
    Attn.: Service Desk - HIE Request
    4500 Cherry Creek South Drive, Suite 820
    Denver, CO 80246

If you have previously opted-out, you may opt back in at any time. If you visit a doctor's office, hospital or clinic that is participating in the HIE, tell the doctor or other health care provider and sign an "opt in" form.
