WHAT IS RELEASE OF INFORMATION?

AHIMA posted a great article explaining it all:

“Exchange of health information is an essential function to the provision of high-quality and cost-effective healthcare. The information should be complete and timely for its intended purpose. While this sounds straightforward, often it is not an easy task in the complex medical and legal environment in which the healthcare community operates. Release of information (ROI) in healthcare is critical to the quality of the continuity of care provided to the patient. It also plays an important role in billing, reporting, research, and other functions.

Many laws and regulations govern how, when, what, and to whom protected health information is released. The HIPAA privacy rule contains specific requirements for the management of health information to ensure confidentiality of the individual; the rule attempts to balance the need for prompt and informed delivery of healthcare services with that of protecting the individual.”
