The parent must either sign an authorization form or pick Memory Hack Review up the records to personally deliver them to the school. An attorney's written request for a client's records does not authorize release without a signed authorization from the patient or a court order. A university professor's request to review medical records for a study is also prohibited without a signed authorizations or a waiver approved by the IRB (Institutional Review Board). 

As with any rule, there are some exceptions that do not require releases or authorizations. Information can be shared between clinicians who are involved in the patient's care. Activities related to such health care operations as audits, credentialing and accreditation are allowed. However note that outside auditors must have a signed business associate agreement in place before accessing records.

Governmental entities may require disclosure of information related to public safety. (For instance, losses of consciousness may have to be reported to motor vehicle departments or direct threats to harm someone may have to be reported to law enforcement officials.) To avoid potential lawsuits or claims, take a conservative approach to the disclosure of information. 

Do not make assumptions. Ask patients, in advance, to identify those individuals with whom information can be shared. Place such signed consents in a prominent and accessible section of the chart. In cases of surgery, have the patient identify one person with whom the surgeon should talk after the operation. Ensure that your staff is fully briefed on current laws as to disclosure of information, particularly over the telephone - including information to other physicians.
