Contexture, Arizona’s 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 care providers are participating in the Arizona HIE, 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 can decide whether your health information is shared through the Arizona HIE. You can choose not to share your health information – this is called “opting out.” By making this choice, your health information will not be accessible to providers who use Arizona HIE’s tools.
