Good Morning,
I am hoping you can help me find the answer to our HIPAA question. We are receiving request for medical records where the requester has obtained the patient's signature electronically. We generally verify the patient signature by comparing what we have in the chart. Do you know if electronic signature for release of medical records is HIPAA compliant?
