A Free, Editable Electronic Communication Consent Form
Request for Non-Secure Communication Form (Email, Texting, etc.)
Before using this form, be sure to at least read these articles (although some coursework or consultation on the related risk management issues would be most appropriate):
- Clients Have the Right to Receive Unencrypted Emails (and Texts) Under HIPAA
- Even Though They Have a Right Under HIPAA To Unencrypted Emails: A Case For Only Using Secure Email and Texting With Clients
There are nuances to using this, and those nuances are more deeply covered in our online CE courses here: Digital Confidentiality Course Series. We strongly recommend researching and learning about the issues surrounding use of email and texting before using these media with clients.
