Reminder: Documenting patient consent

When uploading a patient health record to cdmNet, it is important that the person uploading the record obtains informed consent from the patient.

Obtaining Patient Consent
Obtaining Patient Consent

This consent covers the collection and sharing of health information, as well as the creation and review of care plans, health assessments and referrals using cdmNet. It is important that the patient understands they are having an electronic health record created and are informed about what will happen with the information in the record. Obtaining informed consent is a fundamental component of best practice in privacy. Please refer to the cdmNet Consent page for more information.

To assist you to explain cdmNet to the patient, you can use the cdmNet patient information leaflet, accessible from the information icon next to the patient consent box.
