A medical authorization release form acts as a consent that will authorize your physician to refer to your medical record for proper treatment. He may diagnose you based on your medical history to prevent any complications that may arise if you’re allergic to certain drugs. A medical authorization also has two purposes: to check your medical history so you can get proper medical treatment, or to authorize treatment to a child or relative if any one of them gets sick.
Regarding a patient’s medical history, it’s very important that there is a correct diagnosis when seeking treatment. It’s equally important that medicines being administered will not react negatively on the patient’s system, which may have the potential to worsen the condition that could prove fatal. Doctors, however, cannot just access a patient’s medical history freely without his or her consent. It’s for this reason that a medical authorization release form needs to be used to access the medical record.
For users who may want to use any of our forms can do this by filling out one of the samples offered here giving permission to your doctor or the hospital to access your medical history. Since your medical record may be located in another hospital or medical facility, you may need to supply the necessary information on the form like your date of birth, maiden name (for married females) and Social Security number. You may also write the name of your doctor or the hospital you authorize to access your medical history under the line that states, ” I authorize the release of my medical history to….” You may also want to modify the form to your own liking.

On the medical authorization release form, you may choose to write a short but detailed summary of your medical history, especially if you’ve had any past operations in any part of your body, including the medicines you have been taking. This will give the doctor or hospital a general idea of your specific medical condition and will be very useful in the event your condition may suddenly worsen and you become unresponsive while waiting for your doctor to receive your medical history.
