You can decide whether or not CRISP shares your health information. You can opt-out of CRISP at any time. If you opt-out,
doctors and nurses will not be able to search for your health records through the HIE andyour information will not be available
in an emergency. Your records will not be available for research or quality improvement. Any information that a doctor may
have seen in CRISP and entered into your medical record before you opted out will stay in your medical record with that doctor
but will not be shared through CRISP.
If you opt-out of CRISP your health care providers will not be able to see your information.
Your doctors will still be able to select CRISP to get your data sent directly to them from labs. Also, Maryland law does
not allow you to opt-out of public health reporting, such as the reporting of specific diseases to public health officials.
CRISP is required to make these reports even if you have opted out. The Maryland Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)
is also required, so you may not opt-out.
