Because many people have more than one health care provider, systems for sharing information among providers have been developed to prevent mistakes, coordinate care, and save time and money. Although sharing health information among care providers has many benefits, it may also present safety risks for people who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking. If you have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking, this document can help you talk with your health care provider about your situation, so that you can arrive at an informed choice about sharing your health information with other care providers. These questions also contain information about resources for advocacy, safety consultation, and other forms of support.
