Healthcare Proxy & Release of Authorization Forms
This is a resource with forms and links you may need as a patient of MelroseWakefield Healthcare.
Please note: MelroseWakefield Healthcare was formerly known as Hallmark Health. We are in the process of updating these documents.
A healthcare proxy should be established so that your “healthcare agent” can make medical decisions for you if you become incapable of making your own medical decisions (e.g. due to unconsciousness, dementia or other mental limitations).
Release of Authorization Form
The Federal Privacy Law (HIPAA) enacted on 4/14/03 requires certain elements to be contained on all authorizations for disclosure of protected health information (your medical records).
Medication errors can be prevented if your medication records are accurate, up-to-date and accessible to your physician. Since it’s not always easy to remember what medications you are taking, we are providing you with a framework for listing your medications before you come for your visit or surgery.
Birth Certificate Request
You can order a replacement birth certificate from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Registry of Vital Records and Statistics.
