The Chesapeake Regional Information System for Our Patients (CRISP)
We may share information that we obtain or create about you with other health care providers or other health care entities, such as your health plan or health insurer, as permitted by law, through the Chesapeake Regional Information System for Our Patients, Inc. (CRISP), a regional Internet-based health information exchange. For example, information about your past medical care and current medical conditions and medications can be available to us or to your non-Johns Hopkins primary care physician or hospital, if they participate in CRISP as well. Exchange of health information can provide faster access, better coordination of care and assist providers and public health officials in making more informed decisions. You may opt out of CRISP and disable access to your health information available through CRISP by contacting CRISP at 1-877-952-7477 or completing and submitting an Opt-Out form to CRISP by mail, fax, or through their website at crisphealth.org. Even if you opt-out of CRISP, public health reporting and Controlled Dangerous Substances information, as part of the Maryland Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), will still be available to providers as permitted by law. Not all of the Johns Hopkins organizations specified at the end of this Notice participate in CRISP; your Johns Hopkins health care provider can provide information as to whether or not it participates in CRISP.
