The Clinical Center Office of Communications and Media Relations uses an NIH approved secure file sharing service called BOX to allow for electronic submission of communications consent forms by patients who are participating in media or external communications opportunities or giving permission for their care providers to speak about their case/care in relation to those communications opportunities.
If you have any questions about how to complete the form or any questions about the release process, please call us at 301-496-2563.
Who should sign?
If the patient is 18 years of age or older, the patient is the only person who is permitted to sign the form. If the patient is under the age of 18, the parent or guardian must sign the form.
There are situations in which this general rule does not apply. For consultation regarding who is authorized to sign the form, contact the Health Information Management Department at 1-888-790-2133.
How do I sign?
Hand-written or electronic signature is required in order for a request to be processed. Unfortunately, digital signatures enabled by certificates cannot be accepted.
