accessible through a health information organization by providing notice as explained
in the health information organization's notice of health information practices. If an individual provides a notice of opt out to a health care provider, the health
care provider must promptly provide that notice to the health information organization
in the manner provided in the health information organization's policies. A decision to opt out of having individually identifiable health information accessible
through the health information organization may be changed by an individual at any
time by providing notice as explained in the health information organization's notice
of health information practices. Individuals who previously elected to opt out of having a particular health care
provider's data accessible through the health information organization will be treated
by the health information organization as having elected to opt out under this section
within ninety days after August 27, 2019.
