One of my colleagues wants to send a difficult case to an expert
pathologist in Toronto for a second opinion.  She is requiring the
patient's consent before she accepts the case.  How many of you get the
patient's consent before sending a case out for second opinion?  Is this
a HIPAA requirement that I am not familiar with?  Thank you.
