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.
