What are my choices?
Carolinas HealthCare System CareConnect offers many benefits to patients but your participation is voluntary — you get to choose whether you want your information included. We encourage you to first talk to your doctor about this decision and to review our FAQs about Carolinas HealthCare System CareConnect.

Opting-Out of Carolinas HealthCare System CareConnect
Patients who do not want their medical information to be accessible to authorized health care providers through Carolinas HealthCare System CareConnect may choose not to participate or "opt-out." If you choose to opt-out, health care providers will not be able to look for your records in Carolinas HealthCare System CareConnect.

Choosing not to participate means emergency room doctors will not be able to get information that could help them give you better care or save your life in an emergency. Also, some providers may decide not to see patients that do not participate in Carolinas HealthCare System CareConnect because they will not have access to medical information that would help them give patients the best care possible.
