We stand firm in keeping each patient’s information private and confidential, which is their legal right enforced through HIPPA and PHI.
The HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Privacy Rule is to assure that an individual’s health information is properly protected while allowing the individual’s necessary health information that is needed to provide and promote quality health care, is protected. The HIPAA Privacy Rule permits important uses of information while protecting the privacy of people who seek healthcare. To read up more on your privacy rights click here.
Protected Health Information (PHI) under the US law is any information about health status, provision of health care, or payment for health care that is created or collected by a Covered Entity (or a Business Associate of a Covered Entity), and can be linked to a specific individual.
