Privacy Policies of A Woman's Place
This document describes our current privacy practices. Maintaining our patients’ trust and confidence is a high priority and our practice will adhere to the standards set forth in the Notice of Privacy Practices of A Woman’s Place.
We keep strict guidelines to protect confidentiality. We use technology to manage and maintain information. We have many safeguards to secure patient information from unauthorized access. Only individuals having a legitimate need will be granted access to a patient’s record. We do not disclose information to other companies, with the exception of those who do business with us. These companies have also contractually agreed to uphold our privacy regulations.
The personal information that we maintain on our patients is necessary to provide the best medical care possible. We collect this information from our patients either directly in person, by mail, telephonically, or by computer. We also receive information from other medical professionals and via insurance companies.
Information we collect about patient’s health information will be kept in an electronic medical record safeguarded with security measures restricting access to employees to see only the information necessary for them to do their job. Our practice will not disclose data unless the patient/guardian has properly consented to or authorized the release or unless we are authorized to do so by law.
