Your health is an intensely personal matter. As your health care provider, we recognize that and work hard to assure your privacy.
As part of our ongoing efforts to protect your privacy and keep your personal health information confidential, we’ve updated our Notice of Privacy Practices and will make it available to you when you come to our facilities for care.
HIPAA Privacy at St. Clair
In addition, the notice identifies our Privacy Officer, who has been designated to assure that our facilities are equipped and our staff is trained to protect your privacy. The Privacy Officer reviews any special requests you may have and helps to resolve any questions or concerns you may have.
Please be assured that as much as possible, we limit both the amount of information about you that is shared and the number of people with whom it is shared.
When you come to us for care, we will strongly encourage you to read our Notice of Privacy Practices and ask questions if there are parts of it you don’t understand. It is very important that you understand how your health information may be used and what your rights are regarding your health information.
Please be assured that as much as possible, we limit both the amount of information about you that is shared and the number of people with whom it is shared. Our staff and volunteers are trained to be sensitive about confidentiality and patient privacy. We restrict access to information about you to only those who need to know that information under state and federal laws and regulations and to those who provide, pay for, and improve your care. And we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your health information.
Please let us know throughout your care if you have any questions about how your health information is being used, and if you have any concerns about your privacy. Privacy, like patient satisfaction, is very important to us.
