COMPLIANCE NOTIFICATION FOR OUR PATIENTS
To our Valued Patients:
The misuse of Personal Health Information (PHI) has been identified as a national problem causing patients inconvenience, aggravation, and money. We want you to know that all of our employees, managers, and doctors, continuously undergo training so that they may understand and comply with government rules and regulation regarding the HIPPA with particular emphasis on the “Privacy Rules”. We strive to achieve the very highest standards of the ethics and integrity in performing services for our patients.
It is our policy to properly determine appropriate users of PHI in accordance with the government rules, laws, and regulation. We want to ensure that our practice never contributes in any way to the growing problem of improper disclosure of PHI. As part of this plan, we have implemented a Compliance Program that we believe will help us prevent any inappropriate use of PHI.
We also know that we are not perfect! Because of the fact, our policy is to listen to our employees, and our patients without any thought of penalization if they feel that an event in any way compromises our policy integrity. More so, we welcome your input regarding any service problem so that we may remedy the situation promptly.
Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have questions, please feel free to call the number above.
