We are committed to preserving the privacy of your personal health information. In fact, we are required by law to protect the privacy of your medical information and to provide you with NOTICE describing how medical information about you may be used and disclosed, and how you can access this information.
We are required by law to have your written consent before we use or disclose to others your medical information for purposes of providing or arranging for your health care, the payment for or reimbursement of the care that we provide you, and the related administrative activities supporting your treatment.
- We may be required or permitted by certain laws to use and disclose your medical information for other purposes without your consent or authorization.
- As our patient, you have important rights relating to inspecting and copying your medical information that we maintain. Amending or correcting that information, obtaining an account of our disclosures of our medical information, requesting that we communicate with you confidentially, requesting that we restrict certain uses and disclosures of your health information, and complaining if you think your rights have been violated are your rights.
- We have available a detailed NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES which fully explains your right and our obligations under the law. We may revise our NOTICE from time to time.
If you have any questions, concerns, or complaints about the NOTICE or your medical information, please contact Cammy Gilstrap, Cascade Surgicenter Director, at (541) 330-8671.
