When it comes to your privacy, you have certain rights and we have certain responsibilities. This notice describes how medical information about your child may be used and disclosed and how you may access this information. We respect patient privacy and only release medical information about your child in accordance with state and federal laws. We reserve the right to update this policy at any time. An updated policy will be made available at your request.

  • Electronic documentation and records

  • Web-based forms, password protected and accessible only by Dynamic permission 

 

Minimum Necessary: we only share as much information as necessary, in accordance with these guidelines:

  • Only Dynamic employees who have direct involvement with your case will access your PHI

  • All Dynamic employees sign a confidentiality agreement that prohibits them from sharing your PHI unlawfully and unethically

  • PHI will only be shared between staff members as necessary to provide high quality care

  • If other entities require your PHI, consent of release of information will be obtained from you

 

Use and Disclosure of PHI: to provide effective and high quality care, there are times we must use and disclose your child’s medical information with others beyond our practice. This includes circumstances of:

  • Health Oversight: for the purpose of audits, investigations, and inspections. Oversight agencies include but are not limited to government agencies that oversee the healthcare system, government benefit programs, and other governmental programs and civil rights laws.
