OUR PLEDGE REGARDING PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION
We understand that health information about you is personal; and we are committed to protecting your personal health information. We will not disclose your information to others unless you tell us to do so, or unless the law authorizes or requires us to do so.
When you visit Kalihi-Palama Health Center (KPHC), we create a record of the care and services you receive from us. Typically, this record contains your symptoms, examination and test results, diagnoses, treatment, a plan for future care or treatment, and billing and payment information. We need this record to provide you with quality care and to comply with certain legal requirements. Federal and state law allows us to use and disclose your protected health information (PHI) for purposes of treatment, payment and health care operations. State law requires us to get your authorization to disclose this information for payment purposes.
KPHC is required by law to:
- Make sure health information that identifies you is kept private;
- Give you this Notice; and
- Follow the terms of the Notice.
