We are required by law to maintain the privacy of your medical records. Documents related to your health are referred to as protected health care information (PHI). The rules that we follow are dictated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). These rules we follow are outlined on the HIPAA website provided by the Department of Health and Human Services.
The Health and Human Services Website (hhs.gov) has valuable information with respect to your medical records as well as your rights. Many of your questions about health care private regulations can be answered there.
