The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was created to ensure the privacy and security of a person/patient’s health information. Additionally, it promotes privacy and trust between a patient and a medical provider.
As a HIPAA requirement, all Piedmont HealthCare patients are required to sign the Acknowledgement of Receipt of Privacy Notice form to confirm receipt of our Notice of Privacy Practices.
What does this mean for our patients? Our Notice of Privacy Practices describes how we, as medical providers, may use or disclose your healthcare information – including your rights to access and request changes to your health information.
You may also indicate those individuals or entities who may receive or NOT receive your health information from Piedmont HealthCare providers.
Please find the Notice of Privacy Practices with our other patient forms located at this link: http://piedmonthealthcare.com/resource-center/provider-forms/
If you have any questions about this document, or any other concerns about forms and the care you receive by a Piedmont HealthCare provider, please call us at 704-873-4277
