Information Collected through the Portal. As a service to our patients, we may also provide links to Portals in order to offer our patients secure, private access to their own Personal Health Information (“PHI”), as well as certain internet-based services which may include, among other things, assistance in finding a doctor, assistance in scheduling appointments, the ability to register for classes and pre-register for procedures, the ability to make payments for medical services rendered, and access to health and patient education materials and secure messaging.
When you seek access to your PHI on the Portal, we need to confirm your identity. We ask you for information such as your name and email or physical address and other information such as your date of birth (which we may also use to make sure you are eligible to use the Portal in accordance with the Terms) and the answers to “secret questions” to which only you know the answers. This information may be used to help administer and manage your user account. We may need to ask you for the information again when you sign in from a new device.
We may ask for information about your location and medical needs to assist with finding a physician, and may collect and pass on information (which may include, where relevant, health information such as your patient history) to assist you in scheduling appointments, pre-registering for procedures, and registering for classes.
