What is Health Information
Health information is a part of the personal information that Ardu Recovery Center collects about patients. It’s divided into two categories:
“Protected Health Information” is individually identifiable health information, which is created or received by or on behalf of a covered entity (for example, a healthcare provider or health plan). It relates to an individual’s past, present, or future physical or mental health condition; their provision of health care; and their past, present, or future payment for their provision of health care. Protected Health Information is defined by the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), and is subject to the protections of HIPAA.
“Additional Health Information” is a subset of health information that does not fall within the category of Protected Health Information. For instance, it encompasses an individual’s information related to past, present, or future physical or mental health conditions; their provision of health care; and the past, present, or future payment for their provision of health care. However, the difference is that such information was not created or received by us from or on behalf of a covered entity. We may collect Additional Health Information in connection with our site or applications.
How We Use and/or Share Protected Health Information and Additional Health Information
We may use and/or disclose Protected Health Information and Additional Health Information to provide the services as described in our policy. Our use and disclosure of Protected Health Information is limited by the main federal health privacy law known as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), and the Notice of Privacy Practices available from your provider.
My Personal Information
You may also contact us directly if you would like to review, correct, update, delete, or limit our use of your personal information by sending us a message here. In your request, please let us know what information you would like us to modify, whether you want your personal information deleted from our database, or if you have any limitations regarding some of the data in your personal information. We will comply with your request as soon as possible.
Please note that in order to comply with certain requests to limit our use of your personal information, we may need to terminate your account and ability to access and use our services. You will need to agree that we are not liable for such termination. Although we will use reasonable efforts, you understand that it may not be technologically possible to erase every record of your personal information from our systems. The need to back up our systems to protect data from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personal information may exist in a non-erasable form that may be impossible for us to locate and erase.
