Privacy Information and Documents
The Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is federal legislation that has created a national standard for protecting the privacy of a patient's private health information. The Urology Center of Chester County, PC has always been careful to protect a patient's privacy and will continue to strive to do so. This page provides helpful information about your privacy rights and certain key forms that you can use in exercising these rights.
Notice of Privacy Practices
HIPAA requires that every healthcare provider create and distribute a Notice of Privacy Practices. This document describes what the provider may do with your private healthcare information and what rights you have regarding these practices. This will be distributed at the time of your initial patient visit. For your convenience please click here to download this form.
Authorization for Release of Information
One key element in maintaining the privacy of a patient's personal health information is having them authorize the release of information for certain purposes prior to any release occurring. The types of releases that do and do not need authorization are reviewed in the Notice of Privacy Practices mentioned above. We will be providing the authorization at your initial visit so you can fill it out at the time of your visit.
For More Information
Many of the elements concerning your privacy can be confusing, and no printed document can start to answer all of the questions that might arise. For further information or to discuss any privacy issue you may have, please call the Privacy Officer and the Practice Administrator at 610-692-4270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
