PHLEBNET is committed to maintaining the confidentiality of all proprietary information according to existing laws and standards. We carefully avoid unwarranted invasion or disclosure of clients’ privacy. We collect information associated with providing mobile health care related services. We are committed to complying with all applicable privacy and security laws and regulations, including the applicable aspects of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
To ensure that we protect our clients’ rights to privacy, the following guidelines apply:
1. Access to Protected Health Information (PHI) is limited to those permitted by law.
2. Maintaining computer passwords and access codes in a responsible and confidential manner.
3. Ensure that client information is not discussed in any public area.
4. Report violation of confidentiality breaches to the designated Privacy Officer or others in the chain of command.
At PHLEBNET, we have made it our mission to continue to adhere to our Compliance practices as set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 and the HITECH Act of 2010, endorsed by the United States Congress and overseen by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. PHLEBNET maintains HIPAA Compliance through required trainings and exams given to all its staff and management tiers twice per year.
We highly respect our clients and our company so that ensuring client confidentiality has become a non-negotiable objective. This is done by issuing each health care worker unique access into client files, extensive background checks for all personnel and staff, and routine follow-up calls and surveys to serviced clients regarding the health care services they receive.
We, at PHLEBNET, also complete routine risk assessments required by HIPAA law to ensure the safety and security of all staff functions, as well as all forms of data, whether in storage or while in transmission. Any problems identified in these risk assessments are immediately addressed at the highest possible security level to ensure client confidentiality at all times.
