MedSide Healthcare has special concern for protecting the privacy of both our clients and employees. Safeguarding patient's health information is not only a legal requirement but also an important ethical obligation.
As a health care provider, MedSide and its staff are entrusted with clinical information regarding our patients and clients. We recognize that medical and billing records are highly confidential and must be treated with great respect and care by all staff with access to this information.
MedSide's policy regarding confidentiality of protected health care information reflects our strong commitment to protecting the confidentiality of our patient's medical records and clinical information.
The “Notice of Privacy Practices” is given to every MedSide patient and explains our policies in more detail. Each of our office and field staff is also trained to follow the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) guidelines for PHI (Protected Health Information).
