Halo Health provides the web-based Clinical EHR to customers who enter into a Halo Health Membership Agreement (“Customers”), who then authorize Clinical EHR users, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and non-physician staff members (“Authorized Users”). Customers and Authorized Users are responsible for determining uses and disclosures of patient medical information maintained in the Clinical EHR, in accordance with their legal and professional responsibilities as health care professionals and state and federal medical privacy laws, including the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). To the extent that Halo Health receives or maintains patient medical information in the course of providing the Clinical EHR, that information is secured, used and disclosed only in accordance with Halo Health’s legal obligations as “business associate” under HIPAA.
Halo Health may choose to make the Patient Portal available to patients to enable certain interactions between the Customer, Authorized Users and patients, including scheduling appointments, discussing medical treatment, sending medication prescription-related messages, and enabling patient viewing of a portion of the Clinical EHR. Customers are solely responsible for the content of the patient’s medical record maintained in the Clinical EHR and determining the portion of the Clinical EHR that may be viewed by the patient through the Patient Portal.
Halo Health may utilize patient medical information on a limited basis as necessary to provide the Patient Portal services, including the following uses and disclosures:
Halo Health will maintain aggregate information regarding usage of the Patient Portal for product improvement purposes, but that data will not identify individual patients. Halo Health will not sell any personal information provided by a patient through the Patient Portal to a third party.
Each time a visitor comes to the Website, Halo Health collects some information to improve the overall quality of the visitor’s online experience.
Halo Health may share your PII under confidentiality agreements with other companies that work with, or on behalf of, Halo Health to provide products and services. These companies, which may include members of Halo Health’s corporate family, may use your PII to assist Halo Health in its operations. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
