On August 21, 1996, the United States Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA).
It is our job at Internal Medicine Center, LLC, to protect our patients health information. We require all patients to sign and date a HIPPA compliant medical Authorization before we release Protected Health Information (PHI). Additionally, FollowMy Health (our Patient Portal) meets all Meaningful Use security criteria including:
- Access Control,
- Automatic Log-Off,
- Audit Log, Integrity,
- General Encryption, and
- Encryption when Exchanging Clinical Information.
