Naturopathic MD (“Naturopathic MD”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) operates the website located at NaturopathicMD.com (collectively, the “Site”). This policy applies to our website as well as to the services and applications we provide, collectively known as the “Services.”
We are committed to ensuring that your personal information shared through our Site and/or Services is protected and kept confidential.
This SITE WILL BE COLLECTING AND TRANSMITTING PERSONAL, MEDICAL AND HEALTH-RELATED INFORMATION ABOUT YOU. Your personal medical record will be kept on the HIPAA compliant EHR website: www.drchrono.com.
Protected health information (PHI) is information that includes, but is not limited to, identifying data such as name, social security number, address, contact information, as well as information about personal health issues submitted through the Services. Personally identifiable information may include all such types of information, except for health- or health-care-specific information. This is the information we work our best to protect.
We will only collect information that is voluntarily submitted by you. Your privacy is important to us and we believe in keeping confidential any and all personally identifiable information that identifies an individual whether or not it relates to an individual’s past, present, or future physical or mental health condition.
Naturopathic MD is permitted to use and disclose your PHI for purposes of treatment, payment and healthcare operations.
We use account information in a password protected and encrypted environment as a security measure to ensure your data is protected. We have put administrative, physical and technical safeguards in place to protect data. We regularly maintain our data protection via safeguards such as data backup, audit controls, access controls, and some data encryption. Our Site and the Services use industry standard SSL encryption to enhance security of electronic data transmissions.
Please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet or data storage facility can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while we try to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
We may share Protected Health Information (PHI) as it is allowed by the law and as it is authorized by you. In certain cases, we employ other third parties to perform services on our behalf and they will have access to your PHI as needed to perform these services.
