Notice of HIPAA Privacy Practices
The HIPAA Privacy Notice describes how we may use and disclose your protected health information to carry out treatment, payment or health care operations and for other purposes that are permitted or required by law. It also describes your rights to access and control your protected health information in some cases.
Your “protected health information” means any written and verbal health information about you, including demographic data that can be used to identify you.
You will be given a copy of our HIPAA Privacy Notice prior to or on the day of surgery, and be asked to sign that you received it.
