Who Can See an Individual's Information?
PHIA permits CCMB to collect and use Personal Health Information and, in certain circumstances, to share it with others both inside and outside CCMB, without consent from the individual for purposes such as:
Unless the individual tells CCMB not to, the health care facility can:
Individuals may tell a member of their health care team if you do not want your information shared with a family member or friend, or a religious organization, fundraising foundation or health care provider. These requests must be forwarded to the site Privacy Officer.
All CCMB employees and those associated with CCMB are required to protect the accuracy, integrity and security of all personal health information and are required to sign a pledge of confidentiality. CCMB has policies and procedures that provide protection of personal health information and conducts continued training for employees and all others associated with CCMB.
If an individual wants to know more about their right to see, get a copy or ask for a correction of their Personal Health Information or their privacy rights under PHIA, or have a complaint about their rights, they should be advised to contact the Privacy Officer located at the site where they are receiving health care services.
