The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act establishes national standards to protect individuals' medical records and other personal health information. HIPPA gives patients some control over certain parts of their health information and requires organizations such as TMC HealthCare to implement certain safeguards and practices to keep patient information safe.
As a patient of TMC HealthCare, you have several rights under HIPAA including the right to be informed about how TMC HealthCare will use your information and the right to object to certain types of uses and disclosures of your information.
TMC HealthCare’s Notice of Privacy Practices describes how TMC HealthCare uses your information and is always available for you to review, both here and at all of our facilities.
If you have any questions about TMC HealthCare’s Notice of Privacy Practices or your privacy rights under HIPAA, please feel welcome to contact the TMC HealthCare Corporate Compliance Department, (520) 324-1962.
