The ClipboardMD Service is a communications gateway that lets you securely interact with healthcare professionals and organizations (“Healthcare Providers”). As such, ClipboardMD serves as a liaison between you and your healthcare provider and is committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy statement applies to the data collected through www.ClipboardMD.com (the “ClipboardMD Service”).
The ClipboardMD Service complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), a federal program that requires that all medical records and other individually identifiable health information be maintained and transmitted confidentially. This Act gives patients significant new rights to understand and control how their health information is used. HIPAA provides penalties for covered entities that misuse Protected Health Information (PHI). “Protected health information” is information about you, including demographic information, that may identify you and that relates to your past, present or future physical or mental health or condition and related health care services.
