Cliniconex is committed to the protection of any personal health information collected by it and has therefore put into place policies and safeguards relating to the collection, use, disclosure, retention and disposition of personal health information if and when collected.
Collection of Information
Cliniconex may collect some or all of the following types of personal information: name of patient, appointment date and time and patient contact information such as a phone number or email address. At the discretion of the health information custodian, Cliniconex may also collect the name of the health services provider (e.g. a doctor or a dietician) related to the appointment.
Limiting Use and Retention
Methods of Protection
1. Administrative safeguards (e.g. privacy and security policies, limiting access to information on a need-to-know basis, use of security clearances);
2. Physical safeguards (e.g. locked filing cabinets, restricted access to offices); and
3. Technical safeguards (e.g. use of passwords, encryption and firewalls).
