MaineGeneral Health is dedicated to protecting our patients' privacy, as outlined in our Notice of Privacy Practices for Protected Health Information.
We safeguard patients' medical records by adhering to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other state and federal regulations.
The federal rules of HIPAA insure that disclosing medical information without patient authorization is limited to what is necessary to treat patients, pay insurance claims or advise patient-authorized family members.
MaineGeneral Health has provided and continues to provide extensive training and education about medical privacy to our medical care staff and all of our employees.
We've also provided patient education.
This is just one of the ways MaineGeneral Health is working to enhance our patients' experiences and the quality of the care they receive at our facilities.
