The Internet can be a mixed blessing. It places news, entertainment, communications, and data available at our fingertips, but it can also expose our personal details to people who shouldn’t have them.

Your Health Information is on the Worldwide Web

Chances are, if you’ve spent much time doing professional or personal activities online, someone has at least tried to surreptitiously get past your account security to steal your sensitive information, or to encrypt it with ransomware, or to plant a virus onto your computer. Like so many others you know or have heard of, you may have had to occasionally have to an unauthorized charge or even replace a credit card. Today, though, your privacy stakes are much higher than monitoring your credit cards or not clicking on suspicious email links. Much of your most personal, even intimate details of your medical history – your medical conditions, your conversations with your doctor, the results of your medical exams and tests, even images are taken of you by radiology, MRI, or photographs – are all online in the form of electronic health records (EHRs). The question is, how safe is that information, given what we know about how determined online criminals are to get it? Can you feel comfortable sharing your most personal medical details with your doctor through MyCareClix?

MyCareClix Takes Your Personal and Medical Privacy Seriously

The Federal government knows the dangers inherent in keeping your personal health information online and has laws in place to make sure that anyone who has access to it must comply with recognized safeguards to protect it. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act both require MyCareClix to maintain stringent measures to keep your personally identifiable information out of the wrong hands. MyCareClix is fully compliant with its obligations under both HIPAA and the HITECH Act, including maintaining administrative, physical, and technical safeguards, performing risk analysis and risk management to identify and address threats to EHR security, and training MyCareClix personnel in their responsibilities under these laws. When you communicate with your doctor using MyCareClix, do so knowing that everything you share will be protected to the full extent required by law while you are sending it and while we are keeping it. Your EHRs are only shared with CareClix medical professionals who have a need to know as part of your diagnosis and treatment.
