How is My Medical Data Kept Safe?
Keeping patient medical data safe is a Connie priority.
Connie follows all federal and state laws and will only share your medical data for the following purposes: health care treatment, care coordination, quality improvement, and public health.
Any providers using Connie must follow state and federal laws and agree to keep your health data completely confidential. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is the main law that governs health data sharing.
Connie uses advanced security measures to keep your healthcare data private and secure. These measures include consistent system checks, state of the art monitoring tools, and next-generation audit capabilities. Additionally, Connie relies on an advisory committee composed of industry experts, representatives from participating organizations, and others who help to inform our privacy and security program.
What Are My Patient Rights?
