At WHA, we are committed to safeguarding the privacy and the security of your personal health information. Our clinicians and staff are vigilant about protecting your personal information. When you pay online, your credit card information is transferred over a secure internet connection and is only used for the purposes of making payments that are authorized by you. Our practices are compliant with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), as well as newer legislation, such as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
We use an electronic medical record to improve the efficiency and quality of your care and to increase the security of your personal information. An active Information Security Committee meets regularly to ensure that our practices comply with both the letter and intent of regulations governing health information security.
