Notice of Privacy Practices


The record of the medical care you receive at Martha Jefferson Hospital and the Martha Jefferson Outpatient Care Center – your medical information – has always been treated as personal and private. However, federal privacy laws that we are required to communicate to you now also govern this medical information.

There are circumstances under which we, as the provider of your health care, are permitted to use and disclose your medical information. In order to provide you with medical treatment and coordinate your care, physicians, nurses, technicians, and other personnel may share your medical information with one another. We may disclose medical information about you to your insurance company for the purposes of reimbursement. We may review your medical information to make sure that your care has met our standards, and we may use it to educate our own staff. The medical information of our patients may also be collected, tabulated and analyzed to help us improve overall out- patient and hospital services. We may share these statistical data with other healthcare institutions in order to better evaluate our own performance. As the patient, you may be entitled to request a restriction on the medical information we use or disclose about you for treatment or for the improvement of hospital operations. Appointment reminders, and communications to you about other treatments or services, entail the disclosure of your medical information. You may request that we communicate confidentially with you.

Entities, under State and Federal law, to which we may disclose your medical information are the coroner or state medical examiner, workers’ compensation programs, public health officials, state and federal agencies charged with oversight of the health care system, correctional institutions, military authorities, and national security and intelligence agencies. In serious situations we may release medical information about you to law enforcement agencies. We may disclose medical information in the defense of a malpractice claim, or in response to a court or administrative order. Except under special circumstances, you are entitled to view and/or copy your medical record. You have the right to amend your medical information if you have reason to believe it is incorrect or incomplete. You are entitled to receive a list of those entities or individuals to whom we may have disclosed your medical information. You are entitled to receive a paper copy of the full Notice of Privacy Practices. Finally, if you feel your privacy rights have been infringed, you may file a complaint, without fear of penalty, with our institution or with the federal government. We are required by law to make sure that medical information that identifies you is kept private; give you this notice of our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to medical information about you; and follow the terms of the notice that is currently in effect.
