Information We Collect about Members or Patients of our Covered Entity Customers
In some cases, we may provide the System or Services for or on behalf of your health plan, health insurance company or health care providers who are subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (the “HITECH Act”), and regulations promulgated thereunder (“HIPAA Regulations”). These entities are our “Covered Entity” customers. Individually identifiable health information (“Protected Health Information”, or “PHI”) that we collect for or on behalf of Covered Entities is subject to additional legal protections. Accordingly, we will only collect, use and disclose PHI as permitted by our contracts with such Covered Entity customers and as permitted or required by applicable law.
To provide the Services for or on behalf of our Covered Entity Customers, we may collect certain information from you in addition to information collected from general users of the Pursuant Health Kiosks, such as your health insurance member ID. Additionally, certain information including your name, e-mail address or phone number may be necessary if you request or authorize us to submit your information, assessment or screening to the Covered Entity or another third party. In these situations, the Kiosk screen will notify you about the information that is being collected, why, and how it will be shared, and you will be able to choose whether you want to proceed.
