Interoperability and Patient Access
As your trusted health partner, we are committed to providing you with digital access to your health information. To that end, we are working to allow you to easily retrieve healthcare data so you can:
- Share the information in a secure method with whomever the member choses; or
- Utilize apps or devises to analyze, track and manage the member’s data.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published new interoperability rules that will make it easy for patients and health insurance members to access their health information.
Interoperability will create the opportunity to connect your health and claims data to the application of your choice. This means that you can access your data in the manner that is best for you, leading to more flexibility and knowledge about your health.
These new rules mean that your health care data can be shared more easily, but they also mean you’ll have to take additional steps to protect it.
We believe it is important for you to know all the facts about third-party apps, your protected health information and privacy and security.
Information shared could include:
- primary care provider
- health goals
- lab results
- procedural and diagnostic orders
- provider details
- referral orders
- smoking status
- clinical notes
- lines, drains, airways
A third party App should have a privacy notice. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Act protects against deceptive acts such as violations of the terms of its privacy notice.
The FTC provides information about mobile App privacy and security for consumers.
If you believe an App inappropriately used, disclosed, or sold your information, you should contact the FTC. You may file a complaint with the FTC using the FTC complaint assistant.
