Medical records are created when you receive treatment from a health professional such as a physician, nurse, dentist, chiropractor, or psychiatrist. Records may include your medical history, details about your lifestyle (such as smoking or involvement in high-risk sports), and family medical history.
Many people consider information about their health to be highly sensitive, deserving of the strongest protection under the law. North Scottsdale Outpatient Surgical Center recognizes this, and we maintain procedures that meet or exceed federal guidelines for Protected Health Information (PHI).
Please take a few minutes to read our Notice of Privacy Practices. It describes how we may use and disclose your protected health information to carry out treatment, payment or health care operations and for other purposes that are permitted or required by law. It also explains your rights to access and control your protected health information.
