DOC uses reasonable technology measures to safeguard your PHI, including protecting such information from unauthorized use and disclosure by third parties. DOC and its designees will access, store, and maintain your PHI online using the DOC Service. DOC serves in the role of administration for the DOC Service (“Administration”).
By submitting your information to the DOC Service by way of this Website to request telehealth dermatology services, your PHI will be made available online using the DOC Service through this Website. You will have the ability to edit your request for telehealth dermatology services. Participating dermatologists using the DOC Service (“Participants”) will have access to your PHI by using the DOC Service to review your request for telehealth dermatology services. DOC’s designated payment processor will have access to your PHI for use in connection with payment related activities. Other third parties may have access to your PHI either to fulfill healthcare operations of the Participants or as a result of a valid authorization which you have granted.
When you pay for dermatology services which are delivered through the DOC Service, your PHI will be used or disclosed by the third party payment processor in connection with the processing of your payment information. In addition, your PHI may be disclosed to or used by a Participant in connection with payment related activities. DOC and its designees may use your PHI for other payment or reimbursement activities for the provision of services.
Participants and business associates (as defined by the HIPAA Privacy Rule) may use or disclose your PHI in connection with healthcare operations related activities such as communications about your treatment, case management, care coordination, direct or alternative treatments, therapies, health care providers, or settings of care, and communications pursuant to a valid authorization by you.
