How LASIK MD May Use or Disclose Your Health Information

For Healthcare Operations

LASIK MD may use and disclose health information about you for operational purposes. For example, your health information may be disclosed to members of the medical staff, risk or quality improvement personnel, and others to: evaluate the performance of our staff; assess the quality of care and outcomes in your cases and similar cases; learn how to improve our facilities and services; determine how to continually improve the quality and effectiveness of the healthcare we provide. All LASIK MD staff to which such health information is disclosed is bound by a confidentiality agreement.

Appointments

LASIK MD may use your information to provide appointment reminders or information about treatment alternatives or other health-related benefits and services that may be of interest to you. You may be contacted by email, mail, SMS or by telephone at the numbers you have provided for contact to remind you of an upcoming appointment.

For Treatment

LASIK MD may use your health information to provide you with medical treatment or services. For example, information obtained by a healthcare provider, such as an optometrist, physician, nurse, or other person providing health services to you, will record information in your record that is related to your treatment. This information is necessary for healthcare providers to determine what treatment you should receive. Healthcare providers will also record actions taken by them in the course of your treatment and note how you respond to the actions. If you have been referred into our facility from a healthcare provider outside of LASIK MD, that referring doctor may have sent information about you in advance to help in our treatment of you. We will provide your referring healthcare provider with copies of your record or reports that will assist him/her in your treatment and healthcare after you have completed your management from our facility. All LASIK MD staff to which such health information is disclosed is bound by a confidentiality agreement.

For Payment

LASIK MD may use and disclose your health information to others for purposes of receiving payment for treatment and services that you receive. For example, a bill may be sent to you or a third-party payer, such as an insurance company or health plan. The information on the bill may contain information that identifies you, your diagnosis, and treatment or supplies used in the course of treatment.

Marketing

LASIK MD may use information it collects, including information submitted in connection with contests or sweepstakes, to market to you directly by email, mail, SMS or by telephone for research opportunities, services, procedures or materials offered by LASIK MD that may be of interest or benefit to you. If you do not wish to receive this information, you have the right to be removed from our list.

Disclosure of Your Information
