The mission of Adventist HealthCare, (“AHC”) is to demonstrate God’s care by improving the health of people and communities through a ministry of physical, mental and spiritual healing. We accomplish this mission by living our five core values of respect, integrity, service, excellence and stewardship. One way we demonstrate our core values is to ensure our patient's protected health information (PHI) is properly safeguarded.
In conjunction with our mission and values, AHC is required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and other state and federal regulations, to safeguard patient information during transmission (e.g. sending an email that contains patient information). While technology can often simplify some of our daily activities, it is important to take a moment to examine the confidentiality of what we are sending via email.
Meeting these standards is one of the many ways we make Adventist HealthCare a best place to work as we provide superior outcomes for our patients.
If you have questions about a HIPAA privacy or security matter, please contact Anjali Mulchandani-West, AHC Chief Privacy Officer, at 301-315-3371.
