Notice of Protected Health Information Practices and Privacy Statement
BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy Services, Inc. (“BioPlus”) is providing this Notice of Protected Health Information Practices and Privacy Statement about using the website (bioplusrx.com), Tap App and the HCV Treatment Path App because the privacy of your patients’ health information is very important to you, your patients, and us, as well as to be in compliance with federal regulations, including HIPAA*. By “patient health information” we mean the information that we maintain that specifically identifies your patients and that relates to their past, present or future health status, the health care services they are receiving, and billing information.
How We Collect Information
BioPlus and its employees collect data to serve patients through a variety of means including but not necessarily limited to physician input of information into the TAP App, medical records, phone calls, emails, and voice mails. The information is allowed to be collected and shared either because the patient has signed a HIPAA compliant authorization release, or because the exchange or sharing of the information is excepted from HIPAA restrictions.
What We Do Not Do With Patient Information
Information about the financial situation and medical conditions and care about each patient that you provide to us through this TAP App, via email, on the phone (including information left on voice mails), contained in or attached to paperwork, or directly or indirectly given to us, is held in strictest confidence.
We do not give out, exchange, barter, rent, sell, lend, or disseminate to any unauthorized person, any information about patients that is considered patient confidential, is restricted by law, or has been specifically restricted by a patient in a signed HIPAA authorization form.
How We Do Use Patient Information
Information about each patient is only used or disclosed as is reasonably necessary to carry out treatment, to obtain payment for treatment, and to conduct health care operations.
The health and medical information on our website is not intended to take the place of advice or treatment from healthcare professionals. It is also not intended to substitute for the users’ relationships with their own health care/pharmaceutical providers.
