Memorial Hospital at Gulfport (“Memorial,” “we,” “us”) is committed to protecting your privacy and the security of the information you entrust with us. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices. Your use of MyHealthRecord is governed by the terms of this Policy, and by using or accessing MyHealthRecord, you agree to be bound by it.

How the Health Information in MyHealthRecord is Obtained 

MyHealthRecord provides a view into your Electronic Medical Record (“EMR”), which is maintained by us and also allows us to communicate securely with you. The information available for you to view through MyHealthRecord is not a comprehensive view of all the data in your EMR.

MyHealthRecord maintains limited information about you, such as your name, date of birth, and medical record number. Your personal health information is not separately maintained or managed through MyHealthRecord.

MyHealthRecord uses your Cerner Health account to confirm your identity when you sign into MyHealthRecord. Cerner Health is a personal health record service and is subject to its own Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Information You Contribute to MyHealthRecord 

When you enter information in MyHealthRecord, that information is stored in your EMR where it is accessible to members of your care team and staff. Information that becomes a part of your EMR remains in your EMR even if you stop using MyHealthRecord.

Sharing Your Personal Health Information 

If you share information available through MyHealthRecord with another individual, you acknowledge and accept responsibility for your decision to provide them access to potentially sensitive information.

How Information is Collected and Used 

MyHealthRecord collects certain information from you in three ways: (1) from web server logs, (2) with cookies and web analytics tools, and (3) directly from you.

(a) IP Addresses (Server Log Information) An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. MyHealthRecord collects IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, report Aggregate Information (as defined below) to affiliates or partners, and to conduct web site analysis. MyHealthRecord will also use IP addresses to identify any users who refuse to comply with the Terms of Use agreement, and to identify users who threaten the MyHealthRecord service, website, users, clients or others. 

(b) Cookies and Web Analytics Tools. MyHealthRecord places a text file called a ‘cookie’ in the browser files of your computer. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. MyHealthRecord uses cookies to identify your online session, secure your information and improve the performance of MyHealthRecordThese cookies do not contain any personal information. You may disable cookies in your browser, but doing so will restrict your access to public pages only, and, you will no longer be able to access MyHealthRecord. In addition to cookies, some web analytics tools used by MyHealthRecord place a single-pixel GIF file on a computer as a tracking indicator.

(c) Registration (User-Supplied Information). MyHealthRecord registration systems may require you to give us your contact information (such as, your name and email address) and demographic information (such as, a ZIP code, organization and/or role). Your contact information is used to contact you when necessary. We may use MyHealthRecord to communicate with you about our services. 

(d) Services (User-Supplied Information). We may use your account and email address to communicate with you about our services. If you sign up for a new service, we may collect personal information such as contact information (e.g., name, address, telephone number and alternate email address), demographic information (e.g., zip code, organization and/or role), billing information (e.g., credit or debit card numbers), or sensitive information (e.g., healthcare information).

How Information is Shared and Disclosed 

We do not rent, sell or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies, except when we have your permission or under the following circumstances:

(a) Disclosures to Third Parties Assisting In Our Operations. We may provide your personal information to affiliates, subsidiaries and trusted partners who work on behalf of or with us under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to assist us in our operations. 

(b) Aggregate Information. We may provide information about you that does not allow you to be identified or contacted (“Aggregate Information”) to third parties, such as usage information and trends. When Aggregate Information is provided, it is pooled with many individual records and stripped of any data that could be used to identify you before it is used.

(c) Disclosures Under Special Circumstances. We may provide information about you in our sole discretion to respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take legal action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the Terms of Use, or as otherwise required or permitted by law.

However, deleting the connection does not notify us that you no longer wish to receive communications in MyHealthRecord.
