Patient Privacy

HIPAA Notice of Patient Privacy Practices

At Boston Medical Center, we place the highest priority on a patient’s right to privacy. We are committed to respect your right to privacy and confidentiality of your health information at all times.

As part of HIPAA requirements, all new patients seeing their health care provider upon their initial visits are required to sign the Acknowledgement of Receipt of Privacy Notice form to indicate that they have received the Notice of Privacy Practices. Our Notice of Privacy Practices describes how we (hospital/provider) may use or disclose your health information; your rights to access your health information and or to request changes to your health information. You may also request a list of people or organization that you did not authorize but who may have received your health information from us.
