What we Handle

Cookies

Cookies are small files a web server sends to a web client that store small bits of information. These files are sent back to the web server to assist in remembering with which client the server was communicating.

Following are the cookies we use and how we use them:

HIPAA defines what PHI is. Below is a comprehensive list of PHI fields. We store only the bold fields below. All storage is encrypted:

  1. Names
  2. Geographic Identifiers more specific than a State, except zip codes: If the first 3 digits of a zipcode identify less than 20,000 people, the first three digits must be replaced with 000.
  3. Any months or days associated directly with a patient. Years can be stored so long as the patient is younger than 89 years of age. -- The patient's entire birth date and dates for labs and other patient-specific details are encrypted and stored for processing and analysis.
  4. Telephone Numbers
  5. Fax Numbers
  6. Electronic Mail Addresses
  7. Social Security Numbers
  8. Medical Record Numbers
