Protected Health Information

Biograph is not a “covered entity” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Public Law 104-191, and its related regulations and amendments from time to time (collectively, “HIPAA”), however, the Medical Group (as defined in our Terms of Use) may be a “covered entity” and, solely in its role providing administrative services to the Medical Group, Biograph may be a “business associate” of the Medical Group. Therefore, the Medical Group and, solely in its role as a business associate, Biograph, may be subject to certain provisions of HIPAA with respect to “protected health information,” as defined under HIPAA, that you provide to the Medical Group. PHI does not include information that has been de-identified in accordance with HIPAA (“De-Identified Health Information”), and does not include information that you submit to Biograph for purposes other than connecting you with the Medical Group or Providers.

Under HIPAA, a “covered entity” is required to provide their patients a Notice of Privacy Practices that describes how the covered entity uses and discloses “protected health information” (“PHI”). As a result, if the Medical Group determines that it is a covered entity under HIPAA, the Medical Group will adopt and separately provide to you a HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices that describes how the the Medical Group may use or disclose your PHI (the “Medical Group Notice of Privacy Practices”).

HIPAA also requires a covered entity to obtain a patient authorization that satisfies certain requirements in order for the covered entity or its business associates to use or disclose PHI in certain ways. In order to ensure that the Medical Group and Biograph are able to effectively provide their respective services to you and that you are able to utilize the full functionality of the Service, the Medical Group and/or Biograph may need to use or disclose your PHI in ways that would require the Medical Group to obtain an authorization under HIPAA. As a result, if the Medical Group determines that it is a covered entity under HIPAA, the Medical Group will obtain from you a patient authorization (a “Patient Authorization”) that authorizes the Medical Group and Biograph to use and disclose your PHI in certain ways that are described in the Patient Authorization.

To the extent that Biograph is in fact a “business associate” of the Medical Group, Biograph's use and disclosure of your PHI will comply with HIPAA and any Patient Authorization.Any information that does not constitute PHI may be used or disclosed in any manner permitted under this Privacy Policy.
