SNHIMA respects patient privacy by strictly adhering to the obligation of patient confidentiality.
Your information is kept private unless a consent to release is provided by you, or should your physician become concerned for the safety of you or someone else. During your appointment you may see your doctor entering notes into a computer. These notes become part of your electronic health record (EHR) which enables you to receive coordinated care from additional health providers when necessary. Precautions are taken to ensure that only authorized access occurs.
