Is my health information safe?
Your Health Information Is Private, Secure, and Protected. Patient portals have privacy and security safeguards in place to protect your health information.
  • To make sure that your private health information is safe from unauthorized access, patient portals are hosted on a secure connection and accessed via an encrypted, password-protected logon.
  • EHRs also have an “audit trail” feature that keeps a record of who accessed your information, what changes were made, and when.
  • Although patient portals use safeguards, there are other safety tips you should follow when accessing the patient portal. Always remember to protect your username and password from others and make sure to only log on to the patient portal from a personal or secure computer.
