CarePICS® takes very seriously its obligation to protect the confidentiality of personal healthcare information. CarePICS’ mobile applications for providers are intended to connect to servers and systems operated and maintained by CarePICS in order to provide secure, mobile access to those systems and to some personal healthcare information.
Personal Healthcare Information
CarePICS does not sell or license any information that it may collect from you from using our Applications. And, except for those things stated below, our Applications do not store any personal healthcare information on your device or on the Cloud and do not send personal healthcare information directly to any other provider without your explicit consent.
CarePICS attempts to minimize the amount of your personal or health information stored or retained on your device and our servers. Nevertheless, our Applications may:
- Obtain a picture on your device if you choose to aid in the assessment of a clinical condition and store this image on our secure server. No imagery is stored on the client side device.
- Obtain personal healthcare information while you use our Applications and store this data on our secure server. No data is stored on the client side device.
- In addition, in order to provide these features, our Applications may request information from servers and systems owned or operated by CarePICS and those servers and systems may record technical information about that request such as an IP address.
Protection of Personal Healthcare Information
The security of your information and data while using our Applications is very important to us. Our Applications employ a variety of technical safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your personal information including supporting Transport Layer Security (TLS)/Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate technology and encryption. In addition, CarePICS uses a variety of physical, administrative and technical measures to protect this personal healthcare information.
