Privacy Policy

for

Amarillo Medical Specialists, LLP Web Pages

We have two complementary privacy policies.

In-Office Medical Records Privacy & HIPAA

Our office privacy policy regarding your medical record is designed to be compliant with all applicable state and Federal laws, including HIPAA, which became effective April 13, 2003.  Please read and print a copy of our privacy policy which is located here  .  In order to preserve the formatting of this policy statement, it is in Adobe Acrobat format. If you are a patient, please contact our office if you are unable to read this format and we will be happy to mail a copy to you upon request.

 The physicians at Amarillo Medical Specialists participate in the Amarillo Legacy Medical ACO Health Information Exchange (HIE). The HIE is an Amarillo based computer information system that helps healthcare providers securely share medical records. This enables authorized doctors and nurses involved in your care to quickly access the medical information they need to give you the best care. This can help in emergencies, or help avoid taking tests more than one time.

Patients are included in the HIE unless they choose to opt out. You have the right to choose not to have your health information from our providers included in the Health Information Exchange. To choose to be not included, or to choose to be included after previously opting out, you may complete this “HIE Opt-Out form” . It is also available at all our offices.
