You are in control of your Health Information
How you can share your Health Information
- To store your Health Information on the Site, you will need an account on the Site
(an “Account”). You control what Health Information is stored in your Account and
can store as much or as little information in your Account as you want. If you so
choose, your Health Information may include your medical record and history information
(e.g., conditions, allergies, test results, medications, immunizations or health
insurance information) and/or your wellness data and goals (e.g., personalized wellness
goals around weight or exercise).
- While you can edit Health Information that you have personally entered into your
Account at any time, you cannot edit Health Information that third parties send
to your Account at your request. You can, however, partially or completely delete
your Health Information at any time. Deletion will be initiated immediately, and
your Health Information will be purged from your Account shortly thereafter. Additional
backup copies of deleted information may persist for a short time. Since deleted
data will not be restored, you may want to print information before deleting it.
Deletion will not revoke your prior consent or authorization for uses and disclosures
of your Health Information prior to your deletion.
- You control who can access your Health Information through the Site. By default,
you are the only member of the Site who can view and edit your Health Information,
but you have the option to share your Health Information with other members of the
Site or, as outlined below, third-party service providers. You can revoke access
to your Health Information at any time.
- Health Information stored in your Account is not publicly accessible through internet
searches on Google.com or other internet search engines. Healthper will not sell,
rent, or share your Health Information without your explicit consent, except in
the limited situations described in this Policy or the
is required to do so by law.
How Healthper uses and shares your Health Information
- If you share your Health Information with others, you can view a list of who has
access to your Health Information and, as mentioned above, you can revoke sharing
privileges at any time. When you revoke someone's ability to read your Health Information,
that party will no longer be able to read your information, but may have already
seen or may retain a copy of the Health Information. You should be aware that some
of the Health Information you share may show up on the pages of other members to
whom you have allowed access and may be shared or copied by such other members.
Healthper is not responsible for actions taken with respect to your Health Information
by third parties (including other members of the Site) to whom you disclose such
- Healthper contains links to third-party service providers that are capable of securely
sending information to Healthper. These service providers (which may include your
medical providers) may provide information about certain health conditions or extend
the functionality of the Site in other ways. By creating a link to these service
providers, you give them permission to send your Health Information (such as medical
records, prescription histories or test reports) to your Account.
- You can approve access for some of these service providers to view and copy your
Health Information. If a service provider accesses your Health Information and stores
a copy of your Health Information, that copy will be governed by that service provider's
– may be able to view your Health Information. Healthper is not responsible for
the content, performance, or privacy policies of third-party service providers.
- Some of these third-party service providers will be covered by federal and state
health privacy laws (such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability
Act, or “HIPAA”), and those laws will also govern how they may use and share your
information. HIPAA requires (as does Healthper) that you must authorize these providers
to send information to your Account. Click here for a
sample Authorization form. With that authorization, you also give them permission
to send certain especially sensitive types of health information (such as mental
health or substance abuse records) that are protected by federal and state laws
and require special authorization for disclosure to third parties. If you disclose
this information yourself, these protections do not apply.
- Healthper service providers that are entities or business associates covered by HIPAA
are contractually required by law and by Healthper to comply with HIPAA's applicable
rules related to collection, use, and sharing of your information.
- However, Healthper is not a “covered entity” under HIPAA. As a result, HIPAA does
not apply to the transmission of health information by Healthper to any third party.
If you authorize a HIPAA covered entity such as your healthcare provider to provide
Health Information to Healthper on your behalf, that Health Information will no
longer be subject to HIPAA.
