Greenway Health, LLC (“Greenway”, “We” or “Us”), operates and hosts the MyHealthRecord.com patient portal website and services (the “Service”) on behalf of health care providers who provide services to patients who register and utilize the Service (Your “Provider” or “Providers”). This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) identifies the information that is collected during Your use of the Service, as well as the ways in which We may Use or Disclose such information. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and made a part of the Terms of Service applicable to the Service.

1. Agreement to Privacy Policy

If You do not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, or the Terms of Service, please do not use the MyHealthRecord.com website or the Service.

IF YOU ARE A USER OF THE SERVICE OTHER THAN A PROVIDER OR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL WORKING FOR A PROVIDER AND YOU CHOOSE TO REGISTER TO ACCESS THE SERVICE, YOU WILL BE CONFIRMING THAT YOU ARE REGISTERING FOR THE SERVICE IN RESPONSE TO AN INVITATION RECEIVED BY YOU FROM YOUR PROVIDER, AND YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO VIEW AND AGREE TO CERTAIN REGISTRATION INFORMATION (INCLUDING THE TERMS OF SERVICE) IN ORDER TO FINALIZE YOUR REGISTRATION.

2. Modifications to Privacy Policy

We may revise this Privacy Policy at any time. Should any new Privacy Policy take effect, We will notify you that a change has occurred by posting notice on the Service (on the MyHealthRecord.com website, utilizing the secure messaging features of the Service, or through other reasonable means). However, each time that you visit the MyHealthRecord.com website or use the Service, you should check the date of this Privacy Policy (set forth above) and review any changes that have been made since You last visited the MyHealthRecord.com website or utilized the Service. By continuing to visit the MyHealthRecord.com website or utilizing the Services after any such changes are posted, you will agree and consent to any such changes.

3. Applicability of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies solely to the MyHealthRecord.com website and Service and provides you information on the specific information that We may collect from you via the MyHealthRecord.com website Service and how We may use it in connection with the MyHealthRecord.com website and Service, whether you are using the Service as a patient or a Provider.

If you are a patient or legal representative, your Provider’s use and disclosure of Your identifiable health information is subject to your Provider’s Notice of Privacy Practices. We cannot control any Provider’s use of a patient's identifiable health information. If you are a patient or legal representative of a patient, please contact your Provider for a copy of their Notice of Privacy Practices. We provide the Service on behalf of your Provider and therefore protect identifiable health information as required by the applicable agreement between Us and your Provider and in accordance with applicable law. This Privacy Policy does not in any way govern Our collection, use or disclosure of Your identifiable health information in connection with any relationship that we may have with your Provider other than as the operator and host of the Service; any such collection, use or disclosure is governed by the Business Associate Agreement that We have with your Provider, and all applicable laws. If you have any issues with the identifiable health information managed by your Provider, please contact them directly, as we have no ability to change the information you have provided them.

4. Disclosure of Information Practices

Whether you are a patient or a Provider, if we collect information from or about you via the Service, we will tell you what information we are collecting. The amount and type of information that we receive depends on how you use this Service and the information you choose to submit to us via the Service.

Whether you are a Provider or patient user, we may track use of your user name and may also capture the paths taken as you move from page to page (i.e., your "click stream" activity). When you log in, your user name and encrypted password will be logged by our system in an audit log but will not be used by us.

As a user of the Service and if available, you may also choose to use the secure messaging feature of the Service which will allows the exchange of communications between patients and the clinicians who treat them and which may contain identifiable health information. We record and maintain communications sent via this feature. Service users have the ability to view the trail of messages received and sent via their Service account. We do not edit the content of the communications between patients and Providers.

A. Identifiable Health Information

You are not required to provide identifiable health information to visit the MyHealthRecord.com website. However, if you are a patient or the legal representative of a patient, you must provide certain identifiable health information in order to complete your registration for the Service and to access the health records maintained by your Provider.

If you are a patient (or the legal representative of a patient), we will collect identifiable health information from you with your knowledge during the registration process and in the event you request information or services. We may collect any identifiable health information that you provide to us, such as your name, address, email address, gender, birth date and phone number. If you access the Service patient registration via the link provided by your physician, certain basic information may be prefilled into your Service registration, which you will need to verify.

When you register for the Service via the MyHealthRecord.com website, the registration process requires you to choose a user name and password for your account, which you should keep and maintain as confidential. If you choose to share your user name and password you understand that those individuals to whom you share that information will have access to your identifiable health information and will be able to add to your identifiable health information as though they were you. You will be responsible for all activities by users resulting from sharing or not maintaining the confidentiality of your user name or password, as more fully described in the Terms of Service. If you are a registered patient user of the Service, your identifiable health information (or that of the patient for whom you are the legal representative) currently stored electronically in your Provider’s records will become accessible to Us in order to provide you access to such information through the Service.

B. Non-Identifiable Health Information

We and/or any third party website analytics vendor (e.g. Google Analytics) on Our behalf, may also collect nonidentifiable information, which is automatically collected as you browse or otherwise access this Website and Service. We may collect such information by tracking, or asking our analytics vendor to track, your clickstream activity when such information is not tied to a user ID through the use of "cookie" technology or by tracking internet protocol (IP) addresses, as explained below.

To the extent permitted by applicable law, We may use your participation in the Service to communicate to you special offers and featured items, whether from Us, Our affiliates, our suppliers or vendors, or other third parties. If you are receiving additional communications and special offers, you may revoke your authorization to receive such materials at any time by contacting Us using the contact information below or as outlined in the applicable communication. We will implement your revocation as soon as is commercially reasonable. We cannot control any communications and other materials that you may receive directly from third parties.

We may also use your geographic location to provide you with specific content and direct you to your closest service providers to the extent permitted by applicable law.

B. NonIdentifiable Health Information

The nonidentifiable, aggregated health information we collect may be shared with our suppliers and vendors and used in the aggregate to create summary statistics that help us analyze website usage trends, assess what information is of most and least importance, determine technical design specifications, arrange the Website in the most user-friendly way, and identify system performance or problem areas.

C. Aggregate Data

We may aggregate and deidentify in accordance with HIPAA identifiable health information, either alone or with other data to create anonymous "aggregate data" regarding the users of the MyHealthRecord.com website and Service. Aggregate and deidentified data is information that describes the habits, treatment plans, usage patterns, other medical record data and/or demographics of users as a group but does not reveal the identity of particular users.

We may use aggregate data to understand the needs of our community of users and determine what kinds of programs and services we can help provide.

No website can guarantee security or that loss, misuse or alteration to data hosted by or on, or accessed by or through, a website will not occur. To mitigate these risks, we maintain physical, administrative, electronic, technical and procedural safeguards to help protect your personal information collected via the Service as required by applicable law.

We limit access to personally identifiable information about you to our employees and third party agents who we reasonably believe need to have access to your information to provide you with the information or services you request via the Service. In the event that a breach in our security systems occurs and there is a possibility that an unauthorized person acquires your personal information, we will notify you of such a breach as may be required by applicable law.
