Privacy and Security Practices

Privacy and Security Practices

 

We take privacy and security seriously at Get Well Clinic

So we started a new clinic from the ground up, to do it right. We bake best practices in to our culture right from the beginning, and encourage others to follow.

 

Secure Strong Encryption Used

Paper charts are insecure and can be easily browsed or misplaced. Hence, we have implemented a near paper-less medical office system. Paper records and documents are scanned in to our electronic medical record (EMR) system, and the paper copy is cross-cut shredded. Any paper handouts given to clients are printed on clean paper bought fresh from Costco. Our EMR uses strong TLS/SSL encryption, and automatically locks out repeated failed logins. Our internal office systems are NOT hosted on the public cloud, but privately hosted on our custom-built Linux servers. Our computer systems are protected behind a network firewall. We have an automatic backup system that uses strong and secure privately-generated (non-third party) asymmetric encryption keys for transfers to secondary backup site (also privately managed).

 

Stringent Clinic Policies

We train our staff on privacy, security and confidentiality. We have them sign a confidentiality agreement stating that they will adhere to our security principles and practices. We routinely monitor our practices and regularly give feedback.

 

We Discourage Unsafe Communication Practices

We discourage clients from communicating with us over insecure email or text message. It is difficult to confirm your identity when communicating with social meda. If telemedicine is required, we have alternative and more secure systems of communicating, such as our private encrypted chat system and encrypted video conferencing.

 

Thank you for putting your trust in us!

Expiring Red and White Health Cards

Are the classic red and white Ontario health cards expiring?

Yes and no. If you receive a letter in the mail to replace or update your health card, you have 30 days to replace it or else it will expire. If you haven't been contacted yet, then technically the old health cards don't expire. However, if you card has been reported lost or stolen, or you haven't used your card in several years, your health card will be cancelled. It doesn't take much for someone at the health office to click "cancelled" on your file. I've heard stories of patients who swear they never received a letter from the government to replace their health cards, and one day they got sick and their health cards didn't work. If you get sick, and your health card is invalid, then you are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan. You will have to pay out-of-pocket for the medical services.

Bottom line, if you have an old red and white health card, forget your nostalgia or stop hiding from the mailman, and go to your nearest Service Ontario office and replace your health card with the newer, more secure, photo ID health card.
