Your Medical Information & Your Privacy:
Our clinic is committed to safeguarding your health information. We employ an advanced electronic health records system that enables our healthcare practitioners to systematically document patient data, order diagnostic tests, dispense medications, and incorporate specialist reports seamlessly. These computer systems are secured by robust password protections and to prevent any potential data loss, we conduct comprehensive daily backups.
Our respect for the confidentiality of your medical records is unwavering. We strictly adhere to the Australian Federal Privacy Laws and Standards, a legislative framework that ensures the protection of your health information. This commitment ensures your personal medical details remain strictly confidential within our care.
Recognizing the potential risks associated with email communication, we highly discourage its use for discussing personal health matters. Emails may not provide the level of security required for the safe exchange of sensitive health information. As a safer alternative, we advocate for direct discussions with your healthcare provider during consultations or through secure patient portals specifically designed for such communications. This approach guarantees a higher degree of protection for your personal health data.
