When patients or clients ask you for their account statement information, take the time to ask them for photo ID and a proper authorization before you disclose their personal information.
Help them to understand that they can access their own information or that they can authorize you to disclose their own information to another person (a spouse, for example) only with the patient's written authorization. Even ‘just' health care billing information is important.
Show your patients that you care about the safety of their information by taking steps to make sure we are protecting their patient and client information.
