At the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, we strive to take good care of your health in every way that we can—and that includes protecting your confidential health information. Your personal information is stored in highly secure computers, and the protections are in compliance with all federal and state requirements.
To bring you the best possible care, it’s sometimes necessary to share your health information with other authorized licensed healthcare providers through a Health Information Exchange. This is only done with your written permission and always in a highly secure manner. (For example, VNSNY participates in data exchanges in which an emergency room doctor can learn about the kind of health services, medications, and tests that have been provided elsewhere, whether it was at other hospitals or with a home care organization like VNSNY.)
