HIPAA/GDPR Notice of Privacy Practices
At BioReference Laboratories, Inc. and our subsidiaries, we take our responsibility to protect patient rights very seriously. Therefore, we put great emphasis on protecting the privacy and security of the patient data that we handle daily, as required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology Act (HITECH) regulations, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is especially important in this age of increased automation of electronic health information.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) mandates that healthcare providers maintain the confidentiality of patients’ personal health information, which includes both medical information and individually identifiable information about any patient, such as address, phone number, or Social Security number that could reveal the person’s identity. BioReference Laboratories, Inc. and our subsidiaries prohibit the unauthorized disclosure of such information except as required by law.
