Wellacy offers secure viewing and communication as a service to patients who wish to view parts of their records and communicate with our staff and physicians. Secure messaging can be a valuable communications tool, but has certain risks. In order to manage these risks we need to impose some conditions of participation. This form is intended to show that you have been informed of these risks and the conditions of participation, and that you accept the risks and agree to the conditions of participation.
How the Secure Patient Portal Works
A secure web portal is a type of webpage that uses encryption to keep unauthorized persons from reading communications, information, or attachments. Secure messages and information can only be read by someone who knows the right password or passphrase to log in to the portal site. Because the connection channel between your computer and the website uses secure sockets layer technology you can read or view information on your computer, but it is still encrypted in transmission between the website and your computer.
Protecting Your Private Health Information and Risks
This method of communication and viewing prevents unauthorized parties from being able to access or read messages while they are in transmission. No transmission system is perfect and we will do our best to maintain electronic security. However, keeping messages secure depends on two additional factors:
1) The secure message must reach the correct email address.
2) Only the correct individual (or someone authorized by that individual) must be able to have access to the message.
Only you can make sure these two factors are present. It is imperative that Wellacy has your correct email address and that you inform us of any changes to your email address. You also need to keep track of who has access to your email account so that only you, or someone you authorize, can see the messages you receive from us. You are responsible for protecting yourself from unauthorized individuals learning your password. If you think someone has learned your password, you should promptly go to the website and change it.
Types of Online Communication/Messaging
Online communications should never be used for emergency communications or urgent requests.
