We collect information to support your care
We collect basic information on patients (for example your name, address and date of birth) so that we will know who you are each time you visit our hospital. We also collect information about the tests, procedures and other care you receive during your visits. Information may be collected and stored in different ways - paper chart, electronic files or images.
We protect access to patient records
The team providing your care including physicians, nurses, technicians, therapists, and other health professionals are allowed to see your health information when required. Sometimes, we ask other healthcare organizations and health professionals for information about you if we require it for your care at Bridgepoint Hospital.
