Protected health information (hereafter referred to as "PHI") is information that individually identifies you and pertains to your past, present, or future health status. To promote quality of care, DIA maintains a subset of an electronic health record ("EHR"). The privacy obligations of DIA apply to information stored in the EHR.

We will not use or disclose your PHI except as described in this Notice. In certain situations, we must obtain your written authorization in order to use and/or disclose your PHI.

This Notice applies to all PHI generated or maintained by DIA services.
DIA does not need any type of authorization from you in order to treat you, obtain payment for services provided to you and conduct our "healthcare operations" as discussed below.
Although all records created through services provided by DIA are the property of DIA, you have the following rights concerning your PHI.
We will abide by the terms of the Notice currently in effect. We reserve the right to change the terms of the Notice and to make the new Notice provisions effective for the entire PHI we maintain. We will make available the Notice available when and where applicable.
In the event that DIA is sold or merged with another organization, your PHI may become property of the new owner.
