Nuance uses secure communications to transfer all information, including protected health information (PHI) and images from the imaging provider to the Nuance servers and to any user with access privileges. All data is encrypted using the same security level as (or better than that) used by financial institutions online.
We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your patient information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access, and located in controlled facilities.
We request all clients alert us, if at any time, they access information that is not theirs. By emailing support@NuancePowerShare.com we are better able to identify potential issues with incorrect access privileges. This identification also allows Nuance, if required, to notify appropriate parties of a HIPAA violation.
How We Use Patient Information
We use patient information collected through the Services, including health information, to provide the Services, and as described in this privacy statement. Nuance may access and/or disclose patient information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Nuance; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Nuance (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety and welfare of users of Nuance services or members of the public.
Patient information collected on the Services may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Nuance or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or agents maintains facilities, and by using the Services, the provider and patient consent to any such transfer of information outside of the U.S.
To keep users informed of the latest improvements, the Service may send you a newsletter. If you do not want to receive the newsletter, you can unsubscribe through a link at the bottom of the newsletter. Nuance uses your email address and password to protect your account from unauthorized access, it is important to not provide other users with this information.
