Privacy and Confidentiality Policy
The Winona Health website and My Winona Health were designed and built to exceed existing and proposed federal standards for the privacy and confidentiality of healthcare information. The database and software components are structured to ensure that maintenance and routine troubleshooting occur with no access to your personal information. A 4-tiered security system protects against unauthorized access or misuse by authorized users. As part our commitment to your privacy, our website and My Winona Health adhere to the standards and principles set by Health on the Net (HON).
Access and Disclosure
The Winona Health website and My Winona Health will not disclose or provide access to any personal information to anyone without your permission, unless ordered to do so by a court of law. There may be isolated instances in which our staff must access the database to repair problems. Any access to individual files is carefully controlled. Staff members must document the need for access, log details of the access when complete, and confirm to management that they have accessed only task-critical areas and are in compliance with confidentiality policies.
Before even starting the job, My Winona Health and the Winona Health website staff members undergo a rigorous training program covering the unique responsibilities we bear in the health information software field. The curriculum includes applicable Federal law, personal and corporate ethics, and company policy on health information confidentiality. Staff members are tested on the information. They complete the course by signing a confidentiality agreement that legally prevents them from disclosing or using any personal information they see in the course of their work.
