Notice of Privacy Practices
A complete picture of your health is important to providing quality medical care. Dartmouth-Hitchcock understands your medical care may be managed by both Dartmouth-Hitchcock and non-Dartmouth-Hitchcock healthcare teams. Your Dartmouth-Hitchcock providers believe that timely access to all your health information will improve the quality of care you receive.
As part of your care and treatment, we may transmit PHI through a health information exchange to other health care providers involved in your care. The New Hampshire Health Information Organization (NHHIO) is a New Hampshire non-profit organization that has been authorized to operate a New Hampshire statewide electronic health information network to share patient health information between health care providers in a timely, secure, and confidential manner.
Under New Hampshire State Law, you may request that we not share your name and address or PHI with NHHIO or use NHHIO as one of the methods by which we electronically transmit your PHI.
To opt out, please sign and date the Opt Out form, and return to Dartmouth-Hitchcock address on the form.
If you wish to speak with someone, you may call (603) 650-7110 or visit one of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Privacy Offices locations in Lebanon, Manchester, Concord, Keene or Nashua.
If required by law, your information will be sent via the NHHIO for Public Health reporting, regardless of your opt out intentions.
