We Respect Patient Privacy at The Healing Clinics

It’s estimated that there are more than 30,000 medical marijuana patients in Louisiana alone. With the numbers growing daily, the privacy of patient information is not only important, it’s imperative. At The Healing Clinics, we honor our patient’s privacy and have taken extra measures to ensure their records are kept private. We also require all of our employees to pass a HIPAA test to ensure their understanding of patient privacy and what we need to do as their trusted care provider to ensure that. Read more about privacy for medical marijuana patients and what The Healing Clinics is doing that you might not find in other clinics.

HIPAA Compliance

At The Healing Clinics, all of our staff is required to take and pass a HIPAA test. We run our clinics and our daily business based on HIPAA guidelines. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that required the creation of national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge.

In addition, all those who might have any reason to come in contact with data related to patient care (such as an IT tech or software developer and even our website host) must sign a BAA (Business Associates Agreement) and ensures their discretion. 

Also, according to HIPAA compliance guidelines, a patient may have access to their records related to treatment with medical marijuana that we keep for our reference. You may request your recommendation, treatment plan, or a complete set of your documents. You have the right to see and get copies of all documents in your medical records and we are happy to provide that upon your request.

Beyond the Law

It is the policy of The Healing Clinics that each patient should be treated with compassion and respect throughout their journey with our healing team and that includes their privacy. We hold each and every employee to that commitment and we are proud to offer you the most discrete care possible. Your information, and your care, are safe with us.
