On April 14, 2003, the federal Office of Civil Rights enforced new rules to ensure this trust between patients and their healthcare providers. As part of those new rules, healthcare providers will be required to obtain your signature in acknowledgement of how the hospital/provider uses and shares your personal health information.

Parrish Medical Center provides every patient with a pamphlet explaining these requirements. It is a very detailed explanation of how your personal health information is used and secured here at PMC.
