The federal Department of Health and Human  Services (DHHS) oversees the implementation of these regulations,  including rules regarding patient privacy that were effective April 14,  2003.

  • Health Care Operations:  we may use and disclose your medical information to create data and  statistics. We will also use it when doing the six months long follow up  we guarantee.
