At CVI, we place the highest priority on a patient’s right to privacy. We are committed to providing you and your family with exceptional care and forming a relationship that is built on trust. This means that we respect your right to privacy and will endeavor to protect the confidentiality of you and your family health information–whether this information is stored in a paper or electronic file.

We adhere to the requirements outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), as well as applicable Florida General Laws, which ensure the privacy and security of an individual’s health information and promotes privacy and trust between patients and their health care providers.

As part of HIPAA requirements, all new patients seeing their health care provider, upon their initial visits, are required to sign the Acknowledgement of Receipt of Privacy Notice form to indicate that they have received the Notice of Privacy Practices. Our Notice of Privacy Practices describes how we (hospital/provider) may use or disclose your health information; your rights to access your health information and/or to request changes to your health information. You may also request a list of people or organizations that you did not authorize but who may have received your health information from us.
