St. Joseph Health System ("St. Joseph") has special concern for confidentiality in the workplace. Safeguarding patients' health information is not only a legal requirement but also an important ethical obligation. As a health care provider, St. Joseph and its staff are entrusted with clinical information regarding our patients. We recognize that medical and billing records are highly confidential and must be treated with great respect and care by all staff with access to this information. St. Joseph's policy regarding confidentiality of protected health care information reflects our strong commitment to protecting the confidentiality of our patients' medical records and clinical information. The "Notice of Privacy Practices" booklet given to every St. Joseph patient, explains our policies in more detail.
