PHIL'S FEATURE VIM & VIGOR KEEP YOUR GUARD UP Five ways to protect your health care information With media reports about data breaches and hackers, it's completely understandable that so many of us worry about the privacy of our personal information-including our health care information. For insight into ways we can all help keep personal information secure, I sought advice from Gwinnett Medical Center's chief information officer, Patty Lavely. Through the dedication of Patty and her staff, we are constantly alert for ways to improve information security. Patty Lavely 2 W IN TER 2 0 1 6 PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER Philip R.

Stauffer EDITORIAL BOARD Katie Beckworth, Abbey Brown, Beth Hardy, Mason Havens, Kelli Ledford, Aaron McKevitt, Amy Motteram, Keyonda Noel, Emily Primm, Dolores Ware PRODUCTION Philip R. Wolfe, FACHE, President and CEO Hospitals spend significant amounts of money installing new technology but also protecting the information that the technology stores. I always recommend simple suggestions to my family and friends so they, too, can be a part of protecting everyone's health information. 1. Listen up. At the hospital or doctor's office, if you overhear details about another patient's health or if you can view patient information on a computer Patty Lavely, Chief screen, speak to an administrator. It might help raise Information Officer awareness of an unknown issue. 2. Review patient privacy practices. When in a hospital or a doctor's office, inquire as to who has access to patient information. It's good to understand the processes-who has access, when, how and why. 3. Close the browser. When you're online providing health care information in your patient portal, first make sure the website is secure by looking for a little padlock icon near the top. Second, close the browser after you've filled out your health care information on the site. 4. Beware of email. Never click a link in an email unless you were expecting it. Even if you know the sender, it could be a hoax. When receiving an email from your bank, health care provider or other institution, contact someone there before responding to any requests for information. Never respond with your login and password. 5. Review your records. It's helpful to review your medical records for accuracy as information is added after a hospital stay. You can also view a summary of your GMC visits through your patient portal. Like the adage says, if you see (or hear) something, say something. Through years of experience, I've learned that small actions by many people can be valuable when it comes to protecting information.
