For proper treatment, it is necessary that I, as your treating homeopath, file a file. It is also a legal obligation under the Medical Treatment Agreement Act (WGBO).
Your file contains notes about your state of health and information about the examinations and treatments performed. In your file I also include data that is necessary for your treatment and that I – after your explicit consent – have requested from another healthcare provider.
I'm doing my utmost to ensure your privacy. This means, among other things, that I:
- handle your personal and medical data with care
- ensure that unauthorized persons do not have access to your data
As your treating homeopath, I am the only one who has access to the data in your file.
I have a legal obligation of confidentiality (professional secrecy).
The data from your file can be used for the following purposes:
- to inform other healthcare providers, for example if the treatment has been completed or in case of a referral to another practitioner; this only happens with your explicit consent
- for use by an acting practitioner, in my absence
- for anonymised use during peer review
A small part of the data from your file is used for the financial administration, so that my administrator or I can draw up an invoice. If I want to use your data for another reason, I will first inform you and explicitly ask your permission.
Privacy on the care note
On the care note you receive from me are the data that the insurer asks for. This means that the invoice is suitable for submitting to your health insurer. The note contains the following information:
- your name, address and place of residence
- your date of birth
- the date of treatment
- a description of the treatment, in this case homeopathic advice
- the cost of the consultation
Before the first consultation it is important to return the treatment agreement signed to me.
