AIDS Project Los Angeles is committed to maintaining and protecting the confidentiality and privacy of our clients. We want you to know that all of our employees, managers, physicians and volunteers undergo training so that they understand and comply with government rules and regulations regarding the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) with particular emphasis on the “Privacy Rule.” We strive to archive the highest standards of ethics and integrity in performing services for our clients.
It is our policy to determine the appropriate use of Personal Health Information in accordance with the governmental rules, laws, and regulations. As part of this plan, we have implemented a Compliance Program that oversees the prevention of any inappropriate use of Personal Health Information.
Because we believe that there is always room for improvement, our policy is to listen to our clients, employees and volunteers without any thought of penalization if they felt that an event in any way compromises our policy and integrity. We welcome your input regarding any service problem so that we may remedy the situation promptly.
