Adelaide Obstetrics & Fertility Practice Privacy Statement
Adelaide Obstetrics & Fertility requires your consent to collect personal information about you.
Adelaide Obstetrics & Fertility collects information from you for the primary purpose of providing quality health care. We require you to provide us with your personal details and a full medical history so that we may properly assess, diagnose, treat and be proactive in your health care needs. This means we will use the information you provide in the following ways:
- Disclosure to others involved in your health care, including treating doctors and specialists outside this medical practice. This may occur through referral to other doctors, or for medical tests and in the reports or results returned to us following the referrals. This may also involve requests for future treatment by other health care and medical practitioners as determined by your treating doctor, especially in urgent situations.
- Disclosure for research and quality assurance activities to improve your health care and practice management. You will be informed when such activities are being conducted and given the opportunity to “opt out” of any involvement.
- Administrative purposes in running our medical practice.
- Billing purposes, including compliance with Medicare and Health Insurance Commission requirements.
