Patients need to know their rights which includes access to medical treatment, information, choice, privacy, and the right to complain.
US/Canada (PRWEB) April 29, 2012
CEO of Medaway Health and Gorgeous Getaways announced today their launch of their global system, focused at protecting the privacy and confidentiality of client records based on international standards. With more and more people traveling abroad seeking affordable, and immediate Healthcare treatments, it has become increasingly important for medical records to not only be accessible but also protected.
With a 20 year background in information technology working for global communication companies CEO, Rachel Rowling has researched global Health privacy laws to ensure her company's clients are protected when it comes to the transfer of medical information and client photographs. “Patients need to be aware that sending medical information or photographs through email or through the internet is just not secure". We take this very seriously and model our business, and partner standards around the rights, and privacy of our clients," says CEO Rachel Rowling.
Their system is a collaboration of multiple technology partners that ensure complete client privacy from the moment of initial inquiry and consultation through to post follow up support once clients have returned home. The system is designed to comply with HIPAA (USA), ATIP (Canada), NPP (Australia), HIPC (New Zealand), NHS (United Kingdom, and HST (South Africa), but is adaptable to suit the privacy requirement of all countries.
