1st Step Behavioral Health is committed to maintaining each client’s confidentiality and anonymity. This is our legal and ethical responsibility as mandated by state and federal law. Each staff member is dedicated to upholding proper standards in all communications and records. The HIPAA Privacy Rule provides federal protections for personal health information and gives patients an array of rights with respect to that information. At the same time, the Privacy Rule is balanced so that it permits the controlled disclosure of personal health information needed for optimum patient care. The Security Rule specifies a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for covered parties to use in order to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronically processed health information.
Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers online will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed online, or for requests for communication.
