Data Location, Ownership & Confidentiality:

Q1. Who owns the data and where is the data stored?

As provided by law, the patient is the owner of any personal health-related information documented by healthcare professionals during the course of treatment. The data generated and recorded in your office is always available to you. If at some point in the future you elect to terminate this service a full copy will be provided to you.

Q2. Where is the data stored?

All data and information contained in the secure Voluntary EMR master patient database is stored on Mount Sinai’s servers at our Information Technology Services Center which relieves you and your practice of the operational resources associated with owning, expanding and maintaining your own data servers.

Q3. Who can see the patient's data? Who can see my office data?

Only physicians and clinicians listed within a patient's record as attending, consulting or otherwise directly involved in the care of that patient may view any patient information. Similarly, only users authorized as being part of your practice have access to practice data.
