Healthwise® helps you make better health decisions.
- Healthwise collects usage information to improve the usefulness of our products. Healthwise uses only aggregate information for reporting and improving Healthwise product and website performance. Healthwise may choose a third-party service to collect and maintain usage information.
- Healthwise may disclose this aggregate information to some organizations when required by law or to comply with legal processes.
- In some circumstances, Healthwise may collect personal information and provide the information to an organization that is involved in providing your health care (e.g., your caregiver or health plan). If Healthwise discloses personal information, all disclosures will comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA"), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 ("HITECH ACT"), and privacy laws.
Except as noted above, Healthwise does not release, trade, or sell any individual-identifying information about usage of a Healthwise product to people or organizations outside of Healthwise. Healthwise products may have the look and feel of a sponsoring organization's website; however, all Healthwise information can be identified by the Healthwise logo that is visible at the bottom of each health topic.
