For example, we may give information about surgery you had here to your Insurance Company so it will pay us or reimburse you for the surgery. We may also tell your Insurance Company about a treatment you are going to receive, so we can get prior payment approval or learn if your plan will pay for the treatment.Health Care Operations
We may use your health information and disclose it outside BCH for our health care operations. These uses and disclosures help us operate BCH to maintain and improve patient care. For example, we may use your health information to review the care you received and to evaluate the performance of our staff in caring for you. We also may combine health information about many patients to identify new services to offer, what services are not needed, and whether certain therapies are effective. We may also disclose information to doctors, nurses, technicians, medical students and other persons at BCH for learning and quality improvement purposes.
