E-mail Communication Agreement:
I authorize the staff of North Idaho Dermatology to communicate with me about my financial, personal, health related, or any other information through the e-mail address I've provided on this form. I understand that there are risks associated with using e-mail in general including but not limited to unencrypted messages being sent, unintentional disclosures of information, information that could be captured by another party, or possible delays in responses. If it is urgent, please call us at 208-665-7546 or call 9-1-1 for an emergency or life-threatening situation. I understand I may always use other more secure means to communicate such as by phone 208-665-7546 or by mail (see website niderm.com for address). I understand the risks of using e-mail and will not hold North Idaho Dermatology or its employees responsible for any adverse occurrence. For more information regarding HIPAA and Privacy, see rule 45 C.F.R., Part 164. For each new inquiry, you may be required to agree again to this policy for security reasons. Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you.
