Confidentiality

The confidentiality of your visit and your medical records are essential to providing the highest quality health care. Visits to the Student Health Center are confidential and are completely separate from the rest of your Kalamazoo College records.

The Student Health Center uses Epic Electronic Medical Records. This involves separate but integrated healthcare providers, delivering healthcare together, and sharing personal health information for clinical care services and related healthcare operations and activities. Only authorized individuals may access and use protected health information in Epic. Registered nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physicians, and consultants giving direct care may read and enter data on a chart. All staff sign a confidentiality form. Those employees with access to medical information shall respect the doctrine of confidentiality and not divulge any information contained in the medical record unless they are authorized to do so by the student.

Your medical records or any information about you may only be released with your authorization by submitting the Records Release form, except in certain cases specified by law. Healthcare providers are required by law to report certain communicable diseases. We may also release information in aggregate for research, public health, and safety issues or to your health insurance for specific billing purposes.
