Use of Your Information

To provide you with a health service

We collect information from you to provide you health services. For example, we will collect your information when you:

You can talk to the health care provider about the information they are collecting and using for that service.

For billing and administration

We use your information for administration purposes such as billing and ACC referrals.

To improve the health of our communities

As a health organisation we need to understand our population and how people use health services. We collect and use information to make sure people can access health services, and that community needs are met. The information used to improve the health of our communities will not identify you individually.

For quality improvements, education and research

Information that is used by us to improve our processes and systems, and for education and training will not identify you individually.  Information for research will have ethics approval and will not be published in a way that can identify you.

We use certain third party tools and systems as part of our day to day business. We take steps to ensure personal information is protected, including conducting privacy impact assessments. You can find out more about specific third parties we use below:

We use a third-party tool called Campaign Monitor to manage some of our newsletters.

Where we do this, any personal information you provide (your email address and name) will also be collected and stored by Campaign Monitor and you should also check their privacy statement.
