Aultman is committed to protecting our patients’ confidential information. Aultman maintains compliance with the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and all other federal, state and local laws to ensure the privacy and security of an individual’s protected health information.

As part of HIPAA requirements all new patients seeing their health care provider upon their initial visits will receive a copy of our Notice of Privacy Practices. This notice describes how we may use information about you within Aultman and how we may disclose it to others outside Aultman. This notice also describes your privacy rights as a patient.

What is HIPAA?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was signed into law Aug. 21, 1996, and went into effect in 2003. The Privacy Rule provides federal protections for personal information held by a covered entity, such as Aultman. HIPAA gives you rights over your health information, including the right to get a copy of your information, make sure it is correct, and know who has seen it.

How We Assure Your Privacy

Your privacy is very important to us. Our workforce members are trained in the appropriate use and disclosure of health information and know that it is available for the purpose of providing treatment, receive payment or other health care operations. Aultman has policies in place to address privacy violations or failures of a workforce member to protect your information from accidental or unauthorized access.

Sharing Health Information with Family Members and Friends

HIPAA sets rules for health care providers and health plans about who can look at and receive your health information, including those closest to you – your family members and friends. The HIPAA Privacy Rule ensures that you have rights over your health information, including the right to get your information, and make sure it’s correct. 

HIPAA requires most doctors, nurses, hospitals, nursing homes and other health care providers to protect the privacy of your health information. However, if you don’t object, a health care provider or health plan may share relevant information with family members or friends involved in your health care or payment for your health care in certain circumstances. 

When Your Health Information Can Be Shared

Under HIPAA, your health care provider may share your information face-to-face, over the phone or in writing. A health care provider or health plan may share relevant information if

  • You give your provider or plan permission to share the information. 
  • You are present and do not object to sharing the information. 
  • You are not present, and the provider determines based on professional judgment that it’s in your best interest.

How do I get access to my medical records at Aultman?

Aultman’s Medical Records Departments are responsible for keeping complete medical records for each patient. Your original medical record is property of Aultman, but you can access your health information by either requesting copies or accessing information from Aultman’s Patient Portal.

During your hospitalization, there are processes in place to allow you to review your medical record. Your bedside nurse or nurse manager of your hospital unit can help facilitate this request.

After you are discharged or at the end of your care episode, you may request copies of your finalized patient record. The Medical Records Departments are open to the public Monday-Friday. 8 a.m.-4 p.m., at both Aultman Hospital and Aultman Orrville Hospital.

In order to receive copies of your medical record or to send copies of your medical record to others, you first need to complete an Authorization for Release of Health Information form.

Important Steps:

  • Complete all the fields on the authorization form(s) when requesting the release of your records.
  • If mailing or faxing in the authorization form, make sure you include a copy of your driver’s license in order for us to verify your identity.
  • Make sure the form(s) are signed and dated.

Processing time varies depending on volume and availability of the medical record. A fee may be assessed for locating and copying your record; you will be notified if any fees will be incurred. To reduce copy charges, you may request recent information or specific documents, in lieu of the complete medical record.
