Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

On our website, we collect the following types of information:

Information you provide to us directly ─ We ask for certain types of personal information when you correspond with us, request a demo, request a speaker, or otherwise engage with us on our website, including your name,  email address, and phone number. We may also collect personal information when you correspond with us via email. We use the personal information we collect to operate, maintain, and provide the features and functionality of the website, and to communicate with you.

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact.

We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order. All third parties who receive personal information about our users are not permitted to use personal information they access or receive from us for any other purposes than as needed to carry out their work for us. If vendors require a student’s personal information in order to deliver our service, these third parties are obligated to adhere to Scribe EMR’s  commitments to data use and security as stated within this privacy policy.

ClinicaClinical Documentation and medical coding services: 

Scribe EMR services involve providing healthcare providers with secure telemedicine applications that enable them to receive assistance via a remote scribe to document a clinical encounter into a patient’s Electronic Health Records (EHR) and provide medical coding services. ScribeEMR services save healthcare providers time, allow them to better focus on the patient, and improve the quality of medical documentation. When we provide these services, we are subject to a federal medical privacy law called HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Users of our services must agree to additional terms in order to use our services in compliance with HIPAA. We are classified as a Business Associate under HIPAA, and that law’s protections apply to all patient information we access.

Any personal information collected through our website is not subject to HIPAA, which is why this Privacy Statement describes the privacy practices and protections applicable to personal information we collect online.

Third Party Tracking and Online Advertising: 

We may permit third party online advertising networks to collect information from visitors to our website: https://scribeemr.com to provide customized content, advertising and commercial messaging. Typically, this information is collected through cookies or similar tracking technologies. You may be able to set your browser to reject cookies or other tracking technology by actively managing the settings on your browser or mobile device.

We do not collect, maintain, use, or share personal information beyond what is needed for fulfilling your request, or for performing our services. “Scribing” and “Coding” are services or functions that customarily take place at the direction of the healthcare provider and institution, for which the institutions or agency would otherwise use its own employees. These services aid in the management, documentation, reimbursement and provision of healthcare.

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website: info@scribeemr.com  / +1 (800) 200-8739:

Security: 

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
