Privacy Policy

 

As health care organizations in the US and around the world strive to improve the quality of their care, a credible, easily accessible resource is necessary to provide them with trusted content and a forum to collaborate with their peers. Patients are demanding better care, and clinicians and managers, confronting a system that is under great stress, need to know how to provide it. Among the most important forms of support are access to improvement knowledge, routes to new practices, and ways to connect with experts and colleagues who have led change. H2Pi.org will help make these interactions possible. We at the Healthcare and Patient Partnership Institute (“H2Pi”), producers of H2Pi.org, believe that you have the right to know how your personal information may be used or disclosed. You take your privacy seriously, and we respect your concerns. Accordingly, we have created this Privacy Statement in order to describe how we collect information, what we do with it, and what controls you have. Please read it carefully, and if you have any questions or concerns, please send us a comment at info@h2pi.org. Unless otherwise indicated, this Privacy Statement applies to your use of the H2Pi.org website.  If you receive a communication from H2Pi indicating that your Information has been collected by H2Pi or that you have been registered for H2Pi.org, your use of H2Pi.org means that you agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement. “Information” means information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, phone number, areas of interest or data related to your improvement work or credit card information, and other information about you that is not otherwise publicly available. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that H2Pi does not own or control, or to people that H2Pi does not employ or manage.
