U.S. Health Information Privacy (HIPAA)
We understand that most of our U.S. customers are “Covered Entities” under the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) privacy regulations. As HIPAA Covered Entities, our customers are legally obligated to maintain the privacy of all individually identifiable patient information that they create or receive. While AtriCure, Inc. is not a HIPAA Covered Entity , we recognize the impact that the HIPAA privacy regulations have on our customers. We wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that AtriCure, Inc. remains committed to interacting with you and your patients in a responsible manner, and to maintaining the privacy of individually identifiable patient information that we receive on-the-job, consistent with applicable law and regulations.
We have trained our sales and marketing employees about the requirements of the HIPAA privacy regulations and have instructed them that, when visiting a customer’s site, they must comply with customer requests designed to minimize the occurrence and effect of incidental disclosures of individually identifiable patient information.
