At Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham, we care about each patient and family member’s experience with our clinical care and service. This includes protecting your privacy.
Protecting your privacy is required by state and local government, regulatory agencies and BID Needham’s own policies—and we believe it is the right thing to do.
When we talk about privacy, we are referring to protected health information (PHI – information about a patient’s injuries, diagnosis, medical history or treatment) and personal information (PI – a patient’s name, address, social security number, etc.). The Notice of Privacy Practices (linked below) describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed and how you can get access to this information. Please review it carefully.
