For a good treatment, and as your therapist I have to create a personal file.
This is also a legal obligation imposed by the WGBO.
Your file contains notes about your state of health and information about the examinations and treatments carried out.
This file also includes information that is necessary for your treatment and that, after your explicit consent, I have requested from another care provider such as your doctor. I do my utmost to safeguard your privacy.
This means, among other things, that I:
1 / Treat your personal and medical data with care,
2 / Make sure that unauthorized persons do not have access to your data
As your treating therapist, I am the only one who has access to the data in your file.
I also have a legal duty of confidentiality (professional secrecy).
The data from your file can eventually be used for the following purposes:
– To inform other healthcare providers, for example when the therapy has been completed or with a
referral to another practitioner. Of course, this only happens with your explicit permission.
– For observation during my possible absence.
– For anonymous use during peer review.
A small part of the data from your file is used for my financial administration, so that I or my administrator can prepare an invoice.
If I want to use your data for another reason, I will first inform you and explicitly ask for permission.
The data in the client file is kept for 20 years, as required by law on the treatment agreement.
PRIVACY ON THE INVOICE
The healthcare invoice you receive contains the following information.
This information is requested by the health insurer, so that you can declare this bill to your health insurer.
1 / Your name, address and place of residence.
2 / Your date of birth.
3 / The date of the treatment.
4 / A brief description of the treatment, such as ‘Shiatsu treatment’
5 / The costs of the consultation.
6 / Insured number / name of health insurance
