At Cooper Home Health our patient's privacy is of the utmost importance. Federal law requires that all healthcare providers safeguard protected health information. All Cooper Home Health employees undergo annual privacy training, and we ensure that all care is managed under strict HIPAA guidelines. Our secure company database holds patient information that may only be accessed by the patient's caregivers and authorized Cooper Home Health employees. In order to provide continuity of care and facilitate effective care planning, it is necessary to share some information with authorized individuals such as your doctor, family member, pharmacist or payer of services. This information is disclosed in our Notice of Privacy Practices, which explains how our patients’ health information can and cannot be used.
