The Nemours Foundation is committed to ensuring that your information is kept private and confidential. Nemours protects your personal and protected health information as required by state and federal privacy rules and regulations.
Notice of Privacy Practices
Nemours maintains a Notice of Privacy Practices that describes the privacy rights of patients and the ways we may use and share your health information. A copy is available to all patients and families and we encourage you to read the privacy practices and reach out to us if you have any questions about how we use your information.
Partnerships and Collaborating Health Systems
We have entered into joint partnerships with other health care providers. Here is a listing of the partnerships and collaborating systems:
Delaware Children’s Health Network
Women's and Children's Health Alliance
Health Information Exchanges
A Health Information Exchange (HIE) is a way to share our patients' medical information electronically between all health care providers participating in the exchange. Authorized health care providers participating in the exchange may supply a patient’s medical information, or receive information about a specific patient. We partner with Health Information Exchanges (HIE) to provide electronic access to your health information. Providing this access can reduce the risk of unnecessary services, duplicate services, prevent delays, and improve the overall quality of the care you receive.
Here are a few of the ways you can escalate privacy issues or just ask questions:
