Healthy Families Confidentiality Policy

How do we keep your information confidential?

  • Records are kept in a locked file
  • Records cannot be removed from the office areas unless they are signed out for a specific purpose
  • Information is shared only on a need-to-know basis with appropriate staff, consultants, and other professionals

Who can see your records?

  • Appropriate Healthy Families staff members
  • Consultants on a need-to-know basis
  • You may see your own records, but other clients may not

How do we use your confidential information?

  • To assess the needs of you and your child(ren) in the areas of health, social services, and education or training
  • To make reports to our funders (your name is not used)
  • To work cooperatively, on your behalf, with other agencies

Are there times when we would share information about you without your permission?

  • If we have reason to believe that any child is being neglected or abused, we are required by law to report it to Child Protective Services/CPS
  • You will be informed before any CPS report is made, except in a life-threatening emergency

CPS reports are made so families will receive the assistance they need to help keep their children healthy and safe.
