Our staff are all trained in safely managing patient information and are all experienced in the unique requirements of healthcare data protection.
We treat each patient with empathy and respect, and that respect extends to your personal data. We will never share your data with a third party and we stand by that commitment.
We use several IT systems at the Breast Institute in Wellington to manage your booking, to create and store images for your Radiologist to review, and for our Radiologists to report their findings to you, your GP and your breast surgeon.
As part of that technology process we may request your prior mammograms from other imaging providers. These mammograms will be transmitted across the secure Ministry of Health network and safely stored on our system.
The Breast Institute maintains a Quality Management System and has created several internal polices around the proper management of patient information. Staff are regularly trained on these policies and must comply with them at all times.
The Breast Institute is fully compliant with the Privacy Act 2020.
We only hold enough data in order to perform the medical services which you request. You may request a copy of your data at any time by contacting the clinic. You may of course also request your information is deleted if you no longer wish us to take part in your care.
We pledge not to share your data with any third party without your consent.
