Protecting the confidentiality of patient results is a primary concern at Alpha1Center. When you submit samples to us, you can have confidence that our laboratory's policies and procedures will never allow your patients' identities to be released to unauthorized persons, nor will your patients' information be released without their permission. Maintaining confidentiality is demanded by the ethics of good laboratory practice and by the Privacy Rule of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Our laboratory is fully HIPAA compliant.
If any questions or concerns about our laboratory's privacy procedures arise, please feel free to discuss them with the laboratory director. You may call the laboratory at (801) 328-4662.
