Client Follow-up Sessions and Referrals to Medical Consultants

This information remains with the practitioner and is not shared with anyone without express written permission from the client. With the client’s express written permission, the client’s specific health and client information would be faxed to a FertilityCare Medical Consultant (FCMC) for client/patient care. In addition, with the client’s express permission, general client information may be shared in a case management session with other MBFC Practitioners and FCMCs. The purpose of a case management session is to improve client care by sharing general client information with MBFC Practitioners and FCMCs, without sharing specific personal identifying information. Lastly, MBFC would release private and confidential information if required by law.
The Executive Director acts as the Privacy Officer.
