We collect information to support and ensure the best care
As a patient at Bridgepoint Health, we collect basic information (for example your name, address and date of birth) so that we will know who you are each time you visit Bridgepoint Health. We also collect information about the tests, procedures and other care you receive during your visits.
We protect access to patient records
The people at Bridgepoint Health who provide patient care are allowed to see patient health information; however, their access is also carefully monitored. This group includes physicians, nurses, technicians, therapists, and other health professionals who provide your care.
Sometimes, we ask other health care organizations and health professionals for information about you if we require it for your care at Bridgepoint Health.

- To provide you with health care services.
- To comply with legal and regulatory requirements.
- To make our health services better and more efficient.
- To support research.
- To support educational activities.
