We take care to store identifying data separately from this health information to limit the instances and access of Personal Information.
During registration or subsequently, you may choose to use certain features of the Platform that will allow you to input Personal Information with respect to your health, such as the medications you take, the date of your prescription, the date you received your diagnosis, the number of refills you have made, how often you take your medication, the frequency you would like us to send you reminders to take your medication, whether you take your medication, your doctor’s name and the name of your pharmacy, the name of your health provider, and other information related to your treatment or your illness (“Health Information”).

We will also provide certain Partners with your Personal Information in order to help coordinate your care management and help manage your health.
Ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the Personal Information and any other information that you provide in connection with your use of the Platform is important.
