A PEOPLE POWERED DATA PARTNERSHIP
With their health information consolidated and normalized in Hugo, people can choose to securely share their data with researchers and industry partners. This People Powered Data Partnership can inform and guide clinical care, help advance medical research, optimize healthcare delivery, improve patient experience and decrease wasteful spending.
TRUST IS KEY
A People Powered Data Partnership works when trust exists between people who generate - and can actually their hold data, and those who benefit from the use of the data. Hugo develops that trust by adhering to strict trust principles and cultivating relationships between people and a vetted community of data users. This new paradigm has the potential to spur a transformative ripple effect throughout the healthcare system. Read more about Hugo's Trust Principles.
WHAT ABOUT HIPAA & PRIVACY?
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) provides all people the legal right to obtain a copy of their health records. Once in their possession, people are free to use their data as they please. Data stored by Hugo belong to the individual and Hugo’s obligation to secure the data and maintain the privacy is to our users. We take this obligation very seriously and employ industry leading privacy and security practices. Visit Hugo's Privacy Center to learn more.
THERE'S A DRUMBEAT OF SUPPORT
Not only do people have the legal right to request medical records, they can request them in electronic format — and the Office of Civil Rights (OCR), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as well as other government agencies, non profit organizations and patient advocacy groups have our backs. They are all helping facilitate patient access to their information through education and enforcement of the relevant laws. Learn more.
If your provider uses an electronic record system, there is a good chance a patient portal is available for you to see your records. Registration is usually very easy, but in some cases it can take 7 - 10 days for you to receive an access code through the mail. We've provided a link to help you more easily locate your your provider's portal information. Find your provider and follow their instructions. Once you've registered, you will be ready to join Hugo as an Early Adopter. Learn More.
