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 data and those who need data to do their work. Hugo fosters trust by adhering to strict trust principles and cultivating relationships with 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 data and maintain privacy is to our users. We take this obligation very seriously and employ industry leading privacy and security measures. Visit Hugo's Privacy Center to learn more.
A DRUMBEAT OF SUPPORT
Not only do people have the legal right to request their 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 information through education and enforcement of the relevant laws. Learn more.
If your provider uses an electronic health record, you should be able to view your information by registering for patient portal access. This process is simple, but can take a few days if an access code is sent by mail. Visit your provider's website or use this link to locate your your provider's portal registration information and follow the registration instructions. Once you have a username and password you will be ready to link your portal to your Hugo account. Learn More.
