About Protected Health Information (PHI)

Modified on Mon, 12 Feb 2024 at 09:47 AM

Protected Health Information (PHI) is health data created, received, stored, or transmitted in accordance with HIPAA by our system or company and our contracted Business Associates while providing our service. This data may include things like demographic data, medical histories, test results, insurance information, and health data from biometric trackers.

Examples of PHI: Blood test results, weight readings, blood sugar readings.

Not examples of PHI: Number of steps on a pedometer, number of calories burned, weight loss goals, blood sugar goals.

Submission of PHI is not required for a participant to successfully complete one of our training sessions or programs. While some survey questions or trackers may be designed to collect PHI, answering such questions or using such trackers is voluntary, not mandatory. This may be an important distinction in the current environment where incentive limitations remain uncertain for Wellness Program activities that require mandatory PHI submission.
