Information Collected by the Hospital
The information gathered by http://vbpcweb.com generally falls into two categories: (1) information supplied by visitors to the site when they register or initiate transactions, and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through the site. Third-party providers, whose sites are featured on and accessed via our site, may gather information, as well.
The information you provide helps the hospital respond to your employment inquiries. It also assists the hospital in providing your requested physician referrals and any online preregistration program. It also helps in responding to your questions or comments, and assisting you with registration for classes and seminars.
If you submit an Application for Employment, various demographic information is required, including your name, address, telephone number; information about your work history, education, particular skills or training, honors and awards and your professional licenses. You also are asked to provide employment references and your consent to various terms and conditions of employment.
When you supply the hospital with a Referral Request, you may be asked for various personal information, including your name, age, address, telephone number, email address and gender. You may be asked whether you would like the hospital to respond to your request by email or phone, and you may be asked for the identity of your primary health insurance plan. You may also be asked for the name of your family doctor, a description of your specific medical concerns and whether or not you have previously seen a physician about your concerns.
When you elect to preregister for services by completing an online registration form, you may be asked for much of the same personal information requested during registration: Name and primary language of the patient; name of person completing the registration form and his/her relationship to the patient; whether the patient has an advance directive or a durable power of attorney; identification of the healthcare services requested; identification of the patient primary care and admitting physicians; name and address of employer; diagnosis or the reasons for seeking treatment, a history of the patient’s prior hospital admissions; name, address, telephone and social security number(s), occupation and employer of person responsible for paying the bill; emergency contact information; and identification of the primary and secondary insurance plans of the person responsible for paying the bill.
If you request your personal health record the hospital asks for your email address, your name and your complete mailing address to receive your personal health record program. In some cases you may be asked for your name, address, city and state of residence, gender and work and home phone numbers to register for classes and seminars. In all cases where you are invited to submit questions or comments, you are asked for your email address.
