Protecting your privacy and data

Keeping your information safe and secure is vital to CareHQ. That’s why our management and use of data is fully compliant with the Privacy Act 1993 (or, from 1 December 2020, the Privacy Act 2020), the Health Information Privacy Code and our own Privacy Policy.

We also encrypt all personal electronic information. And when it comes to sharing medical notes with your usual GP, we always seek your permission first. CareHQ even maintains your personal security during consultations as governed by New Zealand’s Telehealth regulations and policies.

We’re doing our bit, but please remember you need to find yourself a private space to ensure confidentiality during your GP consultation. Stay safe and take care.
