Recent amendments to the Privacy Act 1988 require health practitioners in private practice to obtain consent from their clients to collect, use and disclose clients’ personal information. The Energetics Institute acts to protect the privacy of Energetics Institute clients in all that we do.
The ability to create a safe environment for our clients is predicated on therapy d being conducted in a container of total privacy and confidentiality. The Energetics Institute does not keep client session or interview notes on a computer medium at any time due to the ongoing security issues that dog this technology.
The records we keep are done manually, and we keep our notes locked away in a secure and isolated away from the consultation area. Our records and notes which are for our professional use are taken either immediately after or during a client session.
The records are our professional artefacts not shared to external parties. You are welcome to ask us about this process and our retention of information directly with us during a client session.
This means your Energetics Institute therapist will collect information that is necessary to properly advise and treat you. The Energetics Institute utilises a standard interview form which may necessitate the following information being recorded:
- full personal history
- family history
- contact details
- billing account details
This information will normally be collected directly from you. There may be occasions when your practitioner will need to obtain information from other sources, for example:
- your general practitioner, psychiatrist, or medical specialist
- other health care providers, such as a former psychologist or counsellor, or practitioners treating other family members
- your lawyer
- hospitals or clinics
No contact with other professionals will be made without prior discussion with you resulting in your verbal consent. In emergency situations it may be necessary for your practitioner to collect personal information from relatives or other sources where it is not possible to obtain your prior express consent.
Disclosures to Other Parties
Some of our clients access our client therapy services through their employer, or some form of Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Employers normally have a requirement for certain information for their HR systems, such as the session, time, date, cost, duration and employee name. We do not agree release other information such as session content or opinions without the client’s direct consent in writing.
With your consent, your practitioner will use and disclose your information, only as required, for purposes such as:
- account keeping and billing purpose
- referral to a medical practitioner, other health care provider, hospital or clinic
- to meet obligations of notification to motor vehicle accident insurers, workers’ compensation insurers, health funds, or professional indemnity insurers
- complaint handling
- where legally required to do so, such as producing records to court
- to prevent or lessen a serious threat to an individual’s life, health, or safety
No other information is passed on to third parties. There are legal exceptions such as being summoned to a state of federal court of law or required by regulation or compliance to a legalised process.
