and Amazon.com Privacy Notice
Through Amazon Clinic, physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners practicing on their own or who are employed and/or contracted by HCPs that are provider groups (“Clinicians”) offer telehealth services to Amazon customers. Amazon does not practice medicine or nursing, and does not interfere with or otherwise influence the Clinicians’ exercise of their professional judgment in providing healthcare services. Each Clinician is responsible for exercising their own professional judgment and complying with all requirements applicable to their profession and license.PRIVACY OF YOUR HEALTH INFORMATION
Protected Health Information (“PHI”) is defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (commonly referred to as HIPAA), and includes information such as a person’s medical history, diagnoses, treatments, current medical condition, and use of prescription medications. On the Amazon Clinic storefront, HCPs will collect or use your PHI to provide you with telehealth services. As a service provider to the HCPs, Amazon Clinic will receive certain PHI to enable those services. When PHI is collected or used by an HCP (or is received by Amazon in its capacity as a service provider to an HCP) it is governed by the HCP’s Notice of Privacy Practices, and not the Amazon.com Privacy Notice. Please see the HCP’s Notices of Privacy Practices for more information on HIPAA, PHI, and how you may access your PHI.ELIGIBILITY AND AVAILABILITY
