Management of Personal Protected Health Information

Client files are held by electronic document management systems or secure locked filing cabinets, which are accessible only to Jacqueline Saad of My Brain Map. Each file includes personal information such as name, address, contact phone numbers, medical history, referrals and other personal information collected to provide the psychological service. Only administrative details such as name, address, contact phone numbers, referrer details, billing and appointment history are accessible by the reception team at St Leonard’s Specialist Clinic. If a client may also attend a consultation with another independent clinician at the St Leonard’s Specialist Clinic, separate client files containing clinical notes kept by each clinician are not accessible between Jacqueline Saad or the other treating clinician. Access to this information is password-protected and subject to Australian Privacy Principles (APP).

    • name, address and date of birth
    • mobile phone number so we can send you an SMS to confirm appointments and/or
      communicate with you
    • email address to communicate with you about health and practice related matters, telehealth links and appointment reminders
    • your Medicare number, Veterans’ Affairs number, Private Health Fund details (where
