Organized Health Care Arrangements

In support of our commitment to improve health, elevate hope, and advance healing for our patients, we work with different providers, personnel, and entities who may access, use, and share your information for treatment, payment, and health care operations purposes.  Our Notice of Privacy Practices applies to the following providers, personnel, and entities:  entities that are owned or controlled by Atrium Health, including our facilities, practices, departments, and other sites of service; personnel who are employed by, contracted by, train with, or volunteer with Atrium Health;  members of our various medical staffs and their approved personnel who care for you at an Atrium Health location (note they are subject to their own Notice of Privacy Practices at other times); community healthcare professionals that we have authorized to view, access, and/or enter information into your Atrium Health medical record because they are providing you care, handling payment for that care, or conducting permissible healthcare operations (some examples are community care coordinators and outside clinic or public health staff caring for you).

Atrium Health owns Carolinas HealthCare System ACO, LLC (“ACO”), which is an accountable healthcare organization made up of participating providers known as “ACO participants”.  Through the ACO, our patient information is combined with that of other ACO participants so the ACO can perform certain functions on our behalves, such as care coordination and joint utilization and quality assurance activities.  The ACO participants have also created an organized system of health care through the ACO that allows us to use and disclose patient information in our respective records systems for permitted treatment, payment, and health care operations purposes.
