CARE PARTNER REGISTRATION: If you received a Care Partner registration invitation code from a MyPHTS Sponsor, your organization is being registered as a Care Partner. Care Partners are other providers of healthcare services to a Care Coordination Member that are licensed physicians or other qualified healthcare professional, qualified healthcare practice, or qualified health plan.
Care Partners are invited by their MyPHTS Sponsor for treatment purposes. Treatment purposes are defined under HIPAA as the provision, coordination, or management of health care and related services by one or more health care providers, including the coordination or management of health care by a health care provider with a third party; consultation between health care providers relating to a patient; or the referral of a patient for health care from one health care provider to another. HIPAA rules permit both the use and disclosure of personal health information (PHI) for treatment purposes without patient consent.
Care Partner registration is free and permits viewing of Care Coordination Reports only.
You may upgrade your Care Partner membership to Sponsor membership at any time by applying for a Sponsor registration. Sponsor members are able to invite care coordination members, invite care partners, and use MyPHTS care management and care coordination services.
SPONSOR APPLICATION OR REGISTRATION: If your organization is submitting or has submitted an application to register as a Sponsor and received a Sponsor registration code, your organization is being registered as a Sponsor defined in PHTS Terms and Conditions.
Sponsor registration is not free. Sponsor accepts MyPHTS Application services and agrees to be charged MyPHTS subscription fees. Sponsor understands PHTS reserves the right to change any MyPHTS subscription fees.
PHTS is NOT a medical provider nor is it a medical organization. PHTS may use and disclose Provider PHI as needed to perform the Services for or on behalf of Provider under the Provider Terms and Conditions.
