This week we have another article of “housekeeping” so please bear with us. We want to take this time to address how we handle the privacy of our patients so as to better protect your sensitive medical information and so that you know what to do if you have questions or concerns regarding your information.

2018-05-06.jpg

MaiLan and Remy take their privacy very seriously.

As it stands, we are bound by HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) which puts limits in place not only on how we store and handle your information but also whom may have access to said information, but we also have our own policies in place to help provide more peace of mind to our patients.

As many of you know, when we receive a new patient we request a copy of their photo ID in order to ensure that the patient is who they say they are, we then place a copy of this ID in our patient files so that we are always able to confirm identification on follow up visits. In addition to this, we regularly search and provide updates to statewide databases in order to make sure that 1) there is no unknown medical history that could create a risk for our patients, and 2) no one is using our patients’ information to unlawfully obtain and abuse medications.

Lastly, we are not permitted, nor would we want to, discuss our patients with ANYONE outside of our medical staff and the patient themselves, not even to other physicians. If a patient and/or their primary physician (PCP) need us to communicate with a third party, we require that the patient signs a “release form” specifically indicating the scope of such communication. In fact, we will not even confirm that an individual is a patient of ours without such documentation, this is to protect your privacy. Signing such a release does not indicate anything other than your willingness to allow our prescribers to communicate with the person you identify, typically your primary physician, and does not constitute the admission that you are a patient of ours or that you received any medications from our office.

hipaa-patient-privacy

We apologize for the dry nature of this weeks article, however questions have been asked about our policies and we want to express just how fundamentally important it is to us that our patients are protected and receive the best possible medical care.

DUE TO THE OVERWHELMING RESPONSE TO OUR “BRING A BUDDY” PROGRAM…WE HAVE DECIDED TO EXTEND IT THROUGH JUNE!

We are thrilled that so many of you have decided to take advantage of our “Buddy” program! Our first two winners in our Weirton office were brand new patients~

Just to refresh your memory, below are the rules for the “Bring a Buddy” program!

ONE DAY OR DAY ONE…YOU DECIDE …AND BRING A BUDDY!

diet buddies

January has come and gone and many of us are stuck with ye another yet of New Years Resolutions.  The number one New Year’s resolution is…you guessed it…get in shape and/or lose weight. 69% of us make that resolution every year and those who don’t usually start thinking about summer and joining in around now. How many times have you made that promise to yourself?

We try to be here for our patients, but for most of your success, it is entirely up to you. We also know that it can sometimes be hard to lose weight and that a support system can make a world of difference. This is why we are extending the “Bring a Buddy” plan for you with some exciting incentives.

Here is what you need to do:

-You can be a former of a new patient, it does not matter.
-If you are a former patient, you have to be ready for a refill on your meds.
-Bring a buddy with you, you both must get a prescription for meds, HCG, or sermorelin
Both people must physically be present at the time of the appointment.

Here is what you get:

-Each person will get $10.00 off of their medications
-Each person will get a complimentary B-12 injection
-Both of your names will get entered into a drawing at the end of the month to win a free weight scale (like ours in the office) and a credit toward a month of medications and shots.*

*There will be 1 winner at each office each month.  Drawings will take place on the last day each month from January 2018, through June 2018.  The winners’ first names only will be posted on the website and Facebook page.  All offices will be included in this incentive program. No cash or cash equivalent will be substituted for the end of month awards. If you do not want the shots, no cash equivalent will be given.  i.e. You don’t use it, you lose it.

One day or day one?  WE will decide…This is your DAY ONE!  Make it count…with your buddy!       

Congrats to our February winners: Paige at our Weirton office and Wenda at our Green Tree office!

in-cen-tive: a thing that motivates or encourages one to do something.

Everyone has some kind of incentive to lose weight.  Maybe it is your high school reunion coming up, a piece of clothing you have been longing to fit into, or maybe it is just to get healthier and live longer.  Whatever your incentive is, we at Elevation Medical Weight Loss would like to help you achieve it in any way that we can.

One of our latest incentives is our Elevation Medical Weight Loss t-shirt.

Tips on How to Be Healthier in the Fall

pumpkins

Summer is coming to an end and cooler weather is just around the corner. With the temperature drop usually comes less outdoor activities and the inevitable cold and flu season. Here are some tips for enjoying a happy and healthy fall this year. Pumpkins, for instance, are good for more than just carving as they are jam-packed with immune-boosting vitamin A, and are a low-calorie and low carb snack. They can be roasted, mashed, turned into soup and baked. Fall veggies, like fiber packed beets and vitamin  packed Brussel sprouts, can also add a healthy bump to your diet.

pumpkin latte

  • Avoid the Pumpkin Spice Latte trap! You know it’s fall when Pumpkin spice drinks make its debut. Although they may make you get into the fall spirit, they are sky-high in sugar and fat, which adds up to hundreds of calories. Make drinks healthier by choosing non-fat milk instead of whole, no whipped cream, and ask for less syrup. Cinnamon is great fall spice and a better substitute for sweetener.
  • Get a flu shot! The flu shot can cut your risk of getting the flu by up to 60 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These natural immune boosters can help you stave off the virus as well as recover more quickly if you do get sick.
  • Even if everyone around you is sniffling, you should still take steps to protect yourself. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, wash your hands regularly. get plenty of rest, and eat a healthy diet.
  • Fall also means Halloween, which means candy. The best advice for buying Halloween candy is to buy candy that you do not like. Sounds simple, but it will work.
  • Even though there is less sunlight, try to keep the same routine. Your body will thank you.

These are just a few of the things you can do to stay healthy during this jam packed season, but same as the rest of the year we can’t overstate the positive effects of a properly balanced diet and regular exercise.
