By signing this agreement and submitting the enrollment form, I am agreeing to the following terms and conditions:
I am requesting access to portions of my personal health information and the ability to communicate with my HPH health care team concerning my health information. I understand the access is provided over the Internet using an electronic application called “MyHealthAdvantage”. I hereby expressly authorize HPH to disclose identifiable health information to my designated MyHealthAdvantage account for the purposes described below. My continued use of MyHealthAdvantage indicates my agreement to abide by these terms and conditions.
I understand that my use of MyHealthAdvantage is voluntary and that I may cancel my MyHealthAdvantage account at any time. I understand that if I decide at any time to cancel my MyHealthAdvantage account, it will not affect my status as a patient.
I understand that MyHealthAdvantage should never be used for urgent matters. HPH will make its best effort to provide a timely response to electronic inquiries. I understand the staff that needs to respond to an electronic message may not be immediately available. I understand I should allow at least three (3) business days for a response. Therefore, I should not attempt to address emergency situations requiring immediate attention using MyHealthAdvantage. For all urgent medical matters, I agree to call my physician's office, go to an emergency room, or call 911.
I understand that my HPH health care team may send messages to me via MyHealthAdvantage. These messages may contain information important to my health and medical care, and it is my responsibility to monitor these messages. By providing my e-mail address, I have authorized HPH to notify me of messages sent to my MyHealthAdvantage inbox. HPH, its employees, and health professionals under contract to HPH shall not be liable for any loss, injury, or claims of any kind resulting from my failure to read MyHealthAdvantage messages in a timely manner.
I understand that I will be notified via e-mail when there is new medical information to be viewed on MyHealthAdvantage. I also understand that any person with access to my e-mail account will be able to see this notification. I understand HPH will not send private medical information to this e-mail address. However, the notification that new medical information is available on MyHealthAdvantage may be information that I would not want others to know. Therefore, I will take this into consideration when providing an e-mail address.
I understand that any MyHealthAdvantage messages I send my physician via MyHealthAdvantage are accessible to the HPH staff that assists my physician in providing medical care or support services. Therefore, I understand that sending sensitive information that I only wish to discuss directly with my physician may not be appropriate.
I agree not to post any offensive material on this site. If HPH determines that I have violated this agreement and/or abused the use of this service, HPH may, at its sole discretion, discontinue my access to and use of MyHealthAdvantage.
Verification of Identity
I understand that creating a MyHealthAdvantage account is contingent upon verification of my identity by HPH staff or my physician.
Minor Eligibility and Access
If I am an emancipated minor, minor with parental rights, adult parent of a minor patient, legal guardian, or designated surrogate of the patient, or I have Power of Attorney for health care decisions for the patient, I may request proxy access to the patient’s MyHealthAdvantage account. I understand I must have my own MyHealthAdvantage account to have proxy access privileges even if I am not a patient of HPH.
If I have proxy access to the MyHealthAdvantage account of a patient who is incapacitated and my legal relationship with patient changes, I understand I have a responsibility to inform HPH immediately by sending written notice to the patient’s clinic or the HPH Privacy Officer, Hawaii Pacific Health, 55 Merchant Street, 26th floor, Honolulu, HI 96813. HPH reserves the right to revoke proxy access at any time for any reason.
Account Activation and Information Security
I will receive a one-time-use activation code. I will have thirty (30) days to access the MyHealthAdvantage system and ecreate my unique user identification code (User ID) and password. I will need to request a new activation code if I fail to activate my account within thirty (30) days. I understand my User ID and password are unique codes that identify me in the MyHealthAdvantage computer system and allow me to access my personal medical information. Inquiries and entries I make via MyHealthAdvantage will be tracked with my identity.
User names and passwords provide two layers of authentication. HPH stores this information in an encrypted database that is isolated from the Internet. I understand I am responsible for: 1) changing my password on a regular basis; 2) keeping my login ID and password confidential; and 3) changing my password by going to the Password link on the MyHealthAdvantage site if, at any time, I think the confidentiality of my password may have been compromised.
I understand I will automatically be logged off of MyHealthAdvantage after three (3) minutes of inactivity. My MyHealthAdvantage account will automatically be disabled after five (5) failed log-in attempts. I understand I will need to contact the Service Desk for assistance in unlocking the account. See Minimum Browser Requirement and Technical Assistance section below for Service Desk contact information.
I understand that HPH accepts no responsibility for and disclaims any and all liability or consequential damages arising from a breach of health information confidentiality resulting from my sharing or losing my password. If HPH discovers that I have inappropriately shared my password with another person, or that I have misused or abused MyHealthAdvantage access privileges in any way, HPH may discontinue my participation in MyHealthAdvantage without prior notice.
All communications within MyHealthAdvantage between me and HPH are carried over a secure, encrypted connection. HPH will only use MyHealthAdvantage to convey specific information about me or someone I have proxy privileges for or general information about its programs and services. HPH will send me Internet e-mail messages notifying me of new messages in my MyHealthAdvantage inbox; however, these emails will not contain any confidential medical information.
The information in MyHealthAdvantage is protected using high standard encryption technology.
I understand I can terminate MyHealthAdvantage access as well as that of any proxy at any time by sending a Customer Service message in MyHealthAdvantage. I also understand my MyHealthAdvantage account and proxy access will automatically be disabled after 18 months of account inactivity. Proxy access will automatically be terminated upon the death of the patient.
