A fundamental commitment to PDC’s clients and their customers is our strenuous adherence to privacy and security policies designed to safeguard any and all health related records that come into our possession.

Security Policies and Practices
PDC and all its employees and contractors are contractually obligated to adhere to strict information privacy/security policies and practices. These policies expressly prohibit the inappropriate disclosure, alteration or destruction of health records or any form of client information.  Examples of protected confidential information include but are not limited to: personal data and information, health records, customer lists, and information pertaining to PDC’s clients.

Any persons found in violation of these signed agreements are subject to disciplinary action as well as dismissal and possible legal action.

All of our employees and contractors are responsible for safeguarding both information and physical assets that store information as well as using computing resources in a secure, ethical and lawful manner. 

Authorizations and Declinations
PDC is authorized to act as a representative of our insurer clients to obtain and review personal (medical and non-medical) information for any requested individual applying for an insurance policy.  Collection and use of this information is for underwriting and claims risk management purposes.

PDC only gathers and discloses information with the insurer as it is expressly requested by said insurer and agreed to by the applicant’s written authorization originally obtained by said insurer.  If an applicant wishes to not have information gathered, said applicant must notify the insurer that originated the information gathering request.

Security Measures
PDC takes seriously the security of the information it collects, and strict physical security measures as well as business continuity and disaster recovery plans provide for the protection of PDC information, assets, and sensitive applications and data.  It is PDC’s policy to protect computer hardware, software, data and documentation from misuse, theft, unauthorized access and environmental hazards. Any and all transmission of personal information is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL), the industry-standard encryption technology. Encryption provides a secure means to protect information as it passes over the Web between servers.

The facilities that house our servers, network devices, backup storage media and other equipment and information are physically secured and attended.  For security and network maintenance purposes only authorized PDC employees monitor equipment, systems and network traffic and employee/contractor access to the system is restricted by highly secure passwords. We perform risk assessment, security audits, and system test activities on an ongoing basis. Our employees and contractors receive frequent training and reminders regarding information security and protecting the confidentiality of information
