Patient Privacy and Models Depicted in website photos

The majority of elders featured on our website are actually quite healthy, active members of the local senior citizen community who wanted to help the nonprofit in some way, and agreed to become “model” patients for publicity purposes.

Patient privacy and confidentially is greatly respected and valued. No identifiable information about a patient, family, elder, or person with disability will be discussed with any others without the explicit consent of the person. HIPAA privacy policies are strictly adhered to and followed at all times by Concert Harpist for Compassion and their associates. Any pictured patients featured on the website or publicity materials are either models or are patients who have provided explicit permission to use their photo or story in the nonprofits website and written materials. We serve those who are medically fragile and take great care to protect them and their privacy.
