- Provide and coordinate your treatment among a number of health care providers who may be involved in that treatment directly and indirectly;
- Obtain payment from third-party payers for your health care services;
- Conduct normal health care operations such as quality assessment and improvement activities. For more information regarding HIPPA, click here.
