The health system's award - the Professional Achievement Level Ready Shield - celebrates proactive privacy monitoring and a commitment to best practices.

Riverside recognizes patient privacy as a key to building trust within the communities we serve.  We teamed up with FairWarning in 2014 to improve our practices, with the goal of becoming a privacy leader within health care. We receive alerts when suspicious activity is detected. That lets us respond quickly to investigate and resolve issues.

"Our core beliefs include a duty to protect patients' information," said Lisa Salsberry, Riverside's privacy officer. "We want patients to feel comfortable sharing sensitive information. Respecting privacy is part of the Riverside Care Difference."

If you have questions or concerns about privacy at Riverside, you may contact Salsberry at 757-369-1139.
