In rare cases, a lack of access to all of your health records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors; and
Although the electronic systems we use will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, in rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal health information.
