As part of providing patient navigation services, we maintain an electronic record for every NaviCare client using a secure online research database. Included in this database is the patient’s medicare number. Medicare numbers will be collected for the explicit purpose of linking them to administrative data. Please note that this data, once linked, will be deidentified. Information is collected primarily to provide navigational services, but also to gather information on how well the program is working; to inform changes in policy and practice; and for research. No identifiable client information is reported.
