Where you are makes a bit of a difference.  Here, someone can only see test results and information from the same clinic or information sent to that clinic.  My GP can’t see what another doctor prescribed me at a different clinic for example.

None of them see what I claimed on insurance.

I work as IT in healthcare. Under HIPPA privacy laws, no one can access your information unless you grant them access. Even though she works there, yeah, she probably has access to that kind of stuff. At least at our clinic everyone had access to all patient info, but that doesn’t mean we are supposed to access it. If you are concerned, depending on what kind of system the clinic/hospital has, you can request to see who all has accessed your medical information, and if her name is on there you can question what business she had being in there.

Being IT, I run chart audits, so I can see which employees have access a patients information on what day and at what time. If they say they can’t do it I wouldn’t necessarily believe them unless they still go by a paper system.
