Privacy & Security - Nutrition Personified by Dietitian Kanika Malhotra

Privacy & Security


At Nutrition Personified we believe in the power and benefits of better health information. When patients and physicians come together, we can learn from one and another in engaging ways that are simply not possible when we’re looking for health information alone. Because online sharing in health is a new concept, you should be comfortable and confident that you can share securely and privately. This is why on Nutrition Personified you can ask health questions and explore health information without also sharing your personal identity. We call this "secure sharing." How does it work? When you share health information on Nutrition Personified, only you know who you are. Your identity is protected. Your chosen doctor is able to view all your medical details, queries and any supporting material that you may have provided with the case, but what he does not get to know is any of the information which identifies you which includes your name and contact details. Our company culture respects the values of secure sharing. Our employees receive privacy training, and we’ve written our Privacy Statement in easy to read language.
